Going down that path will open your eyes to how people really are, how broken our society is and most of all you’ll learn a lot about your force of will and spirit. 

A lot of people that are currently suffering from abuse aren’t even aware that they’re being a victim. These sufferers have no idea that abuse is taking place right under their noses. Sometimes, the perpetrators are individuals that would never be suspected of being a toxic person. The concealed nature of abuse is what makes it cause so much damage over the long term if it is never put to a stop.

Here's some of what you can expect to learn inside the pages of this book:

  • How to stay away from the abusive individual over the long term and what to do in case of a relapse and much more!

This audiobook will educate you on the signs of emotional abuse. You will learn how to recognize the characteristics of potential abusers and where these people might be hiding in your life.

You will know exactly which course of action to take in case you ever find yourself in a psychologically abusive relationship. 

You will also learn all about the stages of recovery from psychological abuse and what course of action to take in case there is a relapse.

Good but Repetitive

I lost the interest after few chapter as I found it too repetative. My apologies to the author. From the reviews you can see many people liked it, but I guess we all have different tastes.

This is it.

Jonathan Costas made a good book here. It has clarified what emotional abuse is and to what extent is it. While listening to this, I felt anger aroused. The illustrative example here showed exactly my mom’s situation with my dad. Whenever we are out, he would point out her mistakes by criticizing her. I am hoping I could reach out to her and let her hear this. Because this is straightforward, I know she will get the idea right away even without finishing the whole book.

Five out of five.

Thank the Angel; my husband is not like this. But I know one who has a very controlled husband. I’ve been convincing her to leave her husband, but to no avail. I want to convince her now with this convincing audio book.

Pretty good book

Helpful! I came here to learn. I didn’t know emotional abuse can be this demoralizing. I don’t want to end up like this. It’s a good thing books like this exist.

Comprehensible

Quite creepy, but holds facts. The sample scenarios made it easy to identify if we are in an emotional abused relationship. It is through this that I came to understand that there still should be some personal space in relationships.

This is well-presented, no doubt,

This topic is often misunderstood. It’s a great guide that comes in sound recording, any parents especially mothers can benefit of. I always believed emotional and psychological abuse is worst compared to physical abuse. If you want to know more about the topic, it’s good to delve into this.

It's an honor to listen to this illuminating book.

I know a couple of individuals who experienced it and obviously, I would prefer not to endure it myself. It's critical to distinguish if it's an emotional abuse so one can escape. Tuning in to this book made me mindful of its risks. Much obliged!

Particularly valued.

Finally, I was at peace with my husband. Although I wouldn’t suggest for you to 100% rely on this. Because the couples involvement will be a big factor. Luckily, I shared it with my husband and he accepted it with open arms.

must-have book

I remember one saying, “Emotional abuse is one fo the most subtle and devastating experience a person can have.” After listening to this guide, I came to the conclusion that the saying is really true. I haven’t experience it myself, but I can strongly feel the pain in this. That’s why, I will be forever thankful for this. It is a must-have guide to consider.

A great reminder.

This won’t make any promises that it will change my toxic relationship, but it gave me a new place to start. At first, I won’t even accept it as it was gifted by a friend. But I am glad I did. I no longer deem it as a negative one, but a beautiful piece. It leads me to forgive my abuser, which I didn’t know was possible. Thank you!

I am highly recommending it.

If like me, you feel trapped in your relationship, I am highly recommending this. I am now in the healing process and it may be tough, but having a guide like this brings back the motivation to do so. Jonathan Costas knows what he is talking about.
