Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you...what an unfortunate myth You may have been raised with this myth only to find out through harsh experiences of emotional abuse that words can have a devastating effect on your life. Other forms of emotional abuse can devastate you as well, damaging your self-image and affecting the way you respond in relationships. He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not will teach you how to recognize emotional abuse, explain the far-reaching toll it can take on women, and help you to "live above emotional abuse." You will learn the difference between reacting and responding, and discover ways to thrive within an emotionally abusive relationship. Chapters include tough topics like submission, divorce, and sexuality. Whether you have found your way out of an unhealthy relationship or are currently in one, this book will help you define who you truly are rather than see yourself through the distorted eyes of emotional abuse.
