The Power of Invalidation

We all exhibit some kind of invalidation onto our loved ones without realizing the dangerous effects of such an act on their psychological formation and well-being. Verbal communication is the key method through which we humans interact with one another but what happens when this mode becomes a medium for manipulation and emotional abuse?! In fact, invalidation is nothing but a type of rejection that can lead to the latter. Well, having that said, most of us do it out of mere disagreement with no intention to harm the other person's feelings yet, it can be the most damaging type of disagreement.
