So within the time that I make this blog and post…. Children are being taken, abused and harmed in one way or another. Not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well.
Bullying is so natural to talk about now and I just cant understand why we let it happen. What are we doing to speak up for those who cant? What is mission to help others?
We not only need to protect our children but protect ourselves by not letting negativity and anger be a primary source of connection with our youth. I am just speachless with the fact that middle age to even elementary children are commiting suicide, and worried about how they look.
Can you imagine the impact on a child to keep a secret that hurts them, only because they dont want to hurt their parents, feeling like there is something wrong with them and even scared to speak to anyone because of the confusion and feelings of being raped, molested, or bullied?
Its alot to think about but what would you do for your own?
How can we help?
When is Violence and abuse going to end?
Tired is why she’s sitting… feeling alone and unappreciated.
The days run all together and some days she doesn’t know or remember.
She cries, she laughs and she hides inside so no one will know why she’s sad.
Gazing off into the sky, her thoughts are a mile high.
So much on her mind.
Yet, she is tired, that’s why she’s sitting and feeling all alone.
One day she will stand, rise, feeling tall and smiling on her own.
I never knew about the world in such a way… how some people can be so mean and evil. How could I have been so naive to my surroundings? Missing children from infant and up, all the violence, and homelessness. My heart cries out, and I feel so much…. Why am I so sensitive to the world and what is taking place?
How can I; No, how can WE make a better change !
Will the world get better? We need to focus more on being more loving than hurting one another. Let’s love and bring more peace, because if WE don’t care….
WHO else will?
I just never knew…
Not a day goes by when I am not missing their sweet smiles, their tiny voices and their hands reaching for mine. They are growing up way too fast in this cruel cruel world, but I will instill in them all the love I have.
I feel so blessed not because of the love of my family. but because I am loved in return unconditionally. I thank God daily for everyone he has placed in my life and I truly thank him for restoring all that is good back into my surroundings.
I am missing their smiles, their smell and all the talking and laughter that they do when I am around, but I know it will never change and that makes me so proud.
Missing my family…
Loving them so…
The love of family is greater than they’ll ever know.
My Dearest Love,
How I want to thank you for your support during times when I am so busy helping others, for the days you prayed for me and over me as I cried from being stressed out and overwhelmed.
How I want to love you for all the days you gave more of yourself than I would ever allow because I was running low on energy. You have been more to me than my dearest love and oh how I adore thee.
You are an amazing hubby with the biggest heart, even though you ; okay well we get on each others nerves… we can never be apart.
My best friend, my love, and my hubby for life ….
I love the way you love me and I am a happy Wife!
Over 90 percent of people who die by suicide have a mental illness at the time of their death. And the most common mental illness is depression. Untreated depression is the number one cause for suicide.
Something to look out for when concerned that a person may be suicidal is a change in behavior or the presence of entirely new behaviors. This is of sharpest concern if the new or changed behavior is related to a painful event, loss, or change. Most people who take their lives exhibit one or more warning signs, either through what they say or what they do.
If a person talks about:
- Being a burden to others
- Feeling trapped
- Experiencing unbearable pain
- Having no reason to live
- Killing themselves
Specific things to look out for include:
- Increased use of alcohol or drugs
- Looking for a way to kill themselves, such as searching online for materials or means
- Acting recklessly
- Withdrawing from activities
- Isolating from family and friends
- Sleeping too much or too little
- Visiting or calling people to say goodbye
- Giving away prized possessions
People who are considering suicide often display one or more of the following moods:
- Loss of interest
- Mental health conditions
- Bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder
- Borderline or antisocial personality disorder
- Conduct disorder
- Psychotic disorders, or psychotic symptoms in the context of any disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- Substance abuse disorders
- Serious or chronic health condition and/or pain
- Stressful life events which may include a death, divorce, or job loss
- Prolonged stress factors which may include harassment, bullying, relationship problems, and unemployment
- Access to lethal means including firearms and drugs
- Exposure to another person’s suicide, or to graphic or sensationalized accounts of suicide
- Previous suicide attempts
- Family history of suicide attempts
**There are times when we don’t think about what others may be facing or going through, but as I look around and I hear about children as young as 8 years old harming themselves, it saddens me and angers me. It is also scary and can be confusing when you are not aware of the pain that people feel.
As adults, we face so many of life’s challenges and even traumatic events that we too cannot handle but by spreading awareness and speaking out about what we have been through can truly help someone else; not only to save them but also so they are strong enough to reach out.**
A child so small
so vulnerable and weak
not allowed to speak.
Lying awake in bed
knowing he'll soon appear
Frightened and trapped
living a torturous nightmare.
Body is shaking
the terrible acts of sin.
Left all alone
with no one in sight
The abused child cries silently
all through the night.
Como se cura de un crimen tan horrible?
Las cicatrices y daños dura toda la vida ....
