Beware of abusive personalities who try to isolate you from family and friends and dominate your life. These control freaks are smooth talkers. They are convincing and persuasive Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hydes. They represent themselves one way publicly but behind closed doors ~they transform!! If you manage to escape them, they will beg and plead to get you back. They may even try to convince you that they will change or that they are sorry. It’s a lie. They will never really change. It’s just a ploy to get you back in their icy grip.
Life is too short to allow yourself to be abused mentally, emotionally or physically. These people are dangerous. The longer you stay with them, the harder it is to get away. If they threaten you…believe them. Run. Don’t look back. Don’t waste good, valuable, irreplaceable time trying to change them. Use that energy to change yourself and put yourself in a different situation. Create an escape plan to get away…and GO! Cut off all communication and work on yourself for a while. Strengthen all aspects of your life. Create some new relationships where you are loved, valued and treated with respect. You deserve a better life!! Create it! ~Les Brown
