Atmosphere

Sometimes your words need to be expressed in other ways. This is one of those times.

I am a strong, capable woman. I consider myself really lucky because I have a good man who is supportive, loving and caring. He would never raise a hand to me. I know that there are other women out there not as lucky. Please…break the cycle, and don’t be afraid to call. There are people that can help.

  • Jo

    Very significant. I feel someone will see this just in time. That's why you needed to do it.

  • Thanks Jo. I literally was in the middle of writing something completely different and my inner voice told me to "stop". Then, I was drawn to find this video. Whenever this happens, I just go with it because I really believe in destiny.

  • What a powerful post!! The song has a great message!! I'm sure that one person will watch this and read your words…and break the cycle!! Love it! Jenn.

  • Wow, Susan, that was amazing. Three different women who I'm very close to have been the victims of horrible domestic abuse, so this hits close to my heart. I hope your post reaches someone who needs to see it and I'm so glad that you followed your instincts and posted this.

    One of my short stories that won a competition last year is about an abused wife. It'll be included in an upcoming multi-authored book.

  • Great decision. It's always best to follow your instincts. I wrote two completely different posts for this blog hop too, but the first one just didn't quite feel right. 🙂

  • Excellent post. I am glad that you decided to follow your instincts and do this post in this way. This hits close to home as I like to help the homeless and those in domestic abuse situations find shelter in a safe place. I know that this post will touch many as it relays a message of hope to all whom have been a victim.

  • It's so sad that some kids grow up in this atmosphere.

  • Wonderful message here, bravo.

  • Very powerful, Susan. It's terrible when there is abuse in a home – whether physical, verbal or mental. It must be awful!

  • Thank you for sharing this. I'll also share on my Twitter page.
