Positive Wednesdays-Overcoming Abuse
Last week a Policeman walked into his in-laws house and shot his father, mother, brother in- laws, his 16 year old step-daughter and his estranged wife. They all died except the wife. Then, he went over to his sister- in- laws house to shoot her too. He was unsuccessful, so he killed himself.
Later it was reported that he verbally and emotionally abused his wife of 14 years. With this in mind, i wanted to focus on overcoming abuse. I will not begin to think, i understand what someone who is being abused or has been abused is going through. I just want to offer a word of support (a virtual shoulder of so to speak).
Are you a lion or a lamb?
You wake you up and look a the dull walls smiling back at you.
The voices say, it's time to end it all.
You are nothing!!!
The world can go on without you.
My question is how will your life be remembered?
Will your story be lost among the millions, who were afraid to take a chance?
Or will you leave something noble behind?
There's everything to gain by believing that you're king or queen of the jungle, even if just for a day. (Go ahead and roar if you want to.)
Each of us has an amazing opportunity to live large, if we allow it.
But, it takes leaving the comfort of our familiar meadows and walking into the unknown.
Once you take that chance, you've made your days worthwhile.
Even if you have few resources, adventure is around every corner, and life is waiting to be devoured.
Each time you overcome an obstacle, a fear or a step back, you gain confidence.
Every small victory helps you feel more certain of yourself and your direction, pushing you further and faster than you ever thought possible. You can do it!
If you were to write the book of your life, would you want to read it?
It is better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand days as a lamb. - Roman proverb
