Leslie Rhodes started this petition to The world's platform for change Change.org and

  I have lived with verbal, mental and emotional abuse since a young age. Growing up, I knew people's actions toward me was wrong. Things I had nothing to do with were blamed on me. Those closest blamed me for their problems and actions. But being brainwashed into believing it was in deed my fault, there was nothing I could do.       Although something within me kept saying, ' this is wrong on all accounts.' People not connected to this weren't aware which made it all worse. Due to so much lying and manipulation by those doing this, there wasnt anything I could do for myself. Having to hear a relative who claimed to love me constantly belittle, criticize, insult me was unbearable. Walking into another room only helped until the cycle started again.

 Finally, while still having to endure all this torment, I began researching this kind of behavior on social media. The word narcissist popped up. It refers to someone who causes emotional, mental and verbal abuse as well. I couldn't believe it. That described my situation to a T. It came as a shock to discover others are or had gone through the same ordeal. I kept thinking, ' Bless this person'. After reading their stories, I felt a connection, someone else was or had experienced the same thing I have. 

At last I had piece of mind knowing that it wasn't my imagination, it was never my fault. Although it's sad to find this informationout so late in life. If only I had of known this years ago. I could have probably done something for myself.

 After seeing that I'm not the only one suffering and realizing this certain subject of abuse isn't classified as aconcern, I decided to start a petition to bring this to everyone's attetion. My hope is a law or bill about this will be made. Maybe schools will touch upon narcissism, teach more about different types of abuse. Possibly an advocate or ambassador will be appointed to speak on this silent subject worldwide. Victims of this deserve to have help, they need to know what to do instead of being still and silent due to fear of their narcissist. Always wondering why they cant always find help or answers. Anyone going through this doesn't know what to do, if they do then the person wont out of fear.

Abuse of any kind is wrong and cowardly. However the abuse of mental/emotional/verbally is much more dangerous because the scars are internal, the pain is psychological. Its possible that many just dont know or understand narcissism, whist the majority dont care or dont want to admit this is real.

In conclusion, I genuinely hope my words reach your hearts.  Hopefully your eyes can see the desire my petition has to save not just my situation, but other victims suffering like this.

                                               Sincerely,

                                               Anonymous
