What have I done? Christi grew up in Ohio in a Christian home. We were always involved in Sunday school. I had faith in God, but didn’t have faith in myself. After college, Christi ventured from home to co-anchor in West Virginia. She met Justin at work. Five months later, Christi got a phone call that a close family friend, . had committed suicide. Christi was overwhelmed with feelings of loss that washed over her, including feelings of the loss over her best friend who was murdered four years prior.

“I felt like I was being shredded... one painful, hateful word at a time.” Like millions of other women, CNN’s HLN and truTV’s In Session anchor Christi Paul blamed herself for the emotional abuse heaped on her by her first husband, whose violent, profanity-laced tirades left her feeling as though she had no value, no self-worth, and nowhere to turn for help. Then one day, when Christi was taking refuge in a church parking lot, the verse “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” popped into her head. In that moment she realized she did have someplace to turn after all. Holding fast to her faith, Christi began the arduous process of rebuilding her self-image and regaining control of her life. Now happily remarried and the mother of three girls, Christi feels called to share her story in the hope that other victims of abuse will find the courage to seek the help they desperately need and deserve. Spoken with both candor and poignancy, Love Isn’t Supposed to Hurt chronicles Christi’s personal experience with emotional abuse and shows how—with God’s help, some unconventional therapy, and the support of family and friends—she was able to break the cycle of abuse, regain her sense of self-worth, and discover what true love is all about.

Very emotional book. I felt like I had been put right back in my own situation. Even though they were different, they were so much alike. I like how she hit on the point that people "overlook" verbal abuse. How you almost have to be physically abused for people to condone your reason for leaving. How people stand behind God and say, "You made a vow!" Yes, I did, but that does not mean I can be verbally attacked on a constant basis and live in fear of that verbal abuse. Society, does not understand the severity of emotional/verbal abuse. It really messes with your head and stays with you longer than the argument. The turmoil you go through when you finally realize it's over. How you "do" hurt because you don't want your spouse to hurt. It's such a warped sense of understanding, unless you have actually lived through this. Then you move out, and the peace you feel is so indescribable. The eggshells you no longer walk on, is liberating. You do go through guilt, because you wonder how you allowed yourself to be in this sitation to begin with. How did I not see it? Others did....why didn't I? You do lose friends, but were they really friends? The unexpected people who support you is the biggest surprise. There is still a lot I'm dealing with and working out, but her book really helped heal a lot of places in my heart. I think it is great for someone who is going through this, has gone through it, or knows someone who is/has gone through it. More people need to be aware of how severe verbal abuse is. Words hurt, they stick with us. Yes, we are in charge of how we let those words mess with our head, but most people are generally not that strong at first. Thank you Christi, for sharing your story with me. I'm so glad you finally found happiness and joy!

"... until you acknowledge your contribution to a broken situation, you can't truly start to fix it." ~ Christi Paul

Christi Paul is now a very powerful, successful woman but once years ago she was trapped in an abusive relationship that almost ruined her life. She endured abuse that no one should be forced to accept as normal. As I read this book my brain was screaming: "get out already." But I've read other books about women who have endured a lot more and who were in many bad relationships before they woke up and started to stand up for themselves. Just because a woman is smart does not mean she can't get herself into a terrible situation. For a long time Christi was in denial but eventually she realized she was in danger.

From a psychological viewpoint this book is interesting because it teaches you how a victim thinks. I could not believe that Christi was more concerned about hurting her husband's feelings than she was about her own safety. I also felt a bit angry at the counselor who tried to keep Christi married to a man who did not respect her in any way.

What this book reveals is all the most intimate thoughts a woman thinks when she is a victim of verbal abuse. Part of this book is a spiritual journey and there is a discussion about forgiveness and the positive things that resulted from the conflict in Christi's life. I was amazed at how she was able to find good things that happened to her because of her awful situation. This book reveals a woman's insecurities and her difficult decisions.

I think this would be a good book for all pastors to read. I also think it would give insight to counselors and social workers. I also think it will give a lot of women the courage to leave bad situations. This book explains how there is still hope and you can still find someone to love you after you get out of danger.

I hate to see anyone get a divorce but this book convinced me that verbal abuse is extremely damaging to the psyche. I'm glad the author has found peace and is now happily married.

When I chose to get this e-book, I wasn't really sure that I would want to read it but one evening, feeling a bit "out of sync" with everything, I thought I would read a few pages just to see. Those few pages went to a few more chapters and I couldn't wait to get this read, yet, I didn't want it to end.
This is such a wonderful, yet heart rendering story, a true one, that I feel everyone should read whether they have abuse in their family or not. There is so much involved, loving, hurting, fear, faith, bewilderment and how God can work in someones life. It is not religious, it is fact. Christi Paul went through a terrible time, was full of doubt and trepidation but determined that life had to have something better in store for her. This book speaks to everyone on some level.
I read it twice and now have loaned it out. Having alcoholism in the family and have seen abuse in other families that I love and friends that I felt deserved more, this touched me on every level AND it increased my faith in ways that I never imagined. It is a confirmation to those that suffer this kind of life. This book brings hope, truth, inner strength, many questions, and just putting some of her thoughts into your heart and mind, you will come out on top. Maybe not by the time you finish the book but you will have your feet on the right path. If I could, I would see to it that all my men (yes, men suffer from abuse as well) and women friends had this book. It is my hope that as you read this book you will ponder many of the things Christi Paul talks about. It is good for us to question ourselves, it is good for us to want to make life better for ourselves and help others do the same, and it is an unbelievable release when you find the power of forgiveness.
This woman has my greatest admiration. I am so very thankful that I got this on a whim. It will remain a favorite for a very long time.
