A person who drains power from another person is a Vampire.
The definition of abuse is : Taking power away from a person. So by default a vampire is an abuser.
Abuse is a common problem. In fact, it’s more common than most people want to admit to in their life. In my work I have to discovered that 1 in 3 people will be an abuser to some degree. Many times abuse will be small or it’s built into the culture around us, so as a result gets ignored, but it’s there all around us.
The solution to abuse is to first (1) release and then (2) empower yourself to resist future attacks. You walk away and release the abuse, this style of action takes away the abuser’s power. Unfortunately abusers will double down in their attacks once you do leave or release the abuse. So the timing in how you release, having a plan, or a place of refuge are all important when escaping abuse.
