One woman, frightened and sad, can't find how to leave her abusive husband when he threatens and intimidates her. Another woman gleefully contemplates strangling the men who don't make her happy.
He's abusing me. Or am I abusing myself if I walk into a yard that has the sign "THIS DOG BITES"? "If you walk into the yard, the dog bites you," says Katie. "That's his job. If you walk into the yard a second time, you bite you."
Men should make me happy. If this doesn't work, who's left? "Make a list of all the things you want men to give you," Katie suggests, "and give them to yourself."
There are no victims in the world of Byron Katie - only people who are too unconscious to take 100-percent responsibility for themselves. With The Work, there's no statement we make about others that we can't investigate and turn around to ourselves.
Discover in these two dialogues how every difficult turnaround brings amazing gifts - everything we need to change our lives.
