Failed Seduction

Failed Seduction

This is the story of a failed seduction. It is the story of a predator named John who failed in his attempt to get me drunk for the purpose of having sex with me. It’s a story that I’d like to share with you all that I believe young women can learn from.

It was a Sunday, and I had just been shopping at the supermarket in the city, and was sitting at the bus stop talking to a man whom I frequently see when I’m out and about. He’s a very knowledgeable man, one whom I enjoy talking with, and he’s always been the perfect gentleman. He’s not the predator in my story, but he’s part of the story. He was standing leaning against the frame of the bus shelter, and I was seated on the bench. This gentleman’s name is William. Continue reading

The Repeating Pattern of Abuse

The repeating pattern of abuse can last for years.

the repeating pattern of abuse

Don’t be a statistic.

Breaking the repeating pattern of abuse can take a lifetime. If you witnessed your mother being abused, chances are that you too will be abused, especially if either one or both parents were abusive towards you as well. You’ll repeat the family patterns until you break them, and you’ll pass them down to your own children. Making sure that this doesn’t happen requires awareness and a commitment to your own healing. It requires pulling out of the hustle and bustle of life in order to take time to work upon yourself. It requires developing discipline, and making your quest all about fixing yourself so that you can heal not only your own life, but affect the generations to come. Continue reading

Domestic Abuse Caught on Camera

Domestic Abuse Caught on Camera

Panorama reveals harrowing footage and other evidence of domestic violence incidents that now account for a third of all recorded assaults with injury in England and Wales. Filmed by police response teams equipped with body-worn video cameras, this new style of evidence gathering is helping to bring perpetrators to justice. But years of coercive control and terror often lie behind the violence. Panorama hears from wives, mothers and children who have also endured non-violent domestic abuse, which is now likely to be made a criminal offence in its own right.

If you, or someone you know, has been affected by the issues raised in this video about domestic abuse, contact an organisation close to you.

It was a horrific experience that the woman in this video went through. It is very typical of many cases of domestic abuse for the woman to feel that she can’t talk to anyone about what is going on. Also, it is typical that she won’t tell the police what is happening to her for fear of repercussions from her violent partner.  Continue reading

Story of a Woman

story of a woman

He: I am sorry I hit you. Believe me I didn’t mean to be so harsh! How could I do that to the one I love?”

I: “But you did hit me, and you think that saying sorry will erase all the pain I went through!  How could you be so barbaric?”

He: “Believe me baby, I didn’t intend to do that. It just came involuntarily; I am extremely sorry.”

Saying this he held me closely and by kissing my forehead, he smiled and requested once again to forgive him. I had to…. after all he was my all and all in this world! Continue reading

Mary’s Experience of Domestic Violence

Mary’s Experience of Domestic Violence

It was love at first sight when I met my boyfriend James at a football game in high school. He and I met when my friends and I were leaving after the game, and he and I accidentally bumped into each other. It was match made it in heaven when I saw him – he is a handsome guy with jet black hair, deep glaring black eyes and a smile that could light up a room. Plus, his body was to die for. He had a jealous streak and a hot temper but I never paid that any mind. I still wonder sometimes why he wanted me when I was just an average girl with dark hair and brown eyes with an average body. It still puzzles me sometimes. Continue reading

Escaping Family Violence

Escaping Family Violence

Violence doesn’t only occur between married or relationship partners, be they heterosexual, gay or lesbian. It also happens between adult siblings, cousins and it occurs from parents to children, even as adults. Violence doesn’t only come in the form of physical violence either. It can also appear as psychological and emotional violence. Escaping Family Violence is just as tricky as escaping violence in a spousal relationship.

Like in the movie Harry Potter, many Indigo children are born into families that are essentially “Muggles”, who don’t understand the abilities of Indigo children or their advanced spirituality. They not only don’t understand, they simply can’t understand because they don’t have the capacity to understand the mind of an Indigo child or adult.  It is beyond them.

The following story is based on one told to me by one of our readers about his own experience of violence, suffered at the hands of his parents and his brother, causing problems in his life between him and those he loves, ending up with him into a mental institution. It’s a story that occurs often when someone is gifted. It’s a story not to ignore. All names and identifying features of the story have been changed. Continue reading
