Why Are You Here? (Connie J...)
(Original posting at www.ozerministriesinc.com 020821)
Does your presence make a difference? Do you feel like you belong where you are?
Did you know that if you're not seeking to make yourself a priority, and let what YOU need matter, that you cannot effectively help anyone else?
Sure, you can go through the motions, and you and those around you will survive - but are y'all thriving? Are you living your life, or just getting through it?
People often think, especially in Domestic Violence situations, that if they can do all the right things, and put their needs waaaay on the back burner, that they will cause a change in their family dynamics; and it will cause the DV to stop. Unfortunately, unless the abuser wants to make changes, you ignoring what you need will not really change anything.
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE www.ozerministriesinc.com #EtSoV #walkinTHEIRshoes
*October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this, no matter what month it is, to help get the word out. The Victim has to make the choice - but, "What If..." they read something you sent them, that makes the difference? #walkinTHEIRshoes
*I will be sharing a "What If..." post on the first Monday, of every month. I would love to share YOUR "what ifs". Please send your "What If..." ideas to Connie J... - email@example.com; or through Ozer, at the website or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
