New journal entry
Early in the “relationship”, during the Love Bombing stage, he told me I had a lisp. I’ve since learned, this was his way of breaking down my self esteem, spirit and confidence stage. It walks hand in hand with the Love Bombing, a stage that precedes Trauma Bonding. Those I told found it absurd, I did as well. He began to “nit pick” at me, my friends and anyone who showed any amount of care for me. He gave me a list of sentences to read aloud and practice for “unlisping” my voice.
His favorite one:
“This is so sad, Sally said suddenly.”
