Abuse in any form robs a person of their well-being
Psychological/ Emotional Abuse
Psychological/ Emotional abuse is considered the number one worst kind of abuse.
Not many people are aware of this. Most think of abuse as being physical.. and that is where the trap lies. You think if he/ she didn’t hit you then it isn’t abuse. Think again. Emotional abuse causes invisible wounds, but real wounds to your mind, your personality and your spirit. You can loose your potential and your self esteem.
Physical wounds can heal, these wounds take much longer.
Do not let fear consume you.
You are stronger than that.
What you fear is the past not your future.
It’s not relevant today.
It will be different, it will be amazing, it will be all your dreams
Throw off the blanket that hides your light
For you are safe
You are protected from attack
For you are a child of God
Be who you are
Who you are meant to be
I’m feeling a pull today.
The pull is demanding action from me.
I can’t hear anything – it’s just a knowing.
Damn – it’s time isn’t it.
I had hoped it was all a dream.
I want to sleep, hide, run, keep warm, avoid.
For ten years I have done just that.
Trying to hold onto my life, my family, my reality.
Was what I saw real?
I remember now, I accepted something..
Damn – what a fool!
I don’t want this.. not little old me.
I have lost everything I love trying to hold on, keep safe, control my life.
I have lost people’s respect trying to play small.
I tried hard to make my life ‘normal’.
I wanted normal.
I am reluctant.
I am scared.
But I’ve run out of choices.
It must be big to have paralyzed me for ten years.
It’s all my dreams and fears combined.
I know I can do some good
I guess it’s time
I guess I’m ready
I guess I’m brave
I guess I’m strong
I know I’m not alone.
There are others feeling the same way.
I hope I find them soon
Because I need you,
I think we need each other.
