You’ve probably had a coach at some point.
Maybe it was for your little league soccer games, college swim meets, or violin practice.
They teach you new skills, hold you accountable, make you a better person, and (hopefully) are a super supportive mentor.
Then you grow up and suddenly are out on our own. Some of you may be lucky enough to have awesome family and friends, but they’re not going to tirelessly listen to your problems or hold you accountable to learn new skills.

Somebody launches a verbal attack on you and you have no idea what triggered it.
It is not always so easy to recognize, let alone acknowledge that you have been verbally abused. A verbal attack is aggressive language and delivered in a manner that it feels like an attack. Sometimes it is not even the words chosen that make it an attack, but the tone alone that can be abusive. Should the person raise the volume of his or her voice, it becomes slightly more obvious that this is indeed a verbal attack. The conflict is verbal rather than physical. Sadly, people tend to mostly talk of physical attacks and ignore just how much verbal abuse there is and how damaging this truly is.
These conflicts can start in many ways including these examples:
