How to survive emotional torture?
If you were to ask me, what is worse? To physically torture a being or to emotionally cripple them, I would say the latter. There are some people out there in the world talented enough to emotionally blackmail you into believing you are nothing. They will tell it to you so many times a day, in so many ways that at some point they will break you; leaving you an empty shell of a being. An empty existence that means nothing; where they can spend years torturing you with unkind words but the first word of anger from your mouth will forever be sealed on your skin as the beginning of the downfall of your soul.
What can you do in such a situation? Can you just stand and be a mere spectator as you see yourself dying inside out; where your voice is considered as a crime and your thoughts are not cared of? I applaud people who have survived in such a place. In a place of vast asphyxiation; how do you breathe? Do you find alternate ways to live? Do you find an alternate dimension to live in? Do you find an escape to run way to when you see none where you are? How long do you escape for? A day, a week, a month?
The sad thing is that there perhaps is no running away from emotional torture. It goes on in circles where if you are not the victim; you are the aggressor and in a case where an aggressor maybe dominant enough, he or she may actually lead you to believe that they are the victim. It is almost equivalent of drowning in a bottomless pool; some days you struggle to swim; other days you just float and still others you decide to let yourself drown in mere curiosity of will you ever discover the bottom.
There is no winning in an emotional torture some environment; it is a mere cesspool of negativity; a cycle of disguised hate; unintended anger towards an unwanted situation reflected upon a wary unwillingly recessive person. If you find yourself in such a situation, I have the following solution for you:
1. Never allow the aggressor to win.
2. Never let your hope die.
3. Never think you cannot get out of the situation.
4. Find an alternate source of anger and sleep over finding your solution because believe me; there always is one. You just have to look a little harder.
