Why are people abusive? What gives them the right? Nobody deserves abuse. We are all human, therefore all have our flaws.This fact alone should be the biggest reason to not abuse our fellow human beings. We should respect  others unless they do something to lose that. This still does not give us an excuse to abuse them. Abuse shows a blatant disregard and should never be tolerated. Also abusing the abuser only reinforces their anti social behaviour. As the old adage says "Two wrongs don't make a right"

Discipline is Not Abuse. Its Correction. Abuse is taking Punishments way too far from the norm. Know the Difference?

Sometime it's difficult for anyone to understand why abusive situation happens. I understand my mother who was very abusive at the time. It's not a pleasant experience. Life can be really tough for some people.

People who are abusers and who have been abused need to get help and work hard not to continue the cycle of abuse. Be it the pattern of Victim or Abuser. Self acceptance and forgiveness are important keys because what we hate we become.. True that 4me ☀ thru experience.<br />

Could this be why children are such a joy to watch and be with (babies especially)...... they are the closest beings to spirituality...kissed by the heavens that we can touch... that is unless we come across those rare saints like Mother Teresa, Dahli Lama or Darshan Sing.<br />
