In a world with loneliness and lonely thoughts I regain my faith in ways I can’t understand and in ways I cant comprehend. It saddens my heart to go through so much and see all the lives that God has touched. It amazes me how much I pray and pray and how much my loneliness continue to stay. I will push myself and give myself away my life is truly not my own. Thank you Heavenly Father my comforter, the best love I’ve ever known; the love of You.

PTSD

Domestic Violence awareness

We typically think of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a response to a horrible experience during military combat…While it’s true that, according to the National institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the risk remains highest among those in military service, any abnormal traumatic event can elicit symptoms. The disorder often affects people who have survived rape, natural disasters, physical abuse and severe accidents.

Symptoms of PTSD include relieving the traumatic event via flashbacks, nightmares, and frightening thoughts as well as avoiding reminders of the event, feeling guilty or emotionally numb, being easily startled, feeling tense, and having trouble sleeping. Treatment includes psychotherapy (talk therapy) as well as antidepressant medications.

Two other recently studied treatment approaches –  Guided imagery and cognitive therapy – have been shown to help relieve PTSD symptoms and in some cases even cure the disorder. One study combined standard PTSD treatment with healing touch (gentle touch to restore the body’s energy balance) and guided imagery, which uses visualization by the patient.

 

 

Purpose driven…

Domestic Violence awareness

Although the dark clouds may cover you, there will be sunshine for those days that you stand and fight for a piece of mind. Do things that encourage you, makes you smile or just has you curious all over again. Learn a new hobby, join a book club, start a girls night out…. but whatever YOU do; make sure its from your heart.

Listen to the love inside you and not the voices of man… when you are lonely and no one calls, or checks on you… Just know that you create Joy from the love of GOD!! You are never alone when God is your best friend.

Live your life with purpose… on purpose!

Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t. by deep life quotes

Do you know your worth? What is your self value? Do you look for validation from others?

There are way too many opinions and too many voices in this world. However, have you ever considered that you don’t have to pay mind to everything?

Silence can be a gift, and you need wisdom to know when it is necessary. Sometimes, we have to let go of everything we hear and go on with our lives, not caring about what other people might think about us.

Ultimately, your opinion of yourself is the only thing that should be able to make or break your day, your mood, your drive, your image and your life. How you see yourself will determine your limit and how much you get out of life.

HERstory…

She never knew it would be like this… the reaction of her fate, yet she remains ever so confidant that things will soon change. She came to talk to me for a while to give me a brief break down of what she was going through and all the while she was talking, I thought to myself, ” I can relate to you”. Moments of terror from day to day…. not knowing what mood their in, hiding her face and body from the bruises that came from him.

Verbally, physically, emotionally it hurt and also her mentality and spiritual worth disbursed. I cried while she began to explain how bad she felt to stay… I let her know that her feelings were just that and it may never go away.

Abuse comes in many forms and some we just dont know…. but HERstory is to be shared to help other women grow.

You just never know by looking at someone what they’re going through… so be careful how you speak and react because it could some day be you. What would you do if the tables turned, who would you talk to? You feel in heart that trust is gone and you cant trust anyone…..

I will say this….. Dont look down on others because you dont know where they’ve been…. we all have a story of testimonies and we all have sinned, just take the time to know someone and use better judgement so you can have a positive and healthy life. When people tell you things, its not for you to gossip and spread things you are unsure of…. you are told because you are meant to change something or learn from it.

Herstory could be your story….
