What Emotional Abuse Looks Like

What Emotional Abuse Looks Like

Emotion abuse is the most common form of abuse in most people/families, right next to verbal abuse. Although it’s not as harsh as physical abuse (being hit slapped or beaten), it is equally just as harmful and traumatizing to experience. What makes things worse is the abuser most likely isn’t aware of the damage being done. Which then only results to situations escalating into something that can’t be taken back or forgiven.

Examples of Emotional Abuse

  • The silent treatment.
  • Refusing to accept responsibility for actions.
  • Manipulating to get what you want.
  • Pushing someone to question their sanity.
  • Leading someone to believe something is their fault when it’s not.
  • Using shame to make a person feel bad.
  • Indifference when someone appears hurt, sad or upset.
  • Ignoring someone when they express deep feelings.
  • Ridiculing a person for vulnerability.

Self-Confidence/Self-Esteem

Self-Confidence/Self-Esteem

Lately my minds a mess. Full of questions I guess?

How confident can one girl be?

In her own skin… It tingles as the cradled heart sings.

I don’t dress to the tune of others opinions anymore.

The melody within me shifted streams, she flows so gently.

All the positive vibes i’ve never felt so alive.

I’ve been dealing with MAJOR self-esteem problems lately. Having confidence in yourself is a really difficult process that a lot of people go through. I have made progress slowly but surely I will be able to enjoy the skin Im in. You can never expect to make others happy if you aren’t happy with YOU first!

Book That Has Helped Me Tremendously

Reading the first couple chapters of this book really opened my eyes on what confidence truly means, and how important it is to be nice to your self because YOU are always listening! I haven’t finished yet and im excited to document my progress through my blog.

Stay tuned for My self-confidence workbook updates!!

Hope you Enjoy! Check out my cheesy new website! Have an Awesome day!

Lost

Lost

constantly exhausted, feeling drained
Despite hours slept. It’ll never appear like you’ve had enough.
Is this depression?
Or am I mixed with day and night?
Lately, I’m not feeling myself a little lost inside.
Desperate to find my way back.
Overcome by where to start
Days go by I feel a slightly better
But does the bleeding eternally truly end?
Souls say “Time heals all wounds,”
I can’t say I agree with that.
Time goes by it’s more natural to cope
It will nevermore go away.
Years adding up nevertheless to forget
Learn to let go, help yourself grow.

Rollercoaster of Adulthood

Rollercoaster of Adulthood

Moving up in life is a terrifying thing most humans have to go through, even though for some people “adulting,” can tend to be more of a challenge, and stressful to overcome. What does being an adult mean? Does it mean maturity? What about the endless choices you’ll have to make along the way as we continue to grow in life? Was it the right choice? What if you had taken the other route? Would my life had turned out differently if I chose the opposite of what my heart desired.?
When we compare life to a rollercoaster, it’s common for your thoughts to go from negative to positive in almost an instant. For some people, it is a thrilling sensation in your stomach when the rollercoaster drops and the adrenaline kicks in, but as for others, they wouldn’t agree. It’s not unlikely that some people despise rollercoasters. It’s probably safe to say that those people don’t like change as well. New can be very scary for some people, an even too crippling to accept an move forward with; For me, I’ve learned that embracing the change helps to build character, moving on with my life leading up to now I have made countless decisions; both rewarding and defeating. None the less, those choices and changes I’ve come to accept have shaped me into the person I am today, an for that, I am immensely grateful for the ups and downs life has to offer. At the age of 22, I see an enormous difference in my way of thinking about the future compared to other peers my age. Still, being responsible and having the willingness to mature. (Some perks people don’t get until much, MUCH later in life, unfortunately.) Are crucial in surviving adulthood. Ultimately, if you’d like my advice, I would tell you to go for it! If you believe in yourself enough, you can dominate any challenge/rollercoaster life decides to throw at you. By occasion, if you happen to be unhappy with anything in your life, take it as a lesson learned and grow from your mistakes. Don’t be afraid of them. Learn from them.
