She Dreams of Love

She dares to be a dreamer

she believes in love,

and even when doubt assails her

her heart still holds on.

For what is life without love

and to have someone to love.

Sometimes she smiles to hide her pain

and hope that someday,

all will be right with the world

and love will find her again.

How do I Love Thee

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways

I love the way you smile

That twinkle in your eyes,

I love the sound of your heart

Beating gently against mine.

I love the way you love me

And I love you too,

Darling to eternity

It will just be me and you.

Sweet Bitter Love

Dear sweet beautiful woman

I wish I could take you back in time

To where you saw love through rose colored lenses.

Dear beautiful woman

I wish I could take you back in time

To where falling in love was like falling

into a sweet dream you didn’t want to wake up from.

Dear beautiful woman all is not lost,

In time your broken heart will heal,

And perhaps one day You will find love again!

How can I tell if he is Grooming me for Abuse

In many abusive relationships the abuse doesn’t start right away. In fact when he is pursuing you he may be so charming that you feel you have won a prize. It is when he gets comfortable with you and he believes he has you hooked that he begins to show his true colors.

If he begins to have problem with you having a relationship with your former friends and even relatives, he may not have your best interest at heart. Abusers love to have their victims isolated. That way when the abuse begins, you have no one to turn to.

If he hits you and tell you he is sorry and it won’t happen again, don’t believe him. If he could not control his temper in that instance, what is to stop him from losing control again. Each time you forgive him, you give him more power over you and sad reality is that he is grooming you to accept abuse in the relationship.

How do I know he is the one?

Like most things in life, nothing is guaranteed in a relationship. It may turn out the way you expect it to, or it might not. The important thing is to get to know the person you are dating. You may find little clues that will tell you if he is a keeper.

  1. Is he kind, considerate and cares about your happiness as much as he does about his? If he does, he could be the one.
  2. If he treats you with respect, makes you feel special, listens when you talk and make you feel what you have to say is important, he could be the one.
  3. If he makes the effort to spend quality time with you, talks about his dreams and aspirations and a future that includes you, he could be the one
  4. If he not only tells you, but shows you that he loves you and how much you mean to him, he could be the one.
  5. If he has all of the above qualities, you probably have a winner on your hand. Hold on to him.

Relationships, Stop Abuse of Women

Domestic Violence

Your silence is the greatest weapon your abuser has to use against you. The longer you keep silent and accept abuse the more he will break you down and rob you of your self-esteem. Soon you will believe you can’t do any better, no one else is going to love you and a little love with abuse is better than no love at all. Stop! Do not believe his lies. You deserve better!

Love is not supposed to hurt!

Relationships, Stop Abuse of Women

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence continues to be a scourge. Though it affect both women and men, women are three times more likely to die than men. The fight to end violence in relationship is not an easy one as often many people do not seek help until the abuse becomes unbearable and the relationship so toxic that addressing it becomes more complex.

Before it gets to that point one must take action. Learn to recognize the signs that someone may be grooming you for abuse. When someone raises his hand and strikes you, then apologize and you forgive him and stay and the cycle is repeated again and again, that person is grooming you to accept abuse as a part of your relationship. Don’t fool yourself into believing he will change and things will get better. It never does. The moment the abuse begins is the moment you must get out of the relationship.
