Hey Ruby, I’ve worked with some women who were in abusive relationships and the act of reframing can be useful. I wanted to know if you want to be listed on my “Resources” page of my Author website? If so, do a short write up of how you want to be listed.

Hi, Ruby Usman.
Thank you for sharing your story and the techniques that you have described.

There are a couple of MUCH easier and yet VERY effective versions of re-framing that do not require any of the ‘confrontational’ aspects of the methods you have described in this article. I will happily share them if you are interested.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
