Healing Well and Living Free from an Abusive Relationship: From Victim to Survivor to Overcomer

5 of 5 stars

Dr. Probasco begins her story with a personal tale. Hence, she has your attention, right there at the start. "Hello?"

She speaks with conviction, mercy and honesty. There is some Bible Scripture.

However, Dr. Probasco asserts that she is not interested in converting anyone. She simply does her thing from her own sum of experiences. Period.

She implores you to consider your current situation with such integrity. It is for your own good. Really!

Dr. Probasco encourages forgiveness. For your sake and only your sake. That is all. She implores the gentle reader in many manners towards the end of certain chapters. These are good to pay attention to.

Dr. ProbascoQuotes:

Abuse is not something that you can manage or control.

An abuser lacks sincere empathy for the pain he (has) caused.

An abuser lacks true empathy on a normative scale.

Funny how we notice different things as we get older.

In many ways, it was easier just to give him what he wanted.

Shame is a nasty demon.

The fact is you are not responsible for the abuse.

There is tremendous significance in giving something a name.
