After verbal abuse comes physical abuse | Health And Family, Lifestyle Features, The Philippine Star | philstar.com: "There is a difference between an abusive person and an abuser. Abusive persons are those who sometimes hurt others because they cannot control their aggressive impulse at times. But most of the time, they can control their aggression and live intimately with others peacefully. There would be spurts of aggression, which slips out especially during stress. However, it can be controlled within a few seconds or minutes. Anyone you meet and everybody you know can be abusive, but they are not abusers."
