April is National Child Abuse Month. This is the month to make a difference in a child’s life
Abuse does not discriminate by gender, age, religion, ethnicity, or social status. Indeed, it really is the one time that: ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. It can be delivered to the offended by sexual, physical, emotional, or verbal abuse. Each and every one of these types of abuse is equally as damaging to our self-esteem, our souls, or our physical being…if we let it prevail during our life.
Whether we are being abused now or have been abused in the past, it in no way defines either who we are… or who we are able to become. We are what we choose for ourselves; we are not defined by what has been said or done to us!
The road is wide open, but it is up to us to take the first step. The abuser can not love themselves, therefore they are unable (or unwilling) to love us. It is never because we are unworthy of being loved. But do we love ourselves? Today, is a good day to start. Be a person that is admired by being a person who values his/her own self-worth.
Find yourself, while Blessings and strength find you.
