Needs help with verbal abuse - from the wife!

Least we forget--men can be verbally and emotionally abused too--and its harder to detect because men are less likely to complain or seek help for it. Here's a good story and a good bit of advice:

Needs help with verbal abuse - The Hutchinson News: Advice: "His wife has a serious drinking problem, and when she’s had too much, she goes berserk, screaming hateful things to her husband in front of others. It’s horrific. I can’t tell whether it’s only the alcohol talking or whether she has deep-seated issues. I realize there will be no change until she admits she has a problem."

BUY Respect-Me R.U.L.E.S-Text and Workbook

We've had another graduate--Kirsten--she did great! Kirsten worked harder than most at getting it right. After completing the benefits section, she wrote us:

BUY Respect-Me R.U.L.E.S-Text and Workbook: "I'm working through the individual workbook, having many lightbulbs go on, also some confirmation that I am improving in my abilities to demand respect, particularly when it comes to the "secondary benefits" section.  There were some benefits that definitely used to be true for me, but no longer are. ~Kristen S. "
Kirsten even got a book for her mom! This reminds me that we have a great discount if you buy both the text and the workbook.

Verbal Abuse Complaint Letter

I ran across this verbal abuse complaint letter template on the Internet and got to thinking--what if we wrote complaint letters to our partners? Who would we send the complaint letter? Their mother? a government agency? (in France it not legal to verbally abuse your partner) How about but God? Or our Higher Self? I think it would be a great exercise to write such a complaint letter. It would get our attention--who has the power to stop this? To stop us from accepting verbal abuse?

If you write such a letter--send it to us

here's the template online:

Verbal Abuse Complaint Letter: "I believe that the entire staff has been affected by this atmosphere of negative and threatening behavior. I trust in your discretion and promptness in addressing and mediating this matter as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration."

For "victims" who choose to hang on to their relationships.

This video has been added to our free online workshop. She (the character) actually understands the concept that when we "help" them again and again--we actually reinforce the bad behavior and give them no reason to change--many think that we blame the "victim" again for the abuse. Not true. We recognize that you need a new set of eyes to see what is really going on. You help them more by withdrawing  your "help" than by reinforcing the bad behavior. Watch, and then watch again!
