we are all belovid children of the universe, and yet there are dreadful things happening,

such as child abuse. It is said that over 30% of our population has experienced child abuse.
This is not something new. We are at a point where we are beginning to allow ourselves to be aware of things that we used to conceal behind walls of silence.
These walls are coming down so we can make changes.
Awareness is the first step towards change.
For those of us who had really difficult childhoods our walls and our armors are very thick and strong, still behind our walls, the little child in each one of us just wants to be noticed, loved and accepted exactly as we are.

There are many different kinds of abusers, the ones who physically hurt us, the ones who steal our spirit by sucking the soul out of us, the ones who sneak around stalking us and make us paranoid, the ones who take our childhood, use our bodies, take our innocence, rob us of our trust and take our hope...

Then, there are the ones who hurt us by not accepting us with our damaged hearts, for ignoring us for not being pure, or pushing us aside for things that were out of our control, for not wanting to listen and making us feel unacceptable or invisible. Then, there are the ones who judge us without facts, who look down their noses at us or get angry at us for confronting an abuser.

Then, there are the ones who belittle us because we drink too much, or we eat too much, or have some other addiction that was caused by some 'shit-bag' interrupting with your normal childhood and stifling our self-esteem, self-respect, self-appraisal, self-acceptance and replacing it with fear, guilt and other negative self talk and feelings.

These people ignore us or don't want to hear about our childhoods or the effect, because they
dont want to be reminded that the world can be a hurtful place. They dont want to be reminded that 'there for the grace of God go I'. They dont want to be reminded that this could happen to someone they love or someone they love, could be a perpertrator.

In now day and age, when child abuse is "common place", there is just too much of it for us to handle, to stop, so we will dig a hole and put our heads in the sand, pretend its not happening and ignor anyone who tells us different.

Yes there are people like that who just dont want to know, or cant handle knowing as they live their life with their head in a bag. Yes we have to walk away from them no matter who they are as they do way too much damage to us. I actually feel sorry for them , they remind me of the story in the bible (and no I'm not a bible basher :) ) of the man who gave his 3 son's 10 talents to go out and see what they can do in one year with their Talent's. I believe we represent the first son. even though our talent's have braught us enormous and heavy chalenges we have the strength and desire to learn and grow from them. the second son dabbled a bit and yes learned but also avoided conflict and risk. Where as the third son simply stuck his talent and head in the sand and let life pass him by. At the end of the day V V. I would prefer to look back and say I'm proud to have been me. I gave it a shot x x
