As you may recall from my previous blog post, my university hosted an It’s On Us rally this past week to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence on college campuses. The afternoon was filled with performances and speeches by student activists, including a powerful performance by the students of Spoken Word, who used to poetry to recite facts and statistics regarding violence on campus. A few exceptionally courageous survivors also shared their stories in front of the entire audience. Other survivors, many of whom had never met before, shared phone numbers and e-mail addresses, offering their support to each other. And then of course, there was Joe Biden.
When I heard that Joe Biden would be speaking, I expected he would give a short cookie cutter speech that would give him just enough publicity but not really mean much to the students in the audience. However, unlike most other…

"Usually adult males who are unable to make emotional connections with the women they choose to be intimate with are frozen in time, unable to allow themselves to love for fear that the loved one will abandon them. If the first woman they passionately loved, the mother, was not true to her bond of love,… Continue reading Hey Abusers!
It is not only validating, but incredibly healing to read about the journey of other survivors.
“A victim of domestic abuse will not leave until the idea of staying is scarier than the idea of leaving.” I finally reached this point another too long ago. I’m officially a survivor now.
Often, as I work with Survivors of Domestic Abuse, I hear how the life after abuse is much harder than living with the abuse. It’s sort of ironic to say that, but as a Survivor myself I do agree with that statement. For someone who has never lived with abuse you may ask, “How is that possible?” “Wouldn’t a life free of abuse be easier as you wouldn’t be abused?” Good question and you would think that would be the case, but in many ways it is not. Let me explain.
When you are in an abusive relationship, over time the abuse becomes familiar. Yes it is horrible but it is what you know. When I was in my abusive marriage the abuse was a terrible thing to endure, but it had become my normal. When someone would suggest leaving I became scared. I had lived so long in an…

Because they are meaningless. Because they aren't real. Because their intent was only to manipulate. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/understanding-narcissism/201708/why-do-narcissists-abuse-those-they-love?amp resonates a great deal. In short, they enjoy the torture. "When people have a Narcissistic Personality Disorder, two things interact to predispose them to be abusive: 1. They are low on emotional empathy. Emotional empathy is the capacity to feel what another… Continue reading Why include personal notes?

These words resonate. It’s telepathy:)
The pressure pushes deep
and deeper still
like a vice upon my soul
Clouds that won’t lift
stuck in sadness
External silence is deafening
while the internal voices
are relentless and harsh
and will not end
you need to love yourself
but this is a nightmare
of self hatred
an abandoning of self
mimicking the life I’ve lived
the only one I’ve ever known
They say don’t cry
it will get better
but they don’t know
for every tear they see
there are millions more
locked up inside of me
Every cell fights
to eat its own flesh
like a monster
I thought only wanted to scare me
but no it wants to destroy me
Isolation is all that is known
alone in the darkness
and in the light of day
a poverty of soul
The forest is on fire
but no one notices
