My Thoughts…. I recently read in the paper about a woman and her 3 children who were found dead, murdered. Her family said it was a Domestic Violence situation. Every time I hear about these types of cases I say, “When will it stop!
In my book, Run for your Life, From the Love of Your Life, a Woman’s Rescue and Recovery Guide. I make it a point to let women know there is a way to stop Domestic Violence. That way is very plain and to the POINT. Love Yourself more than You “think” you love him.
As a former Battered Wife, I can see where this can be harder to do than it sounds, I’ve been on both sides of the matter. I know that a woman who is attracted to an abusive man has some beliefs she has not dealt with. Some she may not even been aware of, that leads her into a toxic relationship. Some women believe that a man beating them means he “loves” them. I know a few women who feel this way. And they will never leave their man, no matter what he does to them.
I wish my book could help them, but I want to reach the teens and women who know they deserve better, but need to have a voice continue to tell them that. I am that voice. To any woman who is in a negative relationship, for any amount of time, but now feels she wants more, like a loving relationship, to feel at peace, to smile and to be happy, after being sad for so long. I want you to know you can have all of that and more. Self-Love is the Key!
Self-love can literally save your life. It can also put you on the path to health, happiness, love and good fortune. It can bring good, loving people into your life. People who will appreciate you and love you for who you are, just as you are.
Self-love is being there for you and knowing when something and someone is not good for you. Be it a relationship, a job, a career, etc. To start on the path of self-love you must first become aware of what makes you feel good and what doesn’t. Being criticized, and beat-down doesn’t make you feel good. Being told you are a beautiful, wonderful, amazing person does. Taking better care of your body, mind and emotions is self-love. If you aren’t sure where to start just read my book, Run for Your Life, from the Love of Your Life, A Woman’s Rescue and Recovery Guide. available on Amazon.
And come back to my blog regularly for more topics to help women in negative relationships learn to release the beliefs that put them there, and learn new ones to take them forward.
