I’m on vacation this week spending time with my granddaughters so instead of answering a question, I’m going to give you a short 15-minute video to watch and then I’d like you to answer some questions. The video is in French (with subtitles) but a very powerful example of what emotional abuse looks like.
Here’s what I want you to pay attention to.
1. In what ways did Fred undermine Marie’s sense of confidence?
2. How was Marie’s freedom to choose limited by her fear of Fred’s reaction?
3. Describe the elements of confusion and crazy making that you noticed. What kept Marie drawn into maintaining the relationship with Fred? What gave her the courage to be herself?
4. Did you notice any similarities to your own marriage or relationship?
Click here to watch the video, Fred et Marie.
Friends, Post your responses here and let’s get a good dialogue going.
