Verbal Abuse

Brooke, I was explaining the fact that adults can do and say anything they want and it is our Thoughts about it that cause our reaction. I used the example of someone cussing at another person. The recipiant has a choice to feel any way he wants, even notbing at all. My friend asked; ‘Then there is no such thing as verbal abuse?’ VA implies someone is a victim. The tools you teach include total control (of our brain) and accountabilty so in the World of Scholars isn’t VA non existent? I hope you can follow my train of Thought. Thx!!!! Big Hug!!
