It’s like you’re talking about my life!

Your episode “You’re Not Crazy: You Were Abused” was so on point with what I am going through it gave me goosebumps. Less than a week ago the abuse that I have been living in escalated to the point that the police finally got involved. I’ve been married 6 years and living a double life, strong and happy on the surface, alone and suffering in my marriage... in my home. I was convinced by my husband’s narcissistic manipulation that I was at fault. He has been telling anyone who listens that I’m the crazy one, the one who gets physical, the one who is cheating. He has twisted my words and violated my boundaries for years, all the while making me out to be the bad guy. I didn’t realize the extent of the abuse that I had been living in until I was sitting in the courthouse filling out paperwork for a restraining order and had to write it all down. Since I started sharing my truth it’s as if Pandora’s box opened! I’ve told my friends and family what I’ve been living in and each time I say it out loud, I feel a little bit stronger, no longer giving my abuse the power over me that it has had for so long.

Thank you for this podcast. It is an inspiration. God bless!

Thank you

Everything you said from gaslighting to red flags is all I endured. For two years I was in a physically, and emotionally abused. October of 2017 I managed to finally get away from my narcissist. I had that problem from the beginning thinking he would change, and he would be better. Did couples therapy at 3 months, should of walked away, couldn’t cause he love bombed me so much. Now it’s been almost 10 months. I feel like me, self love is the best. When you are in the relationship you can not see a clearer picture. Thank you for this, it has helped me. Still recovering, however I was a lot stronger than I was when I broke it off and finally walked away ❤️
