Manage episode 295619078 series 2475503
If my husband has a mental health issue or a personality disorder, does that excuse his abusive behavior? My husband isn’t the typical abuser; is my marriage actually abusive or just bad? Am I wrong for wanting privacy that my husband demands I should give up? How will I know for sure that my abuser has changed? Since I’ve made the decision to stay in my marriage for now, how can I grow while doing so?
I answer these questions and more in this episode. This is a replay of a Q&A done in the Flying Free Sisterhood program. One of the many life-changing benefits of this group is the ability to have your questions answered in a monthly Q&A, weekly during coaching, and every day in the private forum.
Listen to learn:
- The boundaries you can (and SHOULD) still have if your husband has a diagnosis
- Though you aren’t a computer, your programming is behind all of these questions, and the answers
- What parroting is (it has nothing to do with birds)
- Why rocking the boat should be your favorite pastime with a “reformed” abuser
- The problem with ALL of these questions (it’s their FOCUS)
