Also, for men, this DOES happen to you too. You have been taught mantras like: “Sticks and Stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Words from someone you love can rip you apart and you think you are immune.  This is a false assumption.

Anger and rage can also be used to manipulate a good man.  In this way, it is much like boxing. If they can enrage you, you will lose AND you may also forget things.  Then you can lose more.
