I was truly touched and felt the message within. All of My friends including myself are Damaged Goods, but I have such a different outlook after reading this. This is an AWESOME HEARTFELT piece.
I have to say I couldn't agree with your more. Your perspective on abuse is very refreshing and real. You certainly offer an interesting perspective that I can tell comes right from your heart. There are so many varying degrees of abuse and sometime you don't even realize that the situation you are in is considered abuse. It is very sad. We live in a society that forces us to behave in certain ways and to keep quiet about things that perhaps we shouldn't. Your book is EXCELLENT. It really made me think. What you said about repressed memories and your chapter following SHOULD BE FEATURED SOMEPLACE. I can tell you that I know many people who wonder exactly what you have said - "What's wrong with me? Maybe it's not in the "cards" for me to be happy." It is very sad. I know many women who could benefit from a read of your book. Even with your serious subject matter your narrative voice is very familiar and friendly. You have a nice way with words and your writing has a great flow to it. Your book is nicely crafted and filled with information I am sure many people will find helpful and thought-provoking (even the abusers themselves - they too need an awareness.) It is obvious that you have done your homework and put much thought and preparation into your work. Your book is WELL WRITTEN. I enjoyed my review of it very much.

2 ...often times the most precious gifts are the most fragile, and although they may look good on the outside, they can be broken on the inside.
3 ...Most have been mistreated in some manner or another, and whether they have been physically, verbally, or sexually abused, it leaves them emotionally wounded and mentally scarred.
4 ... And after a while she begins to wonder is she the problem, saying stuff like, "Why can't I find the right guy, why do I always attract the crazy ones, is there something wrong with me, does God not want me to be happy?"
"Why is it that so many women go through these cycles?...
5 ... too many women go from relationship to relationship because of fear of being alone. And this is what the enemy wants because you never get a chance to heal, so that if God sends you the right man you'll run him away.
6 ... many women allow themselves to be used and abused by men simply because they feel like they need a man, like they can't be alone. They've convinced themselves that they can't make it by themselves, and that's why they'll settle for anything."
7 ... But In order to have a healthy relationship you must be able to identify what love is and what love ain't. You see the enemy has taken advantage of low self-esteem, lack of self-love, and popular opinion and made many of you believe that your worth is tied to a man, that your identity is defined in a man, so that you think you are incomplete without one, and that's why you spend so much of your time and energy looking for one to love, but you can no longer accept abuse and mistreatment masquerading in the name of love,
8 ... Because You can't love a man ... until you first learn how to love you.Read more ›
