Thank you for sharing this post. I came out of an abusive relationship and my partner is also playing mind games similar to what you went through. Keeping to my stated course has been hard but I am blessed with a great sister and brother-in-law and niece, supportive parents, great friends and wonderful supporters. I have sometimes been tempted to throw in the toeel but after reading your story I am determined to do the deer, not let the deer do me.
Thanks again. 😊
