If you have been left traumatised by a break up or divorce, you may be the victim of covert psychological and emotional abuse and not even realise it yet. You might not think of lying, cheating, stealing, manipulating, and slandering as abuse because these things don’t leave bruises or broken bones. Yet this kind of callous mistreatment can leave deep moral injuries that – if left unattended – can fester for years. It happened to Margot MacCallum more than once. Only when she sought to understand why was she able to begin her journey toward healing. Drawing on her own experience, a broad sociological study of the phenomenon, and her training in mindfulness and Buddhism, she explores how to: gain a deeper understanding of the brutal realities of psychological and emotional abuse; make more space for forgiveness and understanding of your own ordeal; overcome painful thoughts and emotions that keep you from moving through victim to survivor to thriver; and achieve a deep state of calm and contentment. That mountain you are carrying? Teach yourself to put it down. Then climb it.
