          How A Woman Who Was Abused By Her Father Can Find Meaning From Her Suffering


          February 22, 2019

          Tatiana says that she suffered physical and sexual abuse from her father for 19 years. The now 38-year-old says she was abused daily, was kept isolated and trapped in their home, and gave birth to three of her father’s children. She says she finally escaped at 25 years old after being stabbed in the chest and nearly dying.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone in an abusive relationship?

          Dr. Phil offers her advice for moving forward and taking back her power.

          “You have a damaged personal truth, and the problem with that is we generate the results in life we think we deserve,” he says. “Your job is to find the meaning. Why did this happen to you? How can you use this in the world? … You are saving thousands of women’s lives as you sit there in this chair right now.”
