Overview

When most people hear the word "abuse," they naturally conjure up images of broken bones, black eyes, and bruises. But in truth, physical violence comprises the vast minority of abusive behaviors in any relationship. The overwhelming types of abuses are those that are difficult to recognize:
verbal, emotional, psychological, financial, and spiritual.

Because no outward signs of mistreatment exist, these types of abuses usually go unnoticed, especially by the woman experiencing them. In particular, abusive comments often lead a woman in any unhealthy relationship to distrust her own reality and good sense.

But He Never Hit Me: The Devastating Cost of Non-Physical Abuse to Girls and
Women
exposes the truth about these destructive behaviors and also reveals the red flags of a potentially abusive relationship. Women can explore their own background information to understand what led them to these men,
the shocking costs that non-physically threatening relationships have on every part of their life, and ways in which they can make changes toward a more positive, healthy, and rewarding future.

Imperative for women of all ages, from teens through senior citizens, But He
Never Hit Me
joins and aligns a large and supportive community of women dedicated to healthy, rewarding relationships.

    The anxiety was there for a reason

    I saw her on TV talking about this book, the shaking, anxiousness, fear, and emotional stress took over me for days. I got the book, my highlighter and post its and began to learn about what I have experienced for 18 years. Someone describe my married life w/him. She confirmed that it is real, the signs, actions/reactions can help you to respond and more on w/o the feeling of guilt. It has helped me with our '7 yr divorce' the judge and my attorney now have data to support me. Imoved out and now live 90 miles from him. He verbally threatned me before I moved. I looked him in the eyes with no expression and walked away. Within the month my 4 children were taken from me without a court order. He worked on everyone, police, cps, school teachers, friends to help him. I know can move on in my life. I have to dig deep to handle him and the alienation from my children, thats tough. My move was the best thing for me and I am working to get me children back But knowing that I wasent the cause to him being the victim, actions, denial and unfairly being treated. Many times he said just listen to me to get his point across. Funny I would listen for hours and he said the same thing over and over w/o saying anything. I was more confused. I eventually learned to read between the lines which was very hard to understand at first. For every action he said or did there would be a reaction to me. Ilearned to stand up for myself and hold him accountable for what he wanted. No me, not my problem. We were never partners working together in our marriage. I did what he would like, unfortunatly he said he would do the same for me and always was the victum to why he couldnt fulfull my wishes Sadly, you feared every momment and that made the years of preplanning to leave the only option. I'm healthier and smile alot and will more with my children. I will help teach them and not allow the cycle to continue. We are Girls,Mothers, and Women that can make a difference in lives. Read this book (w/ your highlighter and postits) referrence anything you read that gives you that emotion you don't like that he makes you feel and you will learn. The ironly of this abusive behavior is that your the victim, he wouldn't take that treatment from you. You don't deserve that toxic venom from him. If you want love and happiness and dont want to be alone, get a happy puppy and love her to pieces!!!

    Highly recommended

    Great book for describing non physical abuse and the resulting confusion a woman experiences at the hands of her abuser. What I do not like is the bias that she seems to have that the only empowering solution is to leave these men. Women who have passively cooperated in the abuse as she describes and then finally find their voice to take a stand may discover the abuser changes as a result just as her own brothers did when she finally stood up to them.
