When Acceptance is NOT the Answer :: Emerging From Broken

When Acceptance is NOT the Answer :: Emerging From Broken | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

People were expressing difficulty with having been constantly told to “accept others” for the way they are. This directive always seems to be issued when someone is expressing difficulties with having been devalued, discounted and mistreated. I have come to realize that this is where the difficulty lies. When we are directed to accept, it is implied that acceptance means to accept the abusive behavior of the other person. This misunderstanding and false teaching gets deeply mixed into many relationships and is used as a justification for all kinds of abuse.

This is a great article for the newbies. I am still in the power struggle phase.I don't exert power just tell her what I am prepared to do and not do. The difference is she is still struggling to regain power. There is some sort of ridiculous middle ground that can be reached. But reading the comments OCPD can't be fixed like people think it can. Been there done that got the t shirt. Its like living with a handicapped person who doesnt realise it.

How Important Is Self Worth in Terms of Healing?

How Important Is Self Worth in Terms of Healing? | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

For some, the unworthiness runs deep and has been running a long time. It comes in a voice from the past. It is often the voice of someone who should have been trustworthy- a parent, an uncle, a grandparent. But instead this person told them that they were stupid and not good enough in speech and in action every chance they got. The voice stays with people, long past the end of the abusers’ life, and it is dreadfully hard to get rid of. It defines for them who they are and what their position in the world is: loser, disgusting, subhuman, undeserving.

Isolation Is Key For The Ability To Abuse | Verbal Abuse in Relationships - HealthyPlace

Isolation Is Key For The Ability To Abuse | Verbal Abuse in Relationships - HealthyPlace | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
In order for an abuser to gain control of your thoughts, feelings and actions, they must isolate you from others.

 

In the beginning of my marriage, I became isolated quickly partly because it was what I thought I wanted. No, I did not distinctly tell myself, “Kellie Jo, it would be a great feeling to completely withdraw from family and friends and rely only on Will!” It wasn’t conscious, and it’s one of those decisions (and manipulations) that I see only in hindsight.

Child's psychological mistreatment may be subtle but harmful: study

Child's psychological mistreatment may be subtle but harmful: study | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

The child who is routinely yelled at, demeaned, ridiculed, ignored or terrorized by a parent may bear no outward signs of abuse. But abused he is, and the negative consequences for the child's mental health as well as his future relationships and sense of self-worth are generally significant, says a new clinical report from the nation's pediatricians.

Healing and Hope: Am I the Abusive One?

Am I the Abusive One?

Living with an angry and controlling partner can become a twisted world where bad is good, down is up, and wrong is right. Many women over the years have said to me, “My partner tells me that I’m the one abusing him. He has said it so many times that I start to wonder if he’s right. How do I know if it’s him or me?”

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month - Band Back Together | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
A woman who experienced domestic violence first-hand shares her story in hopes of raising awareness for victims, family and friends.

 

I am an educated professional woman with a good job. I married an educated professional man who also had a good job. In retrospect, red flags went up throughout our courtship, but I did not recognize them at the time. I thought I could deal with my future husband’s ‘emotional’ behaviors.


I was wrong.
