Main Take-Aways

  • As long as you hold onto the notion that life is happening to you (rather than believing you have the ability to take charge of IT), you won’t ever feel empowered to change your situation
  • It’s important to learn that you are WORTH making changes to your life and also that you CAN make changes to it
  • Learning to react (rather than respond) is the first step to realizing that you have control of the outcome of the situations you face
  • Three ways to start empowering yourself are: creating boundaries, understanding that the abusive situation is an illusion (it is not happy or safe – despite what you want it to be), and strategizing your escape
