If you are an abuser, I have zero sympathy for you. It is not natural to abuse someone or something that cannot defend him/her/it-self. There is an implicit trust expected by those who need help and if there is one thing that will raise my anger to levels unheard of is that of those who abusing trust.
I ran into this once in public. I was so angry I almost started a fight. Luckily, not sure for who, I was with two other people that talked me out if it, barely. Those who know me would probably be shocked that I was moved to consider this. Not the cause but that I would go that far.
Now that I have other skills and friends acquired over the years, anyone who messes with me, my family or my friends will not have a happy day.
