    Take A Stand

    I was a victim of abuse so from a woman's perspective I know what it's like. I work with children who daily live in fear of someone hurting them. I've witnessed the effects first hand, on animals that were neglected and abused. No abuse is excusable...we need to give a voice...

    It comes in different forms.

    We all do it. It's become natural, and accepted. It makes me so sad as anger keeps in. So much I've seen. If only that could vanish.

    There Are All Forms

    There are all forms of abuse; physical, emotional, mental, and variations thereof. The abuse that bothers me the most is that mental, emotional variation called passive aggressiveness.  I think it bothers me so much because it's not only hurtful it's also frustrating.  I would...

    People Or Animals Who Would Stand For Such A Thing.

    Emotional, mental, or physical who would really approve of it? I got bullied but was lucky to be as strong as I am. I have a strong will and brute strength. I would defend myself from many. I wasn't even seen as a women sometimes. I don't really care anymore. It's funny when I...

    There was a time when I had no idea what abuse

    is. I experienced a form of abuse as bullying in my teen years. I thought it was a nightmare. It changed me at the core. But I still had no idea what abuse really is. I went through cycles of hate and anger, followed by utter emotionlessness which scars me to this very day. And...

    Mental abuse may not leave a bruise

    but it's still abuse. And it changes people. My children will never have to worry about that from my husband or I, like both of us did from our fathers.
