The Betrayed, The Addicted, The Expert


Sep 27, 2021

"I loved the Podcast I listened to on Boundaries. So much great info, tools and principles discussed. I appreciated the podcast because of the difficulty I had with a group my wife got involved in that did a lot of the things you talked about and then some. I'm willing to bet they've destroyed more families that they have actually helped. They broke so much of my own trust and actually caused me a lot of trauma. I had to do multiple therapy sessions of EMDR to get over that. My wife (soon to be ex) is stuck in her victimhood and refuses to move on. It took me a long time to realize that my wife was the last bad habit I had to kick to get into Recovery. I have found new love and have the connection I have always wanted using the tools and principles I have found here. 

My question is along the lines of my wife retaining her victim status and not moving forward, especially due to the women’s group she is with. Because of that I have been cut off from my son. I have seen or talked to him in 3 months now. I’m trying to go through the legal system and enforce my parental rights but it takes so long and my child is almost 18. So perhaps my question is how do you deal and go through the process of parental alienation? I have literally had to grieve the loss of my son due to my wife’s inability to cope with her emotions and continue to emotionally abuse and manipulate my child."
