Abusive relationships often put people down and create a cycle of negative self-talk and low self-esteem. How do you combat that negativity? In episode 9 of Hope Beyond Abuse, Lisa interviews Elise from Style and Sensibility.

They discuss why self-care is not only important, but essential and how it can help abused people gain perspective and heal. Elise sees style as an act of self-care. Elise provides practical style tips for those who are not feeling their best and simple ways to combat negative self-talk with little things.
