Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. Dr. King
Emotional Abuse can be often worse than physical abuse, because it stays with the person & holds their mind a prisoner. They accept the physical abuse because their mind is conditioned that they deserve it or what the person says must be true. I sadly know this & it can take years to retrain & believe in truth, not fiction & escape all forms of Abuse.
