Episode 36 – He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

by | Sep 18, 2019 | Flying Free Podcast, Learn with Natalie, Learning, Waking Up | 4 comments

  1. Boldly walking away

    This is such an excellent podcast in that it makes salient the daily realities of covert emotional abuse. Women often cannot articulate what is so “off,” and this lack of ability to CALL IT WHAT IT IS keeps them trapped.

    I’ve coined a new term that cracked me up (it’s too rare that I laugh at myself!), and I’d like to share it along with its definition:

    INPHALLUBLE: a prevalent and destructive Christian viewpoint that, when one has a phallus, one is never wrong.
