This book addresses the situations of abuse where manipulation isn't easy to identify. To the point, where a person's soul can be damaged so deeply that it could take them a lifetime to overcome what has happened to them. In an abuse relationship, one usurps power over the other while the recipient accepts this as evident of their worth. They become convinced they are lesser humans and worthy of constant correction. Repressed Life is full of extremes, especially when it comes to the use of power.
Repressed on so many levels during live, the victim becomes incapacitated to make their own decisions and think for themselves. In turn, this gives the abuser even more power over them. The soul becomes wounded to the point that they can no longer stand strong on their own beliefs, becoming instead someone that is oppressed and a magnet for additional manipulation which then comes at them from every area of their lives.
What a sad story to watch someone disintegrate and allow themselves to be controlled by someone else. Many, being upstanding citizens in the public eye and in the congregation were never seen as they were on the home front. Myself being taught to respect elders and males, acting as the supportive wife and mother of my children, learned to deny any personal feelings I had or ideas that I might be anything more than just a servant to others.
I had given up on the possibility that a woman could actually be help-mate and partner to her husband. Although I was available to them and often expressed my desire to talk with them about things that bothered them, they saw me as just the wife and mother, a female, and one that had no control over the situation from the beginning. I have felt inadequate in my ability to describe what I believe happened and how to address the issues of my shipwrecked family.
I can see defense mechanisms that we can all learn and practice daily to help us overcome the self-destructive behaviors that have lead us into previous abusive relationships. I can see tools and skills learned that will empower us to stand up against current situations that are not appropriate or balanced, especially when it comes to my daughters. There are issues my sons have that carry the same dispassionate responses to humankind, which was exemplified in their father.
Dig deep and ponder its words and meanings. Think about the case examples and open your heart to what it might feel like to be in similar situations. This book will enlightening your soul and quite possibly could save another soul or yourself from becoming a statistic of such stalking. This is balanced and thoroughly addresses the circumstances and covert situations where abuse happens behind closed doors.
Seeking whom they may devour! I want to make a difference and will be sharing this book with many others. View all 6 comments. Stalking the Soul is an interesting, fairly quick read. The information found in the book focuses on the issue of emotional abuse, the more easily hidden form of control. I found the information to be interesting and helpful. I would recommend the book to anyone who is "wondering if". If a person is in a situation where they are wondering if they are experiencing abuse, they will read this book and find themselves discussed throughout the pages.
Upon seeing this perhaps they will find the courag Stalking the Soul is an interesting, fairly quick read. Upon seeing this perhaps they will find the courage to make a change.
For these individuals the book would easily get four stars. For practitioners in the field the author provides more information about what the victim may be experiencing and less information on the "now what?
Perhaps the best advice is the simple advice, "get out! I also found, at no fault of the author, that some of organization of the book was lacking. Perhaps what I appreciate most about the author's approach is her black and white attitude toward the topic. There is no room for gray when it comes to any form of abuse.
The opening paragraph from the Introduction: "There are, in life, stimulating encounters that encourage us to give our best; there are others that can undermine and ultimately destroy us. One individual can succeed in destroying another by a process of emotional abuse. This animosity sometimes culminates in a virtual murder of the soul.
We have all witnessed emotionally abusive attacks in one form or another; in couples, in families, in the workplace, in social and political life. When faced with this indirect form of violence, our society puts on blinders. We acquiesce to the crime of emotional abuse under the guise of tolerance. I really wanted to like this book. Matter of fact didn't even really finish it.
The author was so pompous. He is French and writing for an American audience, I think, blinded him. I felt emotionally abused by him! View 1 comment. An amazing book, no other book about narcistic behaviour is written like this one. Easy to read with great insights. I'm reading it for the second time now. Your lives go under the microscope and you find yourself getting so frustrated by so much psycho-babble and stereotyped assumptions! Yet, there is also no denying that there are certainly abusive families, parents and relationships that will always be, unfortunately, a part of our society that will take a continous effort to help treat and prevent cycles of behaviors that negatively impact human life.
Hirigoyen's STS is poignantly present and about face to this fact. This happened to me in my job and spread out into the community I live in. Being a "team work" minded person focused on making relationships, jobs, etc work, I don't sit around playing puppet-master.
I thought that was for creepy people in thriller movies. This book scared me and woke me up. It helps to see how someone could see me as a victim in some sick mental, emotional "game". It really hurt and was very scary, but helped me feel better to see that if someone has an agenda of pain and cruel This happened to me in my job and spread out into the community I live in. It really hurt and was very scary, but helped me feel better to see that if someone has an agenda of pain and cruelty all the teamwork and work ethic might not beat them.
I wish I'd ran before I was beaten down too far to have some place to go. My heart goes out to everyone hurting from this type of thing. This book is brilliant. Translated into English from French, we see how barbaric and clueless we really are as a civilization. Hirigoyen articulates the subtle, invisible and dark motivations and details the subsequent actions within relationships born of power, not love.
A very validating and consciously awakening book for any who have been or are in emotionally abusive relationships. If you're not sure, read and find out. This author absolutely understands the dynamic between the narcissistic abuser and victim.
