A very personal post...

Why are we taught that people who are abusive, behave the way they do because they are troubled themselves? In thinking this way, we automatically brush off negative behaviour towards ourselves and become more concerned with the abusers feelings and trying to help them.
The problem is that not every abuser has problems, and that having this outlook on their behaviour just prolongs your suffering and will ultimately destroy you.
We should be taught to know the difference between the troubled, and just plain trouble.
Libraries can be full of text on how to cope and helped the troubled, but why is it considered allmost taboo to talk about the type of people who can't be helped? We need to know how to spot these 'emotional vampires', how to get away and also to stay away.

You cannot help these people.

Attempting to do so will only be damadging to yourself and loved ones.

The attitude towards abuse in the home needs to change.
