Why Covert Abuse is So Destructive

Now all abuse is damaging but with physical, verbal, or sexual there is no doubt that it happened. But covert is done without us realizing that the other person is hurting us or using us. And what is particularly disorienting is their seeming benevolence, kindness, and generosity which is doled out intermittently. It keeps trauma bonded and deluded that the person is not really evil. And that’s the big mistake we make.

The phrase ‘killing us with fake kindness’ is an apt description for the modus operandi of these types of abusers.
