• Shame: What will people think? OR I don’t want to be laughed at OR No one will believe me.

• Self worth: I probably deserved it.

• Denial: I can handle it, it’s not that bad OR All I have to do is leave the house until she cools down OR It’s PMS; the kids are giving her a hard time.

• Reluctance to give up the good: She is a really creative, or loving, or wonderful person most of the time OR She didn’t mean it.

• Inertia: It’s too hard to do anything about it OR I’m not ready to change my life OR I’ll deal with it later
