Publisher's Summary

Are you a victim of subtle abuse?

Are you always the one apologizing? Constantly questioning and blaming yourself? Do you often feel confused, frustrated, and angry? Aware that something isn't right about your relationship, but can't put your finger on what it is?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're not alone. Nearly half of all women - and men - in the United States experience psychological abuse without realizing it. Manipulation, deception, and disrespect leave no physical scars, but they can be just as traumatic as physical abuse. In this groundbreaking audiobook, Avery Neal, founder of the Women's Therapy Clinic, helps you recognize the warning signs of subtle abuse. As you are able to identify patterns that have never made sense before, you are better equipped to make changes.

An expert in the field, Neal has guided countless individuals to regain their self-esteem, their joy, and their lives. From letting go of fear to setting boundaries, whether you're gathering the courage to finally leave or learning how to guard against a chronically abusive pattern, If He's So Great, Why Do I Feel So Bad? will help you enjoy a happy, healthy, fulfilling life, free of shame or blame.

Please keep politics out of a Self Help book.

I was really looking forward to listening to this book. However, when in the forward digs were made at certain political figures I decided it was not for me. I would like to listen to the message without politics being interjected.

Desperate to be loved

This is probably one of my favorite books that truly details the nature of an abusive relationship. Themes like core wounds, the inner child are among some of the useful things discussed. The book really opened my eyes to the fact that one's desperation to be loved can become more important to a person than their being abused. I learned a lot about my own psychology reading this book. Towards the end of the book, there is advice for mothers to give daughters to help them recognize red flags early on rather than later on. That was also very helpful! A solid book from start to finish.
