Recognizing Emotional Abuse, Recovering Your True Self
In Voice: Recognizing Emotional Abuse, Recovering Your True Self, teacher and facilitator Anne-Mari Morrison has created a uniquely inspiring resource for women affected by emotional abuse. Part memoir and part guidebook to exiting toxic relationships in order to rebuild empowered identities, Voice whispers comforting words and delivers soul-shaking wisdom to its readers. Anne-Mari’s story, which includes abuse, suicide, and healing, provides the raw setting for the lessons she teaches about “finding, using, and enjoying” the voice you may have silenced in order to make an abusive or codependent relationship work. This poetic yet practical book will help you recognize and escape the cycles trapping you in a state of “voicelessness”, and create joyful cycles of empowerment. If you feel like there’s a “real you” who has been shut down by your relationships, its time to connect with that self and listen to what she has to say. Once you do, you’ll be changed forever.
