Riley & Triangulating Physical Abuser – Domestic Violence, IPV, Narcissist Abuse

Play episode

Riley grew up feeling that she was hard to love. Riley’s ex made her feel like loving her was easy. He was the perfect predator and Riley was sold. Who wouldn’t be in this case? But unfortunately, the physical abuse and rage showed itself early on, and Riley was too trauma bonded to get out.

Brandon talks with Riley about her controlling relationship with a triangulating physical abuser. It’s a story of self love deficit, fixing potential, generational trauma, financial abuse, intimate partner violence, and the struggle to leave for good. Plus they discuss, self worth, coercive control, relationship rights, infidelity, hoovering, grief, idealization, devaluation, single moms, and much more. *** TRIGGER WARNING – We graphically discuss childhood sexual abuse, childhood physical abuse, sexual coercion, sexual assault, and physical abuse in this episode. ***
