Abating the anger and moving on

At times we are driven by our emotions, which often times not good. For victims of domestic violence one of the emotions which prevails, is anger. Why? I believe that you put out what has been injected you.

Example, I know that as a survivor of domestic violence, I had to use anger as a motivator to take the next steps in my life, while living in an abusive situation it was anger which allowed me to gather the strength to leave and reclaim peace. Ironic? Years later I find myself on edge and still living defensively, as though I am still being assaulted on a daily basis.

Independence Day...As a Survivor Are you really Free

Happy Independence Day! Today is Friday July 4th 2014. Wow for many of us we are grateful to be alive! My blog today references Freedom as a survivor, many of you like me, have come a long way and we still have more than a mile to go, however what about those of you, who made it out but just can't seem to get past the experience, of the hurt, abuse, pain and the shame?

This blog is for this special audience who continue to blame themselves for the abuse which was sustained, it is during special Holidays where many reflect on abuse, simply because on holidays and special occasions physical violence is triggered by alcohol and drug intoxication.

No Time Like Now

            As the season's are changing I find myself driven to accomplish so much before the end of the year! I can't believe we are less than 110 days out until 2014. If you are like me then you have placed many of your resolutions on the back burner since the beginning of this year. Tisk tisk. How about pulling one of those "to do" items out of your bag and looking at it and dealing with it? More specifically, healing, how many times we have made a commitment to ourselves to exercise, seek counseling, or even to reconcile with a love one, and just have not followed through?

Day 1

 
        All of our journeys begin on a day remarkable to us and only us. Perhaps it began on the day when you were waiting for the bus, the day when someone violated you, the day of your child's birth, the point is that some occurrence triggered youri nternal mind to say "Enough" and then you were off to healing. In healing we all have a Day1. Whether it was the day you walked out or the dayy ou fought back. Day 1 is a liberating day for all of us as it reinforces tha twe are no longer willing to participate in the power/control cycle and all we desire is to exist in a harmonious peace in our own lives.
