Are you always the one apologizing?

Constantly questioning and blaming yourself?

Do you often feel confused, frustrated, and angry?

Aware that something isn’t right about your relationship, but can’t put your finger on what it is?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Nearly half of all women—and men—in the United States experience psychological abuse without realizing it. Manipulation, deception, and disrespect leave no physical scars, but they can be just as traumatic as physical abuse. In this groundbreaking book, Avery Neal, founder of the Women’s Therapy Clinic, helps you recognize the warning signs of subtle abuse. As you are able to identify patterns that have never made sense before, you are better equipped to make changes. An expert in the field, Neal has guided countless individuals to regain their self-esteem, their joy, and their lives. Here you’ll discover:

Why subtle abuse is often overlooked

How to recognize an abuser

What personality traits make you more susceptible to mistreatment

The reasons we stay in toxic relationships—and why it’s so hard to leave

How to avoid another abusive relationship

From letting go of fear to setting boundaries, whether you’re gathering the courage to finally leave or learning how to guard against a chronically abusive pattern, If He’s So Great, Why Do I Feel So Bad? will help you enjoy a happy, healthy, fulfilling life, free of shame or blame.
