When someone leads you or makes you believe that something is true under false pretenses and you are blind sighted by the actual reality of the situation and you have believed it for a long time until what you thought was real is taking from underneath you and you are left with damage and so much hurt in your memory of what you perceived the whole time to be real was nothing more than a sick game

Psychological abuse is a form of abuse, characterized by a person subjecting, or exposing, another person to behavior that may result in psychological trauma, including anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. It is often associated with situations of power imbalance in abusive relationships including bullying, gaslighting, and abuse in the workplace. It also may be perpetrated by persons conducting torture, other violence, acute or prolonged stealing and human rights abuse, particularly without legal redress such as detention without trial, false accusations, false convictions and extreme defamation such as where perpetrated by state and media.
Psychological abuse is a great way to keep your kids in line is you lack the intellectual depth as a parent to actually sit down and talk to your kids. Why parent when you can hand the community the whip to lash you son with? If you don't dominate their lives they might do something that makes you look bad.
