Top 10 Most Engaging Verbal Abuse Posts From 2013
Last year, I did a top ten list of the most viewed Verbal Abuse in Relationships blog posts, so I thought I'd do something different this time. The posts on this list earned the largest percentage of comments per times viewed. If you missed them, perhaps you want to add your two cents. Readers tell me all the time they get as much from the comments as they get from the post, so share your experience so we can ALL benefit!
Many of these posts do not have many comments, but don't let that deter you. This isn't about the largest number of comments. It is about the most comments per times viewed, or the most engagement from readers based on number of views.
Happy New Year and may 2014 be the beginning of something GREAT in your life!

Healing and Understanding in These Verbal Abuse Posts
I love this list of posts about abuse because the majority of the posts discuss healing from abuse and understanding why abuse happens. Domestic violence has its foundations in verbal abuse, so if you can learn to combat the verbal abuse, then the domestic violence can disappear - sometimes in the ways we hope, and sometimes not.
My very best to you in the new year. If you're still living in abuse and don't know if you want to leave or haven't found a good time to leave yet, you need a plan. Download this one and fill it out.
