Are You In an Abusive Relationship?

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt

There are many levels of abuse. When people think of abusive relationships they often associate them with some kind of physical abuse. Although physical abuse is one of the worst forms of an abusive relationship, abuse does not have to by physical, it comes in many disguises.

The different types of abusive relationships range from emotional, verbal, mental, sexual and physical or any combination of these. If you find yourself in an abusive relationship and you are trying to figure a way to get out, you need to proceed very carefully.

Some of the warning signs are:

* They blame you for everything, especially their anger or jealousy

* They are violent or they threaten you

* They control where you go, who you see and when

* They isolate you from all or most activities and friends

* They have bouts of uncontrollable emotional outbreaks

* They demean you, humiliate you, insult you, or embarrass you

* They make you feel insignificant and scared

* They force you to do things sexually

* They make you feel terrible about yourself

* You cause all the problems and they cause none of them

* And on and on

Nothing makes me more angry and sad than a cold and judgemental person

Nothing makes me more angry and sad than a cold and judgemental person. Yes Mike Robbins is quite right in many aspects of his article  The Power of Empathy.

Nothing makes me more angry and sad than a cold and judgemental person.

Yes Mike Robbins is quite right in many aspects of his article  The Power of Empathy  and I have to say, and have mentioned to people before, that a cold and judgemental person is such a sad thing to see or be.

I wish people could learn to be more understanding. Nothing makes me more angry and sad than a cold and judgemental person.

We all have judgemental prejudices. We all think thoughts that separate us from one another. We may not necessarily agree with everyone, that would be very impossible, but we can at least try to understand why people do something or act in a certain way. We can learn a lot that way…

This may or may not change anything, but I have always felt bad in the past when I have judged people… WE really should do better…. We should learn not to judge . Life is so much more enriching the more people you know and there really are some wonderful people out there once you let go, and you will find out the more diverse they are.

I challenge people now to try to make yourself a better person. You may not always agree with others, but is it really so hard to see through someone else’s eyes and see the other side of the coin ? Trust me, you’ll be happier if you do.

Understanding is great patience, and great patience is gold within us……!! Its very important for your children to learn too if you have them..

Try it for you, do it for them, lets help make the world a better place .

Domestic Violence, Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde

domestic-violenceDr Jekyll and Mr Hyde a two in one package, that springs to mind every time I hear of another case of domestic violence. How many men/women can relate to this personality disorder in their partner?

There are no excuses for the people who inflict pain on another human being. It was a deadly potion concocted by the famous Dr Jekyll that led to the actions of the notorious Mr Hyde where innocent victims perished. For those victims there were no choices whether they lived or died all because they were unaware of what was around the corner.

You the victim of domestic violence have no corners to turn, at least you know when to expect the next punch or kick in the head. How much longer will you go on making excuses for the broken bones and bruises? How long before permanent damage is done, if not already. Believe me when I say the situation can only get worse unless you act now and get help.

A Real Man Never Hits A Woman!

Stop Violence Against WomenThose of you that use the social networking site Facebook will know that there is the ability within Facebook to show and give your support to worthwhile causes. One of the causes I personally support is Stop Violence Against Women. I have just today received a bulletin from them that contained a prayer written by one of its supporters. I am going to re-publish it below for you to read. I am also providing a link below to the article and the causes page for your reference should you wish to visit their pages and maybe join, donate or show your support in some way. I have also listed links to Domestic Violence sites as a reference point for those who may wish to find out more  or be in need of support themselves.

My wish for the New Year by William Collett

My wish is that all of us read this out loud, together (3,431,369+ members) our voices will make a change and this is the start…

As we strive to connect with our higher soul vibration. We are then open to all possibilities – I am one with the light, I am light.
Then I am the answers to the questions within me. The answer I have received is we are all one, past, present and future. All thoughts and ideas are available to us. We are one….
Great God we give you thanks that you call us out of silence and into the light to name hidden and domestic violence.
Today we pray for all those women and men despite suffering from violence, continue to care for family and children, to grow and prepare food, carry water, earn a living and offer support to others.
We pray for women who are trafficked as domestic or sex workers; for women who are raped and do not know how to find words to name their pain or a way into the future.
We pray for transformation of our societies which often find it easier to judge the victims of violence than to solve the problems of injustice
We pray that our voices may be heard and taken into account in all peace and reconciliation work.
We pray for a transformation in the violent way many men act towards and think about women.
We pray for right and just relations between women and men that together we may transform and overcome violence in all its forms and learn to celebrate our diversity and interdependence.
We look forward to the age of peace, when violence is banished, both women and
men are able to love and to be loved, and the work and wealth of our world is justly shared.
This is my New Years prayer/wish for all of us-
I’m a guy, my name is William Collett and I’m a real man!
