At first the relationship seems fine, and then things start to get ugly. You are told you're stupid. You're fat and unloveable. Your partner's family doesn't like you, you're not satisfying in bed-you should be thankful your partner's willing to stay with you at all. If these comments sound familiar, you may be in an emotionally abusive relationship. While physical abusers use their fists, emotional abusers take a subtler, more manipulative approach-destroying your self-worth and isolating you from friends and family. Tamara Neal understands. She's watched friends and family deal with this common but often silent abuse and experienced the pain firsthand. Written without complicated psychological jargon, Neal's advice includes practical methods for identifying red-flag behaviors, from the obvious warnings of addiction, physical abuse, and adultery to subtle indications of manipulative thinking. You'll learn, through practical examples of toxic relationships, how to respond, move on, and heal. You are not broken, and you are not worthless. With time and honesty, you can regain your self-worth, end emotionally abusive relationships, and learn to care for yourself. Venomous Relationships offers a new chance. Are you ready to accept it?
