    help for all

    It shocked me at how many people in an abusive relationship respond the same way. You know they are suffering. They know the relationship is toxic and still go back again and again. When I read this book, I finally understood these victims. If a person reads this book before they start to date, they will never find themselves trapped in an abusive relationship, because they will recognize what kind of relationship they are in before their partner thinks of them as property and get out in time. If a person reads this book while in the middle of a relationship, they will know just why they keep going back and going back and going back, and will feel so much comfort in the whole process of leaving. They will know what was going to happen from one minute to the next during the break up and when it happens instead of being terrified they will be reassured that they were right where they should be at that time and if they stayed the course they will be free. If a person has left and was being stalked, they can continue on their quest to stay away from their abusive partner and find comfort in all the feelings that were previously scaring them to death. Some of those feelings are the feelings of missing their abusive partner feeling lonely and thinking that maybe if they went back things would turn out differently. They will be confident too that they will never find themselves in that situation again with someone else either, because they will finally understand the whole abusive situation start to finish. This book can help the forgotten victims too, meaning the people who feel powerless and have lost loved ones, because their loved ones were now trapped in isolation, with their abusers. They could get their power back and their loved ones by getting this book to them. Even if they have to get it to some secret spot that that their loved ones were still allowed to go. They would at least know that once they read this book, they would be getting their loved ones back. This book is sure to change the climate of abusive relationships forever.
