It Changes; But it Doesn't Go Away...

It is weird.Some people have it in their mind that if a person who has endured abuse, and talks openlt about it, that somehow they are not getting on with their life. 
Talking about it is one clear sign that they are doing well with getting on with their life.

Silence, apathy and indifference are the very traits that perpetuate abusive cycles.

All of this, is why I called my first novel, depicting one women's journey out of abuse: 
"The House that Silence Bought" 

(because those who have been abused are to combat silence at every turn)

People who speak out against abuse are not meaning to turn people into victims...because the abuse did that...they are meaning to help former victims up out of the that they can rebuild their lives. Reaching back helps others overcome. Healing, faith and strength translates us from victims, to overcomers!

Not everyone who comes out of abuse and reaches a healthier place, will reach back to help others...that may not be their niche in life...but it is mine.

Let me know how you are doing.
