With the advent of major athletes and recording and performing stars coming to the forefront over the recent years…about their own issues of abuse: physical, emotional, sexual…one can’t help but notice that life has some great “equalizers.”
You might be able to have fame and fortune…but then God tests you in another area or even several areas. Life is not supposed to be easy; it was not designed that way.
Our Life’s individual ‘tests’ are given to strengthen and improve our inner core. If we give in, the test, or tester, wins. Staying in an abusive relationship or not saying anything about it within a family allows the abuser to ‘win.’ That lowers our own self-esteem and increases their dysfunction. When I look back over history on all the men/ women who have made a difference for humanity…it was filled with victories not easily won. Rather, they were battles faught with endless conviction. We have that same ability. We are humans.
Ask someone for help or get it for another. Do not take “no” for an answer. The victory is there.
