Are you or someone you know in a relationship that feels off? That you're walking on eggshells, watching your words, not sure what you did "wrong" but you're always in "trouble" from your spouse? Maybe noticing controlling behaviors, put downs, and unspoken rules? 
 
If you're experiencing these, you can't miss this podcast guest, Heather Smith Wolsey. She is a Domestic Violence survivor--and yes, those symptoms of emotional abuse are part of the DV definition. What started as early stages of abuse--emotional, financial, and mental--turned into physical abuse to the point of her spouse attempting to kill her. 
 
Early emotional abuse all the way to severe physical abuse is not okay--for you or your children--and can be stopped. But not on its own. Find out how: how to identify it, deal with it, speak out wisely about it, and stop the cycle of it. Get the support, help, and safety you need for you and your family. She gives several simple but key steps to take to create peace, stability, and quality of life. 
 
As a young child, I lived in a home where I experienced these same things. The fear, the pain, the emotional trauma are all things I have had to go back and work through. I've experienced pieces of these things in other relationships and have had to set those hard boundaries, say those courageous words, and make those gut-wrenching decisions. But I have not once regretted moving to higher ground and disrupting the cycle, for myself and my loved ones. 
 
If you're experiencing any of these aspects of abuse, I urge you to reach out and say something to a safe person. The lives you will ultimately change are worth the courage it takes. 
 
Loves,
Connie
