Psychological abuse is common and yet few understand the psychological abuse definition enough to spot it. Without the visible signs of physical abuse, psychological abuse can stay hidden for years.
Psychological abuse, though, can be just as devastating as physical abuse. Psychological abuse can affect your inner thoughts and feelings as well as exert control over your life. You may feel uncertain of the world around you and unsafe in your own home.

Signs and symptoms of psychological abuse include:

  • Name calling
  • Yelling
  • Insulting the person
  • Threatening the person or threatening to take away something that is important to them
  • Imitating or mocking the person
  • Swearing at them
  • Ignoring
  • Isolating the person
  • Excluding them from meaningful events or activities

Psychological abuse can destroy intimate relationships, friendships and even your own relationship with yourself.

Zozo & Hockey Dream


Meet Zozo.

ZOZO

ZOZO2

Zozo was born in Toronto, Canada.
His grandparents immigrated to Canada from Guyana.
He is a little boy but a BIG fan of ice #hockey.
He dreams to grow up to be a @Torontomapleleafs player.
His Dad, who also grew up in Canada had even bought an ice hockey stick and hung on the wall over his crib, so that he gets to be familiar with ice-hockey from an early age.
Dad had himself loved to be a hockey player as a kid, but could not afford the expensive gear as his parents struggled with jobs as new immigrants.
Zozo, however, began playing ice hockey as a little boy.

Please wish our Zozo good luck in his dreams to become an icehockey player and plays for Toronto Maple Leafs one day !
