So here this man stands before you (or maybe someone you know) breathing like he is about to expel fire from his nose with eyes almost demonic like. He shouts you down, threatens, or even calls you a name or two. The children either witness the commotion or in the next room they are oblivious to what is happening. Something on the inside arises in you and every negative emotion that you had for your own father comes flowing like a river.
In the book by Nicholl McGuire, author of When Mothers Cry, Laboring to Love an Abusive Mate and other books, she has created a thought-provoking guide to getting free from the emotional ties that bind daughters and sons to controlling fathers, emotionally unavailable Dads, and others.
When one repeatedly argues with his or her mate in ways that trigger negative childhood memories, something happens during various stages of life that reminds us, "You have issues." In Nicholl's work, the challenges are how we deal or don't deal with difficult fathers and other toxic men in our lives and how to break free emotionally, spiritually and more. So when you are ready to sever toxic ties, Nicholl's book, Say Goodbye to Dad is here to help.
