    Mental abuse may not leave a bruise

    but it's still abuse. And it changes people. My children will never have to worry about that from my husband or I, like both of us did from our fathers.

    I am against bullies in all forms. They should be shamed. Made to feel ugly and unwanted. Bullies should go off and kill themselves. And anyone does not think as I do is a bully!
