Let's Just Face It

Rakel Colina

If you’ve been struggling in your relationship, there could be more to it than meets the eye. I’m your host Rakel Colina and for years I was in a very toxic relationship, which I didn’t recognize as abusive until the day I left. I am here to help you take a look and recognize their abusive patterns and behaviors, but this is not just about them. Let’s just face it is not only about seeing through their masks, but about helping you see through the issues that could be holding you back from being the best version of you. Ladies, let’s tear down the walls that could be holding you back from moving forward and living your best life, even after abuse. “Facing small fears can lead to big changes” – Rakel Colina

60. Using abuse to create avalanches with Leticia Blaque Rose
Today's episode brings a very special guest, Leticia Blaque. We met online and I just fell in love with her story. We tend to believe that abuse is a certain way and at times we believe that it's only happening to us, but Leticia has a very different story because her story begins when she was very young. The trauma that she experienced within her own family unit took her on a spiral that affected her decisions from a very young age. She talks about how one comment from a family member at a very young age destroyed her belief system, the belief in herself. Taking her on a journey of looking for love and affection in all the wrong places, therefore falling in toxic relationship after toxic relationship. She felt she had to put with the abuse because there was nothing else. She felt she had no alternative route, and her situation and mindset kept her in the same kind of situation. Then one day, it all clicked for her. She was being arrested for something she didn't even know about and that was the moment it all started falling into place for her. Sometimes we have to fall to the bottom before we can recognize where we are and that happened to Leticia as well. Her story will show that you are not alone and you can get out. If Leticia was able to get back up, after all, she went through, anyone can. Using her abuse to create avalanches of positive results and a better life, and how you can do it too!

59. He believes you deserve the abuse
He thinks it's your fault!. You deserve the abuse because you allow it. You keep putting up with the abuse you don't even realize is going on, but because of that, you allow it. Most of the time when you're in the abuse, you don't seem to quite understand what is going on. Therefore are not open to seeing the abuse because you're confused and made to feel like you're going crazy and everything is your fault. Most of these abusive behaviors go unnoticed by us because we have no idea what we're looking for. When you're mentally and psychologically abused, you don't know that you're being abused because this is a strategy for them. It is done in a way that goes gradually and slowly. They don't want to scare you until they have hooked you. If at any given point in your relationship, you feel that your relationship is turning kind of ugly or it just doesn't sit right with you, use the guide that I've set up for you. You can go to rakelcolina.com/toxic By putting up with this abuse, you're just telling them that you're well aware of what is happening, whether you are or not, and that you're okay with this type of treatment. This is why you have to know what abuse actually is. In my book, The Break Away Journal, you can work through these to understand and work through what is going on.
