Yes. By the nature of your question, it doesn't sound like we are dealing with an unintentional act. If someone strikes you, even a light touch with the right kind of reinforcement can have a devastating effect on a person's sense of self, especially if the abuser is very skilled at invoking emotions in their target.
Consent is key. Unless that person consented to being hit then it would not be abuse. If they did not consent then yes, It is abuse. Abuse is harm to yourself or others whether that be physical, emotional, or sexual. An the degree of harm/pain is everyone's personal preference. For example: A slap on the face may not hurt me physically but it hurts me emotionally. That would still be abuse.
It is an abuse if that person wanted to hurt you.
Playing around with good intentions of having fun is alright. Throwing objects or forceful acts that cause bodily harm is not.
It does depend and vary but more often than not, yes I would personally consider it abuse. Anytime anyone has the intention of hitting you and causing you pain is what can constitute as abuse. Abuse can come in many forms and it's always good to keep that in mind.
Hello everyone it really worked and I'm proud to testify too. I saw a post about how a lady met her husband and I decided to try this Doctor who helped her because my relationship was failing. Although I never believed in spiritual work. I tried reluctantly because I was desperate, but to my greatest surprise, this doctor helped me and my relationship is perfect now as he told me that my husband now treats me like a queen, even when he had said before that he never loves me anymore. Well, I can not say much, but if you are going through difficulties in your relationship here is the email DROGUDUTEMPLE@AOL.COM your partner will definitely come back to you.. check out his website on droguduspells.webs.com
Nobody deserves to be hit, it doesn't matter what you do, nobody and I mean absolutely nobody deserves to be physically hurt by another human being. So yes, if somebody hits you, it is always abuse.
Yes. There is no excuse to ever harm another person. If you are being hit you should leave and find a safe place to stay. If they track you down and are verbally abusive or hostile in any way contact the police. Abuse should never be tolerated.
