“Until you have the courage to stand up fully inside your life, someone will always be around to abuse you. Indeed, you will keep calling abusers to you till you until you decide that you have had enough. So every time your buttons get pushed, recognize that it is a gift to you, a chance to become conscious of your pattern of self-betrayal.
Don’t blame the abuser. Instead ask yourself, “Why did I allow myself to once again be drawn into a situation in which I am not respected and listened to?” Become conscious of the fear and self-judgment that are running your life. See your low self image. See how you accept love at any price. See how you keep recycling your fear of abandonment because you are afraid to face it head on.”
Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”
