VERBAL BASHING CAN LEAD TO VIOLENCE

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


In the best of all possible worlds verbal bashing would make no difference to levels of societal violence. However, when certain men who feel so verbally incompetent (in comparison with women) get verbally bashed, they don't respond verbally. They take it inside, and it tends to erupt later as violence. These men are not OK. Their behavior is in no way excusable. They need help, and they are most definitely ill. Their levels of violence are harmful to others and to themselves. To verbally bash them unfortunately has the effect of increasing their levels of violence.


Even simple-appearing trauma knots are often complex, usually resisting being untied with a few simple insights or quick fixes.

Some women seem to have forgotten how women gained poor self-esteem. Women incorporated and partially (or wholly) believed all the physical and verbal putdowns of the female gender by both men and women. In their current anger at past mistreatment, a few women are sometimes doing something similar (giving out bashing putdowns), that unexpectedly wind up increasing societal levels of physical violence. "Do unto others..." is a good motto here for all. Don't bash verbally, except briefly in therapy or by yourself.
