Amazing enough I thought we had moved to a quiet place where I could actually get some peace and serenity, little did I know that was far from the truth. I have a daughter that does not seem to learn lessons and continues to repeat her actions.

A Woman's Self-Worth......FIGHT FOR IT, DAMN IT!

Self-Worth; this is a word that is so much easier to say and spell then it is to feel!

Why do so many women feel that they have no self-worth? How did they lose it? Is it because of the way the world has portrayed the perfect woman today? Is it because someone took it from them? Is that the void some fill by over eating? Did their partner breach a trust? Does their partner demean them with insults about how they look? Did… Continue

The Power of Fear

The Power of Fear

Where is all of the violence coming from in our world? Is it the powerful exhibiting their strength to the powerless? Is it the strong preying on the weak? Those are parts of the problem, but it’s usually someone trying to prove a point to themselves and they try to force their belief on the person being violated. The main ingredient of violence is usually the fear that is inside of the person being violent.

* When a person is free of fear they don’t feel… Continue

Batterers may be difficult to identify because they can be found in all social and demographic groups. They come from all walks of life, all professions, and all educational backgrounds. The vast majority of men who batter are not mentally ill. Their intent is not to inflict pain, but to cause fear and intimidation in order to gain and maintain power and control over their partners.

Batterers abuse their partners because they choose to do so. Outside circumstances (stress, alcohol,… Continue

Warning Signs, Red Flags, Gut Instincts, Intuition

Warning signs or "red flags" prevail long before the push, shove, grabbing, punch, or assault unless one is simply ambushed. We have to learn and teach our family and friends how to "Detect to Avoid".

I open and welcome discussion to all about Power & Control. Please feel free to share the attached Violence Power and Control wheel - you never know who is hurting behind closed doors (mentally, emotionally or physically) - there are many aspects of abuse. Thank you and God… Continue

Signs that you may be being abused!

Love is not control, domination or abuse in any form! if you are experiencing any of the things listed on this chart, than you need to understand that you are in a dangerous relationship. Even if it is not a physical danger, emotional damage is just as dangerous, and can even be more damaging than physical violence. We have a tendency to say "well at least he is not hitting me or beating me up" so we tend to justify it to ourselves. It is important to know that there is no excuse for abuse… Continue

When they see you go through it how often does it take them in the same direction

When I was younger I had been in an abusive relationship with my childrens father. I really didnt know how it would affect the daughters I had or even my sons.

I know they were never really allowed to see it, and for whatever reason my ex would make them go to their rooms before he would beat me. I am sure he thought he was doing the best for the children, but there was the hearing and it was just as bad, not only that but then also there was the… Continue
