Publisher's Summary

Even if you've read Why Does He Do That?, it may be hard to see the truth of what is happening to you. You may feel overwhelmed by confusion, loss, and fear and find yourself looking away from the truth and falling back into traumatic patterns.

Like a constant friend, this collection of meditations is a source of strength and reassurance designed to speak to women like you, women in relationships with angry and controlling men. It helps you to digest what is happening a piece at a time, so you can gain clarity, safety, and freedom. To learn to value and respect yourself - even when your partner makes it very clear that he does not - each day centers on one of seven themes designed to empower, encourage, and inspire you....

Just what I needed.

I will listen to the book many times over . I have many controlling people in my life and this book helps me to understand why they act the way they do and that it is not my fault or my responsibility to try to please them. THANK YOU.!!!

Must Read for Anyone Questioning Emotional Abuse

This book has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I first bought it on Audiobook and I felt like every sentence spoke directly to me. I liked it so much I ordered it in paperback so I could highlight and read certain things whenever I started to doubt myself.
This book is encouraging and lays out exactly the different types of emotional/verbal abuse. It includes the damage it can do to children in the home, not to mention yourself.
I have learned so much about how this can affect the way you begin to question yourself and how you feel, and the damage it can do when it is over an extended period of time.
It is not a book telling you that you must leave the relationship necessarily, it is more to validate you if you are questioning whether your feelings are "normal" and if you are in an Emotionally / Verbally Abusive Relationship. A must read for anyone questioning that or even someone who already knows and just needs some validation to make decisions on their next step, whether it be staying or leaving.

Brilliant insight into the world of the Abuser!

I'm astounded by the insight and comprehensive aspects that are contained in this book. Having lived it, I can't validate this book enough! If you have ever been in an abusive relationship, read this book! It will help you know the truth.

Exceptional!

As a Domestic Violence survivor, I found this book exceptional and spot on. I highly recommend it to other survivors, councelors, DV Advocates, and anyone who works with DV survivors.

This book changes lives!

He lifts the fog from clouded brainwashed eyes! He is an advocate for women. Very anecdotal.

Inspiring !

The daily wisdom companion to Lundy Bancroft’s “Why Does He Do That” is terrific! It is filled with digestible, practical suggestions for women caught in abusive relationships. In addition to his many remarkable insights on domestic partner abuse perpetrated by angry and controlling men, Bancroft refrains from judging abused women and instead focuses on giving them the resources and encouragement to develop positive self-esteem. Journal writing is encouraged. This series changed my life! The narration doesn’t really seem to fit the subject matter, however.
