Wonder Why People-Pleasers Attract Emotional Abusers?

Growing up in an emotionally abusive home, or an overly compassionate home, or even and emotionally neglectful home can set you up to accept emotional abuse. It’s not your fault! Maybe, you had a perfectly lovely home, but you were encouraged to put other people’s needs, wants, expectations, and desires ahead of your own. That can happen, and you being so giving gets sadly and badly taken advantage of by a #Hijackal. People pleasers make great targets–and easy pickings–for a Hijackal, an emotional abuser. And, yes, of course, there may well be verbal abuse, financial abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or spiritual abuse, as well. Nasty! Some people are surprised when I say that they are not here to make other people happy. It sounds like a really good thing to do. And, doing things that please others in an equal, reciprocal, and mutual relationship is a very good idea. (That’s the mutuality part!) However, in an inequal, non-reciprocal, and non-mutual relationship, it all goes terribly sideways, and you can be very hurt by it. This episode gives you twenty-five ways that you may have been setup to appeal to an emotionally abusive person, a #Hijackal. I invite you to think about each one because each one you change will improve the quality of your life. It is unlikely to improve the quality of your relationship with a Hijackal, though. They want you to remain as you were, taking what they dish out. But, no! Time for a change. When you see these 25 things, you can change them, and that is a very good thing. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:Insights into the effects of your childhood on your current relationshipsWhy being overly compassionate plays into a Hijackal’s hands25 ways that people pleasing ways set you up to accept emotional abuseWhy it’s important to see these 25 ways so that you can change them nowHow to undertake Escaping the Hijackal Trap When you’re ready to reclaim your personal power and rebuild your life in a healthier way, I’m here to help.

Feeling Stuck & Second-Guessing Yourself?

Yes, you are wise to be self-reflective, asking yourself “What is my part in the relationship difficulties?” #Hijackals and other toxic people want you to taking responsibility for the whole relationship. They are happy to tell you that everything is your fault. You know that. In this episode, I’m addressing the three BIG questions I am asked so frequently when someone gets to the point of considering leaving, or has recently left a toxic relationship. These three questions cause them to further second-guess themselves from within. Sure, ask those three questions and answer them honestly…ONCE. Then, take action. #Hijackals and those with narcissistic tendencies and traits know they can baffle you with sweet talk, double talk, or straight out lies. They know. Don’t believe them! Yes, it’s easier said than done, I know. But, don’t believe them. They are behaving from self-interest alone. Then, don’t start feeding yourself the doubts the Hijackal planted within you. That’s their thing: keep you in chaos and confusion, always giving them the benefit of the doubt. It is not healthy, and don’t buy it. So, these three big questions come up. Hopefully, after you listen to this episode, you’ll be done with those and ready to move forward with a clearer picture of where you’re going, what you want, and what you don’t. Listen in. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:Why being self-reflective is a good first strategyWhy it’s important to get things in perspective for yourselfDon’t make excuses for a Hijackal and keep yourself stuckThe three questions that keep you stuck…or, make you consider going backHow, once you’ve thoroughly explored these three questions, you’ll never have to answer them againYou want to be a good person, a fair person, in your relationship. Usually, if you’re with a Hijackal, you’ll be doing most of the giving, and the Hijackal will happily take, take, take. That’s best clearly seen and stopped. Then, be ready to remind yourself of the answers so you don’t have to think it through again. I wish you well. I’m always here to help.Big hugs!RhobertaWant clarity, insights, strategies, and support from me?

MEN: How to Revive a Dormant Sex Life After You've Killed the Connection

Men, would you like to know what to say when your female partner is really angry? The answer–and many more–are in this episode with GS Youngblood, author of The Masculine in Relationship. He says, “There are so many couples in pain in the world. The man feeling that his partner criticizes and belittles him, and is not interested in sex. The woman dying for more emotional connection, and to feel much more power, leadership, and clarity from her man.” Oh, yes, you can bet I was champing at the bit with questions! Questions about gender equality, “leadership,” and misogyny, for starts! And, yes, I challenged so much because I read the book and all kinds of things popped up to discuss: possessiveness, a “caveman mentality, and so much more. Empathy which is often so lacking in toxic relationships became a big topic, going from GS’s definition to mine and finding the intersections. Did we end up on the same page? Listen for that, for sure! What about men jumping to solutions without listening to their partners? (Calm down. We’re talking about men’s things in this episode…lol.) I asked GS why he talks so much as “masculine leadership.” Does he balance that with feminine leadership? Are they the same, or vastly different? I think your thoughts will be stimulated by this conversation.HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:When masculinity is toxicMistakes you might be making (or experiencing)How GS Youngblood shifted his thinking and expectations to improve relationshipsWhat makes relationships go sidewaysThe place of empathy and what it means and looks like in relationshipWhat emotional oxygen is Agree? Disagree? Learn something? It’s all good. Be good to yourself.RhobertaGUEST: GS YOUNGBLOODGS Youngblood is the author of “The Masculine in Relationship”. He coaches men in relationships on how to live, love, and lead from their Masculine core. He specializes in “nice guys” who are with strong women. His teachings combine deep embodiment work with the framework of the Masculine blueprint from his book. Learn more at gsyoungblood.com.Reception to the book has been phenomenal. Both from men (“You just described my married life to perfection…” and “This is the best book I’ve EVER read on masculinity in a relationship”) and women (“I just picked up your book off my coffee table that my husband bought and it’s like you’ve been listening to me talk for the last few years! Insane how much you get it.”)His writings are filtered through the laboratory of his and his clients’ real-world, long term relationships (including the successes and spectacular failures) to see what actually works and what doesn’t. Through this lens of Masculine leadership, he also pulls in principles from a variety of fields: psychology, martial arts, tango, meditation, and BDSM.FREE GIFT FROM GS YOUNGBLOOD: Not at this timeCONTACT INFO FOR GS YOUNGBLOOD :Website: www.GSYoungblood.comPodcasts:LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/hassanatettehFacebookwww.facebook.com/gsyoungblood1Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/gsyoungbloodmirTwitter:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd5aEX9NV-4DzBNd8y_IvWw——————————————————————————————————————————–Want clarity, insights, strategies, and support from me, Dr. Rhoberta Shaler? We can talk: Introductory session for new clients, $97CONNECT WITH DR.

Future Faking

All those promises! All those dreams! Was it future faking? That’s a very common way that #Hijackals keep you engaged in the relationship. Learn how it works…and, what really doesn’t work about it. You need to see this clearly, or you’ll be hooked on hope! All you ever wanted and more…one day. That’s the promise of future faking: when a Hijackal promises or alludes to giving you something you want in the future to get what they want in the present. And, so much more. A Hijackal makes big moves early on in the relationship, feigning great interest in knowing you. Sorry. It’s not because they’re so interested in who you are: it’s they’re so interested in what they can get from you. Sad. And, this is why they #futurefake! To engage you in the dream! Lean in and listen to all the ways narcissists use this ploy to get what they want. You’ll want to recognize each one for what it is. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:How #futurefaking hooks you into staying in an abusive relationshipWhy it can become a pattern that you really don’t see How F.O.M.O. plays into the #futurefaking dynamicsParents and future faking you grew up withRed flags of future faking during dating. BIG! How narcissists and other Hijackals paint beautiful pictures of the futureWhy you need to believe the patterns and change your directionSo disappointing! Being with a #Hijackal is a roller coaster that has great, occasional highs but goes mostly downhill. Future faking is a part of this that can keep you staying when you need to be going.

Renowned Thoracic Surgeon Shares How Doctors Can Increase Empathy & Compassion

Why is this episode important on a show about toxic relationships? Because your doctor–and other healers–need to be empathetic, aware, interested, listening, and compassionate. Some are wonderful. Others, not so much. You need to find one that cares about all of you, not just the numbers, graphs, and medications. In your toxic relationship, have you ever been seriously ill or injured? What kind of care did you get at home? That’s a big moment, isn’t it, when you realize that the toxic person can’t be bothered with you, or take you seriously? How does your doctor behave? Dr. Hassan Tetteh had early personal experiences with trauma, and the impact on him directed his life’s work. A Near Death Experience changed so much for him. Dedicated to The Art of Human Care™ (also the name of his book), Dr. Tetteh helps you see what to look for in a doctor, too. In a toxic relationships–past or present, there is often trauma from emotional abuse. You NEED your doctor to see, know, and believe what is happening to you. Emotional abuse takes a toll on your body as I discussed with Dr. Elizabeth Hughes in episode 189. Dr. Tetteh explains why you need to truly feel cared for when you need medical attention. Although he offers his acronym, L.E.A.R.N, for healers, it’s a very good approach for all of us in our relationships. Enjoy this…even if it sounds a little off our usual topics. It’s valuable! HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:How an earlier life experiences change Dr. Tetteh’s understanding of careWhy it often seems that doctors are more interested in time than patientsHear his Human Care TheoryWhat’s up with toxic people’s response when you’re ill Why you need to find an empathetic, compassionate doctor OK, so I hope you now recognize why I invited Dr. Tetteh to Save Your Sanity. Don’t be re-wounded by a doctor who doesn’t really see or hear you. Your doctor needs to be a safe place to go, whether that is your medical doctor, alternative healthy professional, or therapist. Be good to yourself.RhobertaGUEST: HASSAN TETTEH, MDDr. Hassan A.

7 Unhealthy Patterns You Learn Growing Up in a Narcissistic Family

You may not even know you picked up all this from narcissistic family dynamics in your life. When you hear these things, you may find the key to unlocking relationship difficulties you’ve had in your adult life. Definitely worth listening to! We take SO much in as young children, even before we have any language skills at all! We come to know if we’re wanted, loved, appreciated, welcomed, and heard before we ever understand a word anyone says to us. That impacts our whole life…unless we recognize what slipped under our radar in our first seven years of life! If there was a parent or other authority figure in your family who had narcissistic tendencies, you’ll be recognizing these thing I talk about. It’s all you knew then, but now you know more. You can do things differently! Don’t be hard on yourself! You couldn’t possibly know what your early environment was putting in your mind, and how it was establishing your sense of who you were within you. That’s why it’s important to think about these things today. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:How what happens to you in your first seven years of life can impact your adult life7 patterns of behavior a narcissistic family–with even just one narcissistic person–will demonstrateWhy it’s important to look into your early home life for things that could be negatively impacting your life nowWhy I think that telling your child to stop crying or “I’ll give you something to cry about” is narcissisticHow having a narcissistic parent affects your ability to ask for what you need and want in lifeHow recognizing these early patterns can help you make better decisions today that make you happier Information and insights into what happened in your emotional self early in life can shift your perception of yourself.

GASLIGHTING: Sneaky Emotional Abuse

Understanding the many faces of gaslighting helps you see it coming. Then, seeing it for what it is, you can discount it, reject and deny it. In this episode, I help you see ten faces of gaslighting that can help you recognize it for what it is: emotional abuse. The actual definition of gaslighting I like from www.urbandictionary.com is: “an increasing frequency of systematically withholding factual information from, and/or providing false information to, the victim – having the gradual effect of making them anxious, confused, and less able to trust their own memory and perception”It has so many faces, some that you might not immediately think of as gaslighting…until now. I often think of gaslighting as times when someone wants to define your reality for you, rather than trusting you and your senses. It’s nasty, as well as sneaky. It’s definite intention is to undermine your confidence in yourself in every way. Too often, it’s a successful ploy! ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:Why gaslighting is a huge issue in eroding self-confidence10 ways gaslighting shows up and how to recognize themExamples of gaslightingWhy it is essential to recognize the different ways a #Hijackal will attempt to gaslight youHopefully, by the time you hear all ten, you’ll say “No More!” A person who thinks they can tell you what you think, feel, need, want, prefer, or remember is a person to watch out for. Beware, though, because they wear you down, you may have a tendency to believe them. Don’t! They are using and abusing you, and you deserve to be treated with respect, care, love, and honesty.

How Toxic Relationships Can Wear Down Your Body & Ruin Your Health – Guest: Dr. Elizabeth Huges

You may think that you’re experiencing the natural wear and tear on your health. But, if you’re in a toxic relationship, it is making things so much worse! Learn about the most likely ways your body and its immune system can respond to toxic relationships with narcissistic people, or antisocial people. Talk about wear and tear!!! Two things that cause physical health issues (among many) start with emotional abuse: stress and isolation. Both of those are present in most relationships with Hijackals, right? Constant stress and the pressure to not talk about difficulties with others outside the relationship. Very common. In this episode, I share some research findings from Dr. Gabor Mate that relate to this where he said, “The very same brain centers that interpret and feel physical pain also become activates during experiences of emotional rejection.” Sound familiar? This can be terribly enhanced if, perchance, you had a narcissistic mother–a Hijackal mother–and then went on to be in a relationship with another Hijackal. It takes such a toll on you!

This event caused Dr. Hughes to question everything she had been taught about health and illness, and to look for better answers for “incurable” conditions.Her quest lead her to investigate ancient spiritual traditions, non-western systems of health and healing, placebo research, and the emerging sciences of epigenetics and psychoneuroimmunology. In the process, she became a registered yoga teacher, a certified health coach, and a practitioner of several energy medicine modalities.Dr. Hughes has developed a revolutionary approach to health based on establishing trust in the human body. Dr. Hughes believes that once each person has cultivated a deep and abiding trust in the power of the human body, our experience of health and illness will change for the better forever.FREE GIFT FROM ELIZABETH:The Stress Antidote GuideTheStressAntidote.comCONTACT INFO FOR ELIZABETH HUGHES:Website: ElizabethHughesMD.comPodcasts:LinkedIn: @ElizabethHughesMDFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/elizabethhughesmdInstagram: @Twitter:  https://twitter.com/jEHughesMDYouTube: ——————————————————————————————————————————–Want clarity, insights, strategies, and support from me, Dr. Rhoberta Shaler? We can talk: Introductory session for new clients, $97CONNECT WITH DR.

How to Finally Believe A Hijackal Doesn't Love You

You want to believe that a Hijackal–a toxic, difficult, perhaps narcissistic person–love you. You SO want to believe it. They don’t have much love to give and here’s 16 ways to recognize that they aren’t giving it to you. An eye-opener! People who love you listen to you. They want to listen to you. And, you want to listen to them. You’re interested in each other. Not so with a #Hijackal. The Hijackal is interested in themselves and want you to be interested in them, too. Sure, in the beginning, it’s different. That’s how they hook you as I spoke about in the last episode, How Hijackals Hook You Into Toxic Relationships. You know from listening to the episode on the 3 MUST-HAVES in a Healthy Adult Relationship that equality is a must. Do you believe you have that in your relationship with a Hijackal? I’ll be not. You may want to bring up a couple of instances when there seemed to be equality, but that’s part of the problem. There’s supposed to be equality all the time. There’s an example of the love that’s missing in a toxic relationship: love. Everything is transactional with a toxic person, a person with narcissistic tendencies, and those with anti-social tendencies as well. They don’t really have love to give you, but they will appear to to have you give them what they want: a transaction. I know, it’s not great to hear that straightforwardly, but it’s absolutely important to recognize it. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:The transactional nature of toxic relationships16 ways that love relationships differ from toxic relationshipsWhy you must not continue to believe that you are loved and make excuses for poor behaviorMy definition of emotional abuse, and why you are best to keep it in mindClear ways to recognize real love to compare and contrast with what a Hijackal offers you You SO want to believe that a Hijackal loves you, I know. Sometimes, it really seems that they do, but only when it serves their purposes and gets them what they want. Sad, and unfortunately, true. Hard to hear, but time to recognize it.

How Hijackals Hook You Into Toxic Relationships

Hijackals create toxic relationships, and it’s important to see the patterns, traits, cycles, and behaviors clearly. That’s not easy, but it is necessary. If you’ve been with a Hijackal or other toxic person for long, you may feel as though you suffer from brain fog. You can’t think straight and you’re too exhausted to do so anyway. Gain perspective about your situation and best next steps to consider in this episode. Hijackals are those relentlessly difficult, toxic people who seem so perfect for you in the beginning, and eventually fade into mean, thoughtless, self-centered ones later in the relationship. That later can be two days after you marry or move in, or even fade slowly over a couple of years. But, fade it will. Then, what do you do.By the time you’ve been with a Hijackal for awhile, you may be exhausted from the constant put-downs, from being torn down and worn down. Hijackal count on that. You have to find your legs and stand up for yourself in very specific, non-confrontational ways. One of those ways is my Personal Weather Report. In the episode, I mentioned some videos I’ve made on it on my YouTube channel. While you’re watching these, be sure to subscribe and click the Bell so that you’ll know each time I add a video. Here’s the ones on the Personal Weather Report: https://studio.youtube.com/video/qD1pNMujj0k/edithttps://studio.youtube.com/video/mFCZohqaFMM/edithttps://studio.youtube.com/video/0p-K2vKfRhA/editYou will also find all the details of how to give and receive a Personal Weather Report in my book, Kaizen for Couples. ?HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY’S EPISODE:How a Hijackal hooks youWhy Hijackals are in a rush to “get” youKnowing how to recognize the Hijackal patterns, traits, cycles, and behaviorsThe essential step of stopping enabling the Hijackal to behave badlyMy definition of assertiveness and why it’s effectivePracticing the PWRBeing with a Hijackal in a supposedly romantic relationship can be huge disappointment on many levels.
