Are you the victim of verbal and emotional abuse? Do your spouse's tirades leave you feeling worthless, helpless, and afraid? Christi Paul, the anchor for CNN's HLN and truTV's In Session, understands because she's been there. Candidly sharing the disturbing story of her first marriage, she tells how her faith in Christ helped her rebuild her self-esteem and regain control over her life. Includes a list of resources and foreword by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent.
Like millions of other women, CNNs Headline News and truTVs In Session anchor Christi Paul blamed herself for the emotional abuse heaped on her by her first husband, whose violent, profanity-laced tirades left her feeling as though she had no value, no self-worth, and nowhere to turn for help.
Then one day, when Christi was taking refuge in a church parking lot, the verse Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding popped into her head. In that moment, she realized she did have someplace to turn after all. Holding fast to her faith, Christi began the arduous process of rebuilding her self-image and regaining control of her life.
Now happily remarried and the mother of three girls, Christi feels called to share her story in the hope that other victims will find courage to seek the help they desperately need and deserve.
Written with great candor and poignancy, Love Isnt Supposed to Hurt chronicles Christis personal experience of dealing with emotional abuse and shows howwith Gods help, some unconventional therapy, and the support of family and friendsshe was able to break the cycle of abuse, regain her sense of self-worth, and discover what true love is really all about.
