Support

an image

Learn to tap into community support--either virtual or face to face--and use the resources that give you back the respect and self-esteem you deserve. Although no one can rescue you, they can help you practice behaviors that work in your own best interests and do not promote abuse.

Growth


Your power and your worth come from one place--within. If you don't know your own worth and don't demand to be treated with respect, you invite others to misuse and abuse any relationship you have with them. Once you understand the Miracle Principle, life takes on a whole new meaning.

Strategy


The Respect-Me RULES introduce you to the Miracle Principle, show you how to stop a partner from from calling you names, making accusations, controlling and manipulating your every move and making you feel worthless. But there is only person who can do this for you, and that is yourself.

Comments from Workshop Participants

Laura C.
Please send me the tutorial. My therapist wanted me to check out and complete the tutorial. Thanks!!

My therapist recommended this site and I am looking forward to getting started with the tutorial. THANKS!

Dan
: Hi, I was reading this article and realized I was doing this to my wife. I do not know how to communicate well mainly due to my child hood exposure to abuse and my dad didn't set a very good example. I was exposed to this early on in my marriage and didn't know how to handle it. I retaliated with likewise behavior. That didn't solve anything. I have been trying to analyze and understand what went wrong. Now I know and will use the principles to better my marriage. Thank you so much. Dan

Name withheld-from a psychologist
I am a psychologist myself (phd in clinical). I am trained to be a therapist but am not a therapist (I do research), so what I am about to write is somewhat informed, but I am behaving as though I know nothing. For anyone reading this, I urge all of the targets to use the workshop this site offers and rehearse it often. This is the best one I've seen, since I believe their point of view is really important.

Amanda :This was truly amazing! I hadn't realized how I had let every kind of abuse creep into my 20 year marriage. I see now that it's me allowing these things to continue and that the more I show him my love for him, the more I'm giving my blessing to this increasingly cruel nonsense! No more. Thank you so much for helping me see beyond the "episodes" that, thru my denial and fear have become an expected part of my daily life. I have a long way to go... but I feel FREE already

Kathleen: Fought back for years, so lots of ugly fights. Learning to not react, but it's slow going. {...} I understand and excuse, apologize and seek peace. Have worn waterproof mascara for years. I am a nurse,co-dependent, sick of the eggshell walking. Thank you, just now learning to have my own life. Makes him crazy! Learning I have been volunteering for this position, not hopelessly trapped.

Peggy: I found that your techniques to stop the abuse were great!

CC: Already you have helped me by saying, "You are a target, not a victim". All the professional help I've received so far either a/ just says that I'm an accomplice in the role playing or that I'm in a terrible situation, a victim, what can be done?.So I like your way of perceiving it. And believe me, I really need any help I can get (verbal abuse for over quarter of a century)
