    Loss of trust, rebuilding trust in relationships.Collapse )

    • Has abuse impacted your willingness/ability to trust? If not, why not? If so, do you feel it impedes your ability to get close to anyone, or does it only affect specific types of relationships?

    • Is there anything you've found that someone can do to help you feel like you can trust them? Are you more/less likely to forgive them if they somehow betray your trust?

    • Do you have any advice for anyone who is trying to relearn how to safely trust someone? Something that maybe you've found has worked for you in the past?

    Power Roles in an abusive relationship.Collapse )

    This week's questions are:
    - How did your abuser insist on being in a position of power? Was it through put-downs and attacking your self esteem, was it through limiting your choices, or was it some combination thereof?
    - In what ways did that loss of power effect your world?
    - In what way could you reclaim some of your own power?

    - In what ways have you already reclaimed some of your power?
