    Oh my goodness. Overactive conscience, this was me. I always had such a hard time even calling what he was doing abusive or wrong and yet I would beat myself up like crazy over things that were not sinful but he made me feel like they were. Somehow it was always disrespectful to him and I needed to unconditionally respect him. Thanks to certain marriage seminars, he decided I needed to agree with everything otherwise I was not respecting him.

    This was so accurate and right on. It’s like we have been living the same life. Thank you for this, it doesn’t feel so empty and alone inside.

    Thank you so much for this podcast! I separated from my husband a little over a year ago and the divorce was finalized in October. We were married for 23 years. I grew up in an abusive home then married a abusive man because I thought it was “normal.” Although it has not been a easy year I do feel like I am finally healing from the abuse. I have lost many “friends” due to my choice to divorce. You’re podcast continues to give me reassurance that I made the right choice. Thank you for sharing your message. Women need know we do not have to be abused.
