To Continue the conversation started in post yesterday……THE EXCUSES OF NOT TALKING ABOUT ABUSE…..BECAUSE let’s keep on talking.
We don’t talk about abuse as much as we should…..Because
- Because nobody else is talking about it and I’ll feel like the only one
- Because I don’t want anyone else to know my dirty secret
- Because I didn’t think about talking about it until now
- Because I am afraid
- Because I don’t want to get low
- Because it’s overwhelming….. there’s too much and if I start talking will I ever stop talking?
- Because I want to still be me and not a victim
- Because I don’t want people feeling sorry for me
- Because I don’t want my batterer or abuser to win by letting it affect my life now
- Because I’ve moved on and don’t want to go back
- Because I don’t want counseling…..only weak people need counseling
- Because I might get so angry that I would do something I’ll regret
- Because I don’t want to think about it or remember the details
- Because I let it happen…..I didn’t stop it
- Because people will think I’m unlovable
- Because people will think I’m promiscuous
- Because I don’t know what words to say…..I don’t know where to start
- Because my abuser is still alive and I couldn’t face having to go to court
- Because my partner would literally kill my abuser
- Because I am too busy and I don’t have time to sort it all out and get on with the rest of my commitments
- Because people are too busy to listen
- Because people have their own problems…..they don’t want to hear mine
- Because the last time I talked about it I wasn’t helped
Let’s end the silence. Talk about abuse. Instead of propagating Post Traumatic Stress…..let’s start a movement of Post Traumatic Growth!

Abuse knows no gender, age or place of residence..be aware of your friends and family, watch for cautious behavior, bruises, limited conversation when certain people are around…

Post Traumatic Growth. I love it. That is what we need.
