If you have been a victim of emotional abuse in your love relationship, or if you think your partner might be emotionally abusing you, please take a few minutes to read through this post.
Today I'm releasing my latest book called, Emotional Abuse Breakthrough: How to Speak Up, Set Boundaries, and Break the Cycle of Manipulation and Control with Your Abusive Partner.
Here is a short excerpt from the book:
Emotional abuse is one of the most pervasive but least recognized kinds of abuse.
It can be as damaging as physical or sexual abuse and crosses all social classes, ethnic groups, sexual orientations, and religions.
The common denominators of abusers are not demographic but rather personal, social, and psychological.
The abuser in your life may be attentive and kind in public, but once you’re alone, the nasty behaviors and attitudes appear like clockwork.
He or she might wait until you are in front of family and friends, and then start to make a scene so you’ll quickly back down or comply.
You have become the emotional punching bag for your partner’s criticism, anger, put-downs, and cold shoulder.
The abuse can erupt over just about anything, from matters large to small, such as housework, friends, cooking, work, spending money, children, and going out.
As a result of your loss of self-esteem and your abuser’s denials, you may be confused about whether or not the attitudes and actions of your spouse or partner really qualify as emotional abuse.
To be abusive, the words and behaviors can’t be isolated or infrequent. It must be behavior that’s more the norm than the exception. The qualifiers for emotional abuse include consistency, repetition, duration, and intention.
The intention of control and hurt behind the anger is what jettisons the behavior into abusive anger that must be confronted and stopped.
There are emotional abusers who may be unaware that some of their behaviors or words are abusive. For example, someone whose parents were emotionally abusive may be repeating the behaviors they learned as children.
However, this lack of awareness doesn’t make it any less painful or destructive for the victims. Even if the abusers aren’t completely aware, they must notice the impact they are having on you.
What is the impact of emotional abuse, and how do you deal with it?
Emotional Abuse Breakthrough
The reason I have written this book is to offer hope and guidance to the victims of emotional abuse who are suffering from the debilitating impact of their partner's words and behaviors.
Unlike physical abuse, emotional abuse doesn't produce visible scars. However, the pain and suffering caused by emotional and verbal abuse is profound and life-altering.
For both men and women, this kind of abuse is confusing, frightening, and embarrassing. How do you explain to your friends and family that your spouse is control and manipulating you? How do you tell them about the cruel words, the cold shoulder, and the multitude of tiny emotional paper cuts that are inflicted on you every day?
Emotional abuse systematically erodes your self-esteem and confidence, rendering you unable to speak up for yourself and demand your rightful place in the relationship. But it doesn't have to be this way. You CAN find your power, regain your confidence, and put a stop to the abuse.
That's what I want to help you do in Emotional Abuse Breakthrough — understand what's happening, create powerful steps to establish your boundaries, and make confident decisions about your relationship moving forward.
In this book, you'll learn:
- How to restore your shattered identity and sense of self.
- How to cope with hopelessness and despair in long-term abuse.
- How to stick to your non-negotiable boundaries, even if it means walking out the door.
- The critical, iron-clad deal breakers that should cause you to pack your bags.
- How to successfully navigate inner conflict and turmoil about leaving.
- How to effectively confront your abuser about their unacceptable behaviors.
- What it really takes for an abuser to make lasting change.
- How to manage the resistant abuser if you choose to stay.
- How to protect your children from an emotional abuser.
- The 11-step preparation plan before you walk out the door.
- The self-esteem boosting blueprint for a stronger new you.
- The power of personal responsibility and a growth mindset.
- How to establish the new baseline for a healthy, intimate relationship to use for life.
- The next steps to create an abuse-free future.
Victims often fear if they stand up for themselves, their partner will leave or make things worse.
But once you draw a line in the sand and demand a more mature relationship, your abuser will have to make a choice — either change the behaviors or risk losing you.
Even if your partner refuses to change, this book will help you feel more confident and in control until you decide your next steps.
