My parents only got physical when I was younger and it wasn’t that bad but I feel like they still are emotionally abusing me. But I feel so invalid because other people had it so much worse and I was hit a few times and need years of therapy for it.

Please, anon, and anyone else reading this, never feel bad or invalid because you weren’t abused ‘enough’. Someone somewhere always has it ‘worse’ than someone else. Does that mean only the suffering of one single person on earth who has it the ‘worst’ is valid? No.

Your feelings, your pain and trauma are valid and legitimate, no matter how much or little abuse you suffered. Abuse is abuse. Its traumatic, its hurtful, and it can require years and years of therapy to get over, if ever.
