Tell me a little bit about your situation before working with Leslie. What led you to want to seek out some guidance?
I had arrived at the point in a very difficult marriage where I realized that, although I was not responsible for most of what was happening, I was responsible for some of it, somehow. I knew this because I was slowly “dying” inside. I could not figure out what to do for the relationship. Looking back, the larger concern was I did not know what to do for myself. My wife would not speak to me for weeks at a time.
How is your situation changed since working with Leslie? What positive changes have you made.
Where do I begin? First of all, understanding the manipulation and emotionally destructive abusive behavior was such an eye opener. The truth that the lies my husband was telling me weren’t not nearly as destructive as the lies I was telling myself was life changing. I realized that I continued to accept his lies because I wanted to believe them. I finally began to face the reality of the situation.
“I was a wife, mother, and entrepreneur but above all I was lonely, scared, angry and desperate. I was hiding behind layers of masks.”
Before Working With Leslie
“I met Leslie Vernick as a result of finding her book, “Emotionally Destructive Relationship” on Amazon. After reading, I searched her site and discovered she was a coach/counselor.
I look back and now that it was divine intervention. God knew that I needed someone like Leslie who would walk me through the chaotic mess to a place of understanding my true identity and experience peace and freedom.
