Abuse can happen to anyone. True or False?

This post is from ShamelessSurvivors.com: It doesn’t start off with a punch in the face or a knock down fight. It is a gradual desensitization. Pushing the limit just a little each time. A comment here. Criticism disguised as concern for you. Teasing in the uncomfortable zone. Testing you to see where the resistance is, backing off, then approaching a different way. We don’t see it at the time but it is ‘grooming’ behavior. Breaking down our personal boundaries.By the time we become aware what is actually happening we are squarely in and the psychological control has happened well before the physical control begins.Judge not. Empower with support and appreciate it can happen to ANYONE. ANYONE. We don’t actually know what we’d do in any given situation.
