Encouragements for the Emotionally Abused Woman: Wisdom and Hope for Women at Any Stage of Emotional Abuse Recovery
For those of us who are or have been emotionally abused, we know how the experience insidiously sabotages our self-esteem. We know how easy it can be to falter, to begin to feel the familiar self-doubt and fear. We need to be reminded that the abuse is not our fault. We need to find the motivation to trust our perceptions -- and find the courage to change our present reality.
ENCOURAGEMENTS FOR THE EMOTIONALL ABUSED WOMAN addresses these needs. Whether we are just beginning to recognize that we are in abusive relationships or whether we have made the decision to break free, this book is here, a consistent reminder of positive growth. Written as a companion to Beverly Engel's landmark THE EMOTIONALLY ABUSED WOMAN, this volume of quotes, insights, feelings, and suggestions contains passages to be read and reread, turned to as a trusted friend, to help us grow stronger with each passing day. Any time, day or night, it is ready, on any page, to help, to heal, and to replenish the soul.
