If you need more help with how to actually step up and deal with them, I would turn to "Boundaries", "The Law of Happiness" and "Safe People". Those actually deal with the core issues and outline in detail how you can take steps to protect your self mentally and emotionally.
** These Authors make it perfectly clear that that is BIBLICAL to not allow bad treatment go unaddressed.... pointing out that the Bibles says "Setting Limits Will Save Lives".
