...your child happens to mention about his home-life, when they spend the night at their friend's?

...the friend's family already knows; and that is why your child is always welcome there?

...your child tells you they always feel like they're left out of an "inside joke", when they mention to someone about how proud they are of their parent, and the close relationship they have with them?

...your child would rather be ANYWHERE but home?

...your child comes home, and tells you they were talking about Domestic Violence in school; and asks if you know any Victims?

...a close friend mentions October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month; and wonders aloud whether she knows any Victims?

...it IS you?

During this month of Domestic Violence Awareness, I ask you to take a look at the people around you, and your own life, and see of there are signs of Domestic Violence,  anywhere. Then I implore you to ask yourself if there is ANYTHING you can do to make a difference in someone's life, if you see it.

Have a good day, and be safe... #beaware #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... - beamererin@yahoo.com; or through Ozer, at the website or email, ozerministries@att.net.

Do you know anyone that shies away from conversations that involve personal questions/comments, like:
- "I always see you alone, in public. I thought you were married."
- "Your boyfriend/girlfriend/partner takes such good care of you."
- "I just LOVE the attention your partner pays to detail...".
...and you can fill-in the comments for days.

Now, when the one being told this can glow, and gush, you just KNOW you're on the mark. However, it's often, the ones that back-peddle away from any "couple talk", whatsoever, that you should pay closer attention. Do they EVER show up to any public/family event alone? Or, if their significant other DOES come, do they look comfortable with them being there? Does the s.o. often want to leave early? Can you cut the tension with a knife?

These may be the ones that aren't talking, and need just ONE person to ask if everything is ok, or do they need to talk, etc.  Follow that little voice telling you something may not be ok with them, and invite them for coffee. It could save a life, you never know!!!

With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, pay EXTRA attention to those around you that may NOT be talking.

Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE ***www.ozerministriesinc.com*** #walkinTHEIRshoes #EtSoV

...every time you have fallen asleep, your significant other has awakened you, and proceeded to yell at you for, yet, another "perceived slight"...and you have to be up early, for work...

...you work very hard to clean every nook and cranny of the kitchen/bathroom; yet your significant other has, again, found the drain you neglected to clean out, when you were finished...

...you are all ready to attend a family event, and your s.o. has, again, picked a fight with you, and says, "I don't want to go. You're all upset, now!!! Your family ALREADY hates me!!!"...

...your day runs crazy, the kids have been off the chain; and you fear the storm when your s.o. arrives home and dinner isn't ready, yet...

...you expect your s.o. home at a certain time. Three hours later, they arrive. When you simply ask, "Where were you?", they begin yelling at you. When you attempt to stand in front of the door, and beg them not to leave; they push you out of the way, and go, anyway. You have their car keys, so they walk the five miles to their place of employment. Three hours later, they call you to pick them up. You go, to avoid ANOTHER fight...and you never DO get an explanation...

These are small glimpses into the lives of someone living in Domestic Violence. It is NOT all hitting, etc. Much of it is emotional manipulation.

I wrote the the first four as fiction, taken from real-life stories. The fifth one, was on-repeat for most of my childhood; yet it took me many years to realize I was raised in Domestic Violence...

As our world is shifting, today, some people are trying to adapt from a basically sedentary life at home.

Those whose lives shifted into "overdrive" when the pandemic hit, are trying to level out, and keep shaking their heads at the daily changes.

Either situation can get your brain running amuck.

However, if you live in a Domestic Violence situation, this can multiply the stress level by millions; because you were in "Overdrive" BEFORE the Pandemic hit.

Just remember, nobody in the world, today, is immune to the ways our daily lives can ravage us. Try to take even a few moments (in the bathroom, if necessary), every day for you. Doing whatever you can to take care of yourself CAN make a difference in even the most dire of situations.

Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE ***www.ozerministriesinc.com*** #walkinTHEIRshoes #EtSoV
