I've been led to write about this, partly because it's a topic that hits home for me as I've experienced it practically all through my life with certain people. It's time the truth be made known that when someone verbally abuses you that it's not just words. Those words are said with power and it's a form of black magic. The abusers have no clue to the evil they do and they tend to demonize the victim and make them a scapegoat for their sins.
Now, I don't want to share my life history and I definitely don't want a pity party, but I grew up hearing how ugly, fat, and stupid I was on a daily basis. I was routinely told how happy certain people's lives would be if I would just kill myself. To this day I have these same abusers telling people that I'm a Satanist and that I deserve to die a horrible death. I have certainly people who have told me to my face that they wished I would get cancer and die.
If you are the victim of verbal abuse you need to view it for what it is, a black magic curse thrown at you and you need to take steps to take care of the matter. The first step is to do reversing work. It's black magic so you can send it right back to the abusers. The second step is to learn to direct the negative energy sent to you and twist it around and use it to prosper your life. If by chance this doesn't clear things up then the last resort is to banish that person from your life and cut off all ties with them.
If a victim does not take steps to counteract this black magic then with time the victim will begin to internalize the abuse and will begin to believe it. You tell a person enough times that they won't amount to anything and then it will come true because that person will begin to believe it. If you have fallen victim to internalizing this abuse you need to do your cut and clear work to rid yourself of it. You need to counteract it with positive self-talk and focus on yourself.
