MANipulated Into Fear
There Is Always A Pattern
About the Book
At the beginning of our relationship each time he portrayed himself as the man I had thought he was years before. Within a period of time he began to manipulate me into fear and take control of my life to benefit himself. All three times in the beginning of my relationship with Rolf he was dedicated to Christ, was family-oriented, charming, kind, respectful, and loving, complimented me all the time, apologized for his actions, and knew how to make me feel sorry for him.
Shortly after I would marry him he would begin to manipulate and con me into doing things I did not want to do. Rolf would call me uncountable times during the day and want to know my whereabouts. He then insisted on being with me except for when I was at work. This took my time away from friends and family, and that is when the mental abuse began. He stopped complimenting me and began calling me names making me feel worthless, and told me that nobody liked me. When I would accuse him of wrongdoings he would become outraged, screaming at me and using profanity. After he gained control of me, the physical abuse began. Later, I learned that I had repeatedly been involved with a psychopath and that there is always a pattern. Get out of the relationship and don’t go back! The person will never change!
Five Star ForeWord Clarion Review - Elizabeth Millard
One of the more hidden forms of abuse comes when a romantic partner, parent, or boss creates a hostile environment by preying on a person's fears or self-doubt. This type of emotional abuse can be devastating and have long-lasting effects. Because it may lack the physical component of violence, a victim can suffer for years before recognizing the abuse.
In sharing her story, Dawnay aims to help prevent other women from falling into a similar pattern of abuse. That impetus is clear in the no-nonsense, focused fury of her writing style.
