There is a very big lie that abusers tell their targets. It is the biggest lie of all. This lie tells the target: this is all your fault!
Sometimes we get so used to the abuse, that it becomes our normal. We don’t even realize what’s going on. Could balance and harmony be your new normal?
If you have experienced abuse then you know our physical, emotional and spiritual health has taken a beating, and it takes time to deal with the trauma.
