This caller is a woman in India, stuck in an abusive family and in a relationship with an abusive man. She’s dealing with cultural issues and the pressure to get married to a man she doesn’t know or love. Abuse is a huge subject, and there was no way we could completely sort it out in one call. But we were able to make a great deal of headway in terms of finding the strength to take immediate action to protect herself, as well as beginning the process of shifting the underlying beliefs that are the true cause of her situation.
This will be a powerful call for anyone who has the tendency to let others cross their boundaries, whether it has escalated to full on abuse or not. It will also give you powerful insights into how abusive relationships happen, should you have a loved one who is currently in such a situation.
I’m overjoyed to report that this caller has already contacted me with good news: “When you told me to leave the douchebag with such confidence, somehow I finally gave myself permission to let go.”
