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.
My book, addresses one of America’s darkest secrets, the topic of Childhood Abuse.
The statistics are astounding: one in four girls and one in six boys in America are abused before their eighteenth birthday!
Each person who has been abused: friend, colleague, neighbor, or family member becomes an active and integral member of our society. Their unresolved issue with past abuse becomes our abuse issues. Healing and moving forward to a healthy future is more than possible. The story “Patricia” shares, although shocking, is not unusual for someone who has been abused. Hers is a story of hope, survival, and beating the odds. In fact, it can be anyone’s story.
Spirit Unbroken is not only a testament to the human spirit, but it also offers suggestions and proven methods of healing and moving forward. It is now released by http://www. PublishAmerica. com you may visit their website to read more.
Spirit Unbroken has received praise for its positive healing suggestions and optimistic outlook of moving past the abuse. It can be used with all types of abuse: physical, emotional, and sexual as all are equally damaging to its recipient(s). I am a high school teacher and instructor in English on the college level; I am also a survivor of Childhood Abuse. I have worked with boys/men, girls/ women for twenty years, vocationally, to help them heal and move forward. Repeatedly, I had been told that I should write my simple ideas and philosophies down for everyone. Finally, I have done that. My book is personal testament to healing and positive choices that we can make to move beyond our abuse.
