I didn’t have enough time to work with Cindy with the NESTing program, but by intervening on her behalf, she was able to make the necessary changes to have her establish a new life without abuse and fear.
The first sign of the passive-aggressive behavior at the very first indication should have been addressed with a sense of purpose.
People do have bad days and bad moods occasionally, but there is a difference between incidents like that and abuse.
A sense of knowing the differences will help protect those who are being abused. Anytime someone inspires you to feel bad emotionally or physically, it is abuse. Don’t ever believe it’s is your fault or that you have to learn to live with it. It is unacceptable in any circumstance.
