Relationships

There is joy in Moving on

Someone asked me if I knew you

a million memories flashed through my mind

I just smiled and said I used to!

Allow no one to Break Your Self-confidence

She Rises From the Ashes

She rises from the ashes of her pain

It was not easy but she dug deep inside

and found an inner strength to get her through it.

Now she is not afraid to face her fears

She is not afraid to stand tall and shine

She holds her head high with confidence

And she will rise and keep on rising.

poetry, Relationships

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.

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.
