    Hi All,
    Following on from my beginning to understand what is happening to me and why I feel and act the way I do I’m wondering if any of you are like me and learn from reading books?

    If a book has really helped you then could you share the title here. I feel like I need to understand what I’ve been putting up with for decades in a bid to get myself out of it! Does that make sense?

    Can second living with a dominator. I went through it with a highlighter so I could remember all the bits he did to me. It was like reading about my life and really helped me understand that he would never every change.

    I’ve bought when dad hurts mum but I’m not brave enough to read it yet and face the effects it will have had on my children. I also bought operation lighthouse but found that harder to read.

    Also lots of n********t stuff on the internet and followed hastags on instagram if he doesn’t have access to your phone or account.

    They really helped me see the light xxxx
