Parental Alienation Hurts

Parental Alienation Hurts 0

In Parental Alienation (sometimes called Parent Alienation) one parent intentionally alienates their children from the other parent. It is emotionally abusive not only to the alienated parent--it is also abusive to the children.

What we are talking about here is different from normal estrangement that might occur between children and their parents because of expected stages of development or actual bad acts of the parents they are rejecting. It is a distortion of the intentions, attitudes and behaviors of the alienated parent.

The Catastrophizing and Anxiety Connection 0

When you catastrophize (AKA awfulize), you dwell on a worse-than-worst-case scenario and get overwhelmed by a growing mushroom cloud of painful emotion.

That can ramp up your anxiety even though what you are anxious about isn't really happening. It can stress you out, shut down your ability to think clearly, and immobilize you.

Why do men abuse women?

Why do men abuse women? 0

Why do men verbally, physically, emotionally, financially, psychologically, sexually . . . abuse women who are their partners?

The overarching conscious or subconscious goals of partner abuse are to demean, control, or punish; but why does a particular man treat his partner that way?

Some people think that there is only one reason why a man abuses a woman. They blame it 100% on patriarchy. They think it is always and only about male privilege. But I think that there are many reasons why a particular man might abuse his wife or girlfriend. And I think that patriarchy has less and less to do with it.
