That seems a little … over-general? … Ms. Ember. One of the primary characteristics of a classic abuser situation, if I understand it right, is a sharp power differential, where the abuser wields not only violence, but deep psychological control over the abused.
It’s hard to be in contact with a person without some manipulation (broadly construed) occurring, but I never felt I was exactly a leaf in a hurricane. I even gave the authority to pull the plug on my dealings with him to someone I trusted, just in case.
Maybe it was futile to try, but, I don’t think I want to be a person who’d just assume such a thing.
