 BEGIN HEALING THE SHAME WITHIN

What happens when we silence or shame the victim of abuse is twofold and has compound effects.


Impact on the abuser:

*Empowers the abuser *Allows the abuser to continue the abuse *Creates an environment that encourages abuse *Puts others in jeopardy of being victimized and abused *Releases the abuser of their accountability for their own actions


Impact on the victim:

*Increases victims fear of speaking out *Isolates the victim and increases their sense of shame *Validates their feelings of being unseen/heard *Jeopardizes the victim *Keeps the victim stuck in uncertainty and insecurity *Builds the belief the victim is at fault or unworthy *Increases their sense of distrust of others from your lack of acknowledgment and support


My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

Love does NOT hurt or cause you to constantly question your own sanity. 

But ABUSE & MANIPULATION does.

Know the difference.

My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

You are lovable as is right now. This is exactly what unconditional love is. 
Not after you accomplish something. As is meaning along WITH your imperfections. 
The whole package is our strengths and weaknesses combined. 
Not one of us is perfect, and that is okay, so relax. 
Start embracing this truth.

You are lovable as is, period

Green Leaf

Their emotional immaturity is their issue along with their responsibility.

Their inability to control their temper and behavior is their issue and also their responsibility.


Their mistreatment & abuse of you is under THEIR control: it was THEIR choice.

It is up to them to manage their own behavior and actions.


Do you see a pattern here? It is not about you.

Remember they alone are responsible, period. Let's be clear. It's a pretty simple concept.

My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

Silencing and shaming the victim only empowers the abuser. Allowing the abuser free reign to continue the cycle of abuse. This emboldens them and creates an environment to where they can seek out and harm more victims.

BEGIN HEALING THE SHAME WITHIN

My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

Do NOT count on the abuser to stop or change their ways by discontinuing the abuse. 
That mindset will keep you in a living hell. 
As they gain and benefit from their actions at YOUR expense. 
Your pain is their power. 
It's when you decide to remove yourself from the equation, then and only then, will that cycle of abuse END for you.

When someone who was abused loses a loved one that was their strength, safe place, and emotional support it shakes their whole foundation to the core.

GRACE

BEGIN HEALING THE SHAME WITHIN

Ah yes, the benefits of grace. Why did I fall in love with grace? Because my inner critic can be a harsh cold-hearted B!t(h.

Tearing me apart for every single imperfection.

I needed a reprieve, That's why.

You got to feel all the feels if you want to fully heal your wounds.

My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

Begin Healing the Shame Within

Do not let your ego and pride get in the way of love.  If you do that often enough that unconditional love someone has for you may just wither away. Especially if it is NOT equally given.


As no one is required to love you, especially if you withhold love or do not reciprocate it.  Or worse mistreat them in any manner.

Remember unconditional love is a gift and a choice they provide to you out of their kindness and good nature.

And if loving you causes that person to have to sacrific their own dignity and self- love in order to keep the relationship do not be surprised if they reach a breaking point and choose to walk away. 

My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

Pay attention to those people who are consistently careless or crass with your feelings.  It shows you exactly where you stand with them.  
Just because you value them, does not mean they value or respect you. 
Examine whom you place in your 1st slot of life. 
No longer allow it to be anyone who does not reciprocate your kindness and compassion.

                I Will Love Myself


I will love myself here, I will love myself there, I will love myself EVERYWHERE!


Mistakes and all, I will stand tall.
With my head held high, I kiss my fears and worries goodbye.


I am open to being empowered, so I am no longer needing to cower when in the path of a storm.


I let all the guilt and shame melt, so my inner peace can be felt.


I meet my potential with grace, so I can run the full length of this race. 


I leave this empty abyss, so I can now live a life of bliss.


This is my new foundation, allowing this place for my realization.

Compassion and grace are two of the most valuable tools one can apply toward self.  
Use generously. After all, they are free.
You can build this skill set but it requires practice and patience.

My Personal Created Quotes: Quote

Children learn what they live, not what you preach.
When you stay in an abusive relationship you teach them you are not valuable. Thus, they are not valuable.
It also teaches them to place their love for another above their love for themselves. This dramatically increases their chances of being involved in their own cycle of abuse when they get older. 
Stop sacrificing your safety, well-being, and boundaries for their disrespect and mistreatment. 
Love does not require you to suffer at the hand of abuse, EVER!!

Grief & the loss of a loved one is hard. It becomes a much more complex event for those who were abused. When the person they lost was their only source of a safe & loving place in those moments of chaos and horror. This loss can also intensify a sense of fear.

When you are treated bad long enough you start to feel bad. As if something is wrong with you. If that continues, you start to believe "you" are bad. Which is not true. 
The truth is the person that is doing this is being abusive.
Usually involving manipulation, gaslighting, and coercion for their benefit and gain. 
Ask yourself what is their agenda behind the mistreatment?

It was never real, it never even existed outside of your own mind. It is time you accept that.

This is destroying your sense of self-worth, self-esteem, and inner trust.
