“Crazy Love: Why Domestic Violence Victims Don’t Leave with NYT Best-Selling Author and TEDx Speaker, Leslie Morgan Steiner” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #157
In this important episode, Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. have a frank discussion with NYT Best-Selling Author, Leslie Morgan Steiner, about her books, Crazy Love and The Naked Truth which tell the tale of her journey through domestic abuse and divorce to find peace and happiness in her 50s.
Domestic violence is neither an easy, nor a simple topic, but it must be talked about, exposed and the stories shared. It is by shining a light on the subject that current victims find the information and support to leave, and future generations of abuse victims are educated to spot abusers and learn how to avoid or end abuse in their relationships.
Our guest on this episode, Leslie Morgan Steiner, is beautiful, intelligent, Harvard educated AND she is an abuse survivor. With a perfect life and marriage in the eyes of others, Leslie lived a secret life of fear and pain due to physical and emotional abuse. In this episode detailing how she finally escaped the relationship and went on to thrive and succeed, Leslie generously shares critical information and life-saving details on how abuse victims can escape safely and end the cycle of abuse. Everyone needs to be educated on this topic. As Leslie cautions, "domestic violence happens in every community, in every single religion, income level, education level, ABSOLUTELY everywhere." Someone you know, or YOU, could be a victim. Listen NOW!
