I use to be blind.... i mean i knew things about abuse and about the quality of life.  But they faded as i was more and more beat down by life and individuals.  Finally one day I acted and my life changed.  I learned about what i was doing wrong. I learned about what others had been doing wrong. 

I didn't look back and I was very happy. 

But it is easy to slip back into the cycle and old ways.  I want to be empowered but I have a lot of work to do.  And in a way I just don't know how.  i don't have any role models. Learning from real people is the best way I have found. 

Not being empowered and feeling stupid or abused tears me up inside.
