Not Intended to be Used... (Connie J...)
- emotional needs
- being true to yourself
- spiritual beliefs
...and the list goes on. Have you ever been manipulated by any of these?
I grew up hearing about the control certain other countries have over their citizens. I didn't realize it was going on in my own home, until I was much older.
I didn't know exactly what was wrong; but I always felt left out of some "inside joke" by many of my parent's "friends". I know, now, Domestic Violence just wasn't discussed back then. But I still feel a sense of anger for those that knew, and didn't help me, as a child.
My Grandma, and my childhood best friend's family are NOT a part of that. They were ALWAYS there for me; and I felt welcomed there any time I needed to be away from my house.
By the way, any anger I feel is now utilized as a tool to battle Domestic Violence, whenever I can. "The pen IS mightier than the sword." (Edward Bulwer-Lytton - 1839)

*I share a "What If..." post on the first Monday, of every month, and I would love the opportunity 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.
