When I would tell people about my abusive boss, who would slap me across the head for making mistakes, they would often respond: why did you not just leave the job? It seems to be the most popular question when it comes to abusive situations: why did you not just leave?
Well, by the time that a toxic relationship escalates to abuse, the target is already so enmeshed, so far stripped of their power and individuality that they can’t. This is what abuse is and does. It strips a person of their identity, and it takes away their power. It leaves a shell of a person without a real sense of self, without self-confidence, without self-esteem.
That’s why we are going to talk about confidence and self-esteem, and teach you real strategies to help you feel better about yourself.
In the module we talk about:
- Shame and Blame
- Victim Behaviour
- Internal and External Validation
- How to Build Confidence and Self-Esteem
