A-Z of Emotional Abuse - Elizabeth Goddard
Through my own healing journey, I know the damage EMOTIONAL ABUSE leaves in your life, PHYSICALLY • MENTALLY • EMOTIONALLY • SPIRITUALLY • FINANCIALLY and the deep forgiveness and healing that needs to take place.
Out of the blue, I received a text message saying I hope this is the title of your next book! I have been reading your Instagram posts and waiting for the next one to come out.
The A-Z of Emotional Abuse started as a project for Facebook and I converted them for YouTube and then added to Instagram.

When I started on the journey of healing from this, I found the information in so many different places and once I started I went down a rabbit hole. I took what I had learned and what I already knew to put it in one place. It isn't exhaustive.

I had been stuck in a debilitating cycle of QUESTIONING and doubting myself - “If only I had said… If only I hadn’t said… Maybe if I had done… Maybe if I hadn’t done…”
I began to realise this was a game and I didn’t have the rules. I was a shell of my former self and I’d lost everything; I was broke and I was broken…
I believed it was all my fault.
The very first part of healing was dealing with TRAUMA BONDING. I then realised the outcome really wouldn’t have changed if I had said or done anything differently, and that closure wasn’t something I was going to get.
