Are you living your life with the burden of emotional abuse?
Living in an emotionally abusive relationships can make you doubt your own survival skills. If your spouse is using negative criticism, angry words and cruel things to speak about you, and to you, as if he is the owner of the universe with all the power to lash out at you and define who you are, you are living in an emotionally abusive marriage.
Step by step, you begin denying and forgetting your own capacity to make yourself happy and healthy. Giving in to his pressure and negative images about you shapes your mindset, and changes your perspective about who you are, about your worth as a person and of course, your life purpose. Having to choose from being emotionally diminished by him and survival is tough: you feel like you have no options, and at the same time, you can’t leave!
My friend Anne told me: “If you would have asked me if this strong self-esteem was even possible a few years ago, I would have said "No way." I used to think that I was almost worthless and that anyone in my circle of friends or family could use this kind of treatment with me. And I would have been ready with a good excuse! I would accept any negative comment or angry attack against me as if I deserved that treatment! As if I was responsible for unleashing his attacks! Can you believe that?”
The question was: What happened in her life before now, that changed her life? How did she do it, and build her self-confidence to the point of confront emotional abuse and stopping it? And her answer was one on one coaching!
