...I had told my parents the FIRST time he assaulted me...
...they hadn't felt they "had the right" to treat me like that...
had left sooner, would my kids have been mentally healthier??!
...I had told my parents when the babysitter did that to me...
...I had realized I didn't deserve that, sooner...
would have asked me, "why did they feel they could abuse you", instead of asking why I didn't leave...would I have felt more empowered?
...accepted the power deep within me...can I make a difference for someone else?
...share my story...will they believe me?
...we all did "our part"...CAN we change the world??!
*October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this, no matter what month it is, to help
get the word out. The Victim has to make the choice - but, "What If..." they read something you sent them, that makes the difference? #walkinTHEIRshoes
*I will be sharing a "What If..." post on the first Monday, of every month. I
would love to share YOUR "what ifs". Please send your "What If..." ideas to Connie J... - firstname.lastname@example.org; or through Ozer, at the website or email, email@example.com.
