Abuse

One abuses another when one uses the power one has over the other to meet ones own needs at the expense of the other.

One of the more difficult aspects of this definition is that it includes behavior that we all do from time to time. For the purposes of building healthy and just relationships this is a better definition than ones which only address criminal abuse.
