Main Take-Aways

  • When you enter into an abusive relationship, it doesn’t begin as obviously abusive. It generally begins as a subtle crossing of boundaries that eventually lead to more extreme abuse
  • Gaslighting (causing someone to doubt their own perception) makes a person easier to trick and control
  • Monopolizing someone’s perception (when an abuser insists you see things the way you do) is a form of emotional abuse that makes the target feel they aren’t entitled to their own opinions
  • Leaving a domestic abuse generally situation requires you to set up an exit strategy before trying to leave because it can take up to 7 attempts to leave

While I may technically be the Director here at SwanWaters, my unofficial title is Healing Cheerleader! I’m a survivor of childhood emotional abuse and workplace bullying. And believe me when I say that I’ve walked the walk when it comes to healing from trauma. I firmly believe that we can undo some of the damage that abuse has done to us, and learn the necessary skills to handle life and all it brings us.
