I still struggle with the fact that I actually allowed myself to be in such a relationship and as such have sought out books such as this to validate the fact that what I experienced did really happen.

This is definitely a good read for anyone who's been in a verbally/emotionally abusive relationship, whether with a partner or a parent, but this shouldn't be just for women. Even though this book is aimed at woman, men can also find themselves in these kinds of relationships and could benefit from this advice.

My mother was very verbal abusive, with having Bi-polar & borderline disorder. I grew up having relationships with verbal abuse because it’s all I knew. This book is helpful to build those boundaries that the abuser tries to tear down.
