Book Description

So… you're thinking of leaving a control-freak. Will you remember to ask him nicely? Have you checked it's alright with him for you take the children? Can you have his permission to be happier without him, please?

You, the woman with all spirit crushed, will face a frightening new game with a man who never plays fair. You need truth from the ones who've been where you are now.

Many authors assume that the control stops the day you leave him. But what happens when you cannot relocate far away? What happens when he still controls you through the children after you've left him? And how do you stop yourself running back whenever he turns on the charm?

Much of the advice out there on emotional abuse is written by professionals who explain the reasons for his behaviour. While it might help to know why he does what he does, there comes a time when you have to stop caring about his problems and start fixing your own. The chances are that he won't change. The chances are that he'll covertly punish you all the more for daring to point out his flaws. But YOU can change. YOU can take back your power.

There are no true statistics on abuse. None of us went to a refuge centre when we left.This is the book that wasn't there when we needed it. It's the one that prepares you for the games and the setbacks you'll face with a control-freak even after you've left him. It's for women who want to move out and move on, and it's written by women who did exactly that.

I don't know how I could be so blind. This book brings together all the things I have been learning for the last ten years into a grand awakening. I'm not crazy. The therapist I saw told me I would have to either leave or live this way. I thought I could cure him with my love! Nothing worked, and I tried it all. I'm taking back control of my life! Thank you for helping me see clearly again!

I'm still in a bad relationship. Been in it for 34 years. I almost got out several times & was always either bullied or talked into staying. I am finally getting help & will be on my own soon. It is a scary prospect, especially at my age. This book helped put things into perspective. It validated my feelings & helped me see what I need to do to heal & that I can make it on my own. Reading it from someone who has been there really helped.

The way out is illuminated by the ones who got out before you. Your struggle will be well known and the answers regarding what you should do will be consistently clear. Hardest part is realizing you've known it all along. Truth is our hope, optimism and fear simply fuel denial. Having "been there done that" sisters say it helps dissolve denials power.

Need to understand why you don't recognize yourself anymore since becoming involved with an emotionally and verbally abusive person? This book tells you why and doesn't mince words. I recommend it highly as someone who has read all the books out there but wasn't sure how they could understand what it's really like beyond the author's research so I questioned their solutions. While the outcome is the same (you've got to say goodbye if you want "you" back), it's refreshing to feel understood. Written by women, for women. Get ready for some ah-ha moments.

This is the best book for helping overcome emotional abuse and living under a control freaks rein! Read it over and over and over again it will keep you focused on getting out and staying out of this destructive relationship! If you are like me you have been reading everything you can find on emotional abuse and control because you need someone to set it in stone that yes, you are being abused and you are in the right to walk away. You are! Read it over and over like I said you will see it is not you, you are not crazy or overreacting! Get it and then get out!
