...it will take you through the ringer, and back, and usually back again.
That is what's been going on in my life. I have been working through some of worst pain, from loss, that I have ever been through. I apologize to you, that it has affected my writing regularity - please forgive me.
There are many different causes of pain. The abuse perpetrator has experienced pain - it motivates them to hurt others, and perpetuate the cycle of abuse. This is the unhealthy way to handle your pain.
When/if you are able to remove yourself from your abusive situation, you have an immediate choice to be made. Will you perpetuate the abuse, by allowing yourself to:
- return to the abusive situation
- take it out on your children, or those around you
- allow it to keep holding you hostage
Or will you handle it in a healthy way, and grow away from your victimization?
It is not an easy path; but, again, a worthwhile chance to change your life-story.
What will you allow your pain to do to you?
Have a good day, and be safe... #listen #ibelieveyou #doyouhear

*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.
