The Holidays Are Upon Us...
The Holiday season can be the "most terrifying time of the year" for those living in a Domestic Violence situation.
Extended families want "happy" get-togethers - while Victims just want a safe place.
Children want all the latest toys and fashion - while Victims just want to have their essential needs met.
The Holidays are the most charitable time of the year - but Victims are so worn out, it's sometimes hard to get through a day without another upset, and they have less and less of themselves to give.
Pay attention, in your celebrations, to those that just have "that look". You've seen it before; but in the desire to have such a "perfect Holiday Season", many tend to overlook it.
What can YOU do? How can you help? Is it YOU?
Have a good day, and be safe... #listen #ibelieveyou #doyouhear
*October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this post, 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, and it just "clicks"?
*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... - firstname.lastname@example.org; or through Ozer, at the website or email, email@example.com.
