Someone you trusted for years is untrustworthy.
Someone you knew to be honorable is dishonorable.
Someone you believed was faithful is faithless.
Someone you knew to have integrity, has none.
Someone you knew to have class, is classless.
Someone who made promises to you did not keep them.
Someone you knew to be a Christian does not follow Christ.
Someone who constantly claimed how much they loved you, did not.
Someone who was your priority was unappreciative of all you did.
Someone who was judgmental, is actually trashy.
Someone who was accomplished, created a myth of successes.
Someone you thought was just moody, was mentally ill.
Someone you believed was just under work pressures, had an addiction.
Someone you loved deeply was a complete and total stranger.
Someone who intended to erase you, released you.
Someone who discarded you, unchained you.
Someone who attempted to crush your spirit, helped it flourish.
Someone who wished to destroy your joy out of spite actually pushed you toward instantaneous good fortune, and more love and support than you ever knew you had.
Someone with envy, jealousy and coldness in their heart, sent you out to where God was waiting all along to embrace, reward, and lift you up to where you belonged.

Join me as I blog through compilations of key descriptions, components, professional and personal accounts, articles, shared experiences, clinical criteria, victimizations, and behavior patterns in persons with high-functioning alcoholism, substance addictions, complex and covert Cluster B personality disorders, and the subsequent emotional abuse of those close to them.
My goal and purpose is to create awareness, share knowledge, information, and education. I hope to provide clarity to anyone who may be feeling baffled and confused, or who may not understand what it is they’re seeing or experiencing in their life, or in the lives of someone close to them. Most importantly as a counselor, therapist and abuse survivor, my hope is for those readers to know they are not alone in their journey of discovery and the process of learning, identifying, and healing from the trauma of emotional and psychological abuse.
