Need more evidence that you’re not alone? There are plenty of songs out there that were written by folks telling the story of a relationship with a Hijackal – narcissists, sociopaths, abusers of many descriptions.
I love you Rhoberta Shaler; you have given me such power, inner strength, wisdom and invaluable insights. Thank you!
That was such a well done interview and so helpful to me! –I took 11 pages of notes! –
I thought I may never have this freedom, I actually felt very little when he tried to pull me in. Thank You THANK You ?
I found Dr. Shaler to be very knowledgeable with many solutions to relationship challenges.
As foretold, my ex got busy trying to engage me on Christmas Day. Thank you, Dr. Shaler for the heads up. Because of this page and your help, I was able to have a wonderful Christmas and not get sucked in ! That’s progress.
Chilled my bones when she said about trying to get you pregnant as means of control! Once I was pregnant (with twins), I suddenly felt terrifyingly trapped and it only dawned on me then.
Your podcast saved me from a world of chaos, fog, confusion, and fear. Everything finally makes sense. I have been listening and learning, connecting the dots, and am tired of sitting in the reality “that this is terrible.” I want and need tools to break extremely unhealthy and deeply rooted family dynamics in order to save my sanity, my marriage, and my family. I especially do not want this to affect my children and how they approach, build, and maintain future relationships.
Thanks for the vid!, make more please. 🙂
Thank you Dr Shaler and may i just say, thank you for your work and your writings. You may have no idea just how much of a lifeline i have been thrown just by finding you and now your group.
