Escaping the Hijackal Trap! That's the name of one of my books, AND the focus of today's interview with Stephani Roberts.
First, you have to recognize you're in a #Hijackal trap, right? Then, you have to move on to find your best next steps.
Stephani Roberts shares her journey from first recognition that she was in an emotionally abusive relationship--and the red flags she originally overlooked--to the realization that for the emotional safety of herself and her girls, she needed to remove herself from the toxic relationship. Brave move! And, not without it's perils!

Where are you in this process? You might have tucked away your recognition of red flags to press on to get what you thought was possible in a relationship. Now's the time to wake up and smell the herbal tea on that one, and this conversation is a great place to start.
Extricating yourself from a #Hijackal is best done one step at a time, unless there is physical abuse, or sexual abuse going on. In those cases, call the police, and immediately get that on the record. But, if you can safely take your time, take your next best steps, and prepare to leave, that's the better approach. It gives you time to empower yourself, try new strategies, and make better decisions about the life you want to create once you've left.
My guest shares her journey beyond a #Hijackal ex, and how she definitely made lemonade that continues to sweeten her life.
