childhoodabuseawareness - 158 posts

So following in from my previous post I just want to remind everybody that from the beginning I have said I will be open, honest and raw in this account. Life is messy. Our childhoods were messy. I want to write about that. I want people to see my truth because it helps me. It helps me feel validated. That while post was worth it because I received a few dms thanking me for my honesty and that is what it’s all about. My experiences have to be worth something. And even if I only help one person then the embarrassment and shame I feel will be worth it. Much love xxxx. *

My daddy smiled too hard. In a way that made his cheeks balloon up and his eyes disappear. It was like joy would overtake his entire face … leaving nothing but his contagious laugh.
In the end, it wasn’t joy that consumed him after all … depression claimed his laugh - permanently silencing the melody of my childhood.
Anna took some updated headshots today for our new website. My overly expressive smile and full cheeks come honest. That’s for certain. She lovingly worked coaching me to smile authentically but not TOO much. It was necessary but now I think about it … it’s one of the things that helps me remember him most. Thank God for the dappled things. .

I learnt a long time ago to own what I have done and deal with it because I know that there is always someone waiting to use that against me somewhere. So to avoid it I tend to own it and address it ASAP so that by the time anyone thinks of saying anything about it I’m solid and what they say does not affect me in anyway.
By take control of our own lives we avoid giving others the opportunity to use their words to slow your progress.
Try it, it really works.
I am a single parent of two children and most people try to use that to “put me in my place” or to make me feel small. But fortunately I accepted my situation the day my children were born and never looked back. I take full responsibility for my situation and I make it work for us without stressing or feeling less than. And because of that whoever comes at me with that situation has no power or effect on my day or life! I sorted that ages ago I’m now living my life and being grateful for all I have 💃🏽 So remember next time anything happens just deal with it and own it and you’ll be surprised how free and happy you’ll be when someone else speaks on it!
Have a wonderful day
From
Blessings

💥Tip #5 On How To Conquer Your Abuse From The Past:
.
.
DON’T DO LIFE ON YOUR OWN 🤝
.
.
Everyone no matter how successful they are has a coach. .
.
Whether it is a business coach, life coach, personal trainers, or mentor. .
.
EVERYONE needs someone who supports them and can help them get to the next level faster & with less pain.
.
.
IF you are trying to heal from abuse on your own STOP. You aren’t meant to go through this time of healing on your own because it’s too hard on your own.
.
.
Instead HIRE someone.
.
.
Yes I mean pay money for a coach, counselor, or mentor.
.
.
That’s the first step to healing is saying “you are worth investing in yourself!”
.
.
You are worth investing in yourself AND IF you are ready to invest in yourself to learn how to stop letting your abuse define you then apply for my 90 program called RISE UP ACADEMY.
If NOT my program then find one that works for you.

I grabbed this quote from a Shaken Baby Syndrome support group I’m in. These parents have and continue to go through what we went through. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s heart breaking, yet so uplifting to know I’m in a safe place. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s extremely hard to open up and feel all the feelings. Sometimes it’s easier to just survive each day.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you. I’m here for you. You’re safe with me. ❤️⁣⁣

..........................................⁣

I see you running your child to therapy when your friends are running their kids to little league or ballet. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you slipping out of the conversation when your friends are all chiming in about milestones and test grades. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you constantly juggling appointments and meetings. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you sitting at your computer for hours researching what your child needs. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you spread thin, but still going the extra mile for your family. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you digging for depths of strength you never dreamed you had. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you showing appreciation to the teachers, therapists, and medical professionals who serve your child with you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you rising early in the morning to do it all again after another chaotic night. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you when you’re hanging on to the end of your rope for dear life. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I know you feel invisible, like nobody notices any of it. I want you to know I notice you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you relentlessly pushing onward. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you keep choosing to do everything in your power to give your child the best possible care at home, in school, at therapy, and at the doctor. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What you’re doing matters. It’s worth it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
On those days when you wonder if you can do it another minute, I want you to know I see you. I want you to know you’re beautiful. I want you to know it’s worth it. I want you to know you’re not alone. I want you to know love is what matters most, and you have that nailed. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And on those days when you have breakthroughs, those times when the hard work pays off and success is yours to cherish, I see you then too, and I am proud of you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Whichever day today is, you’re worthy, you’re good, and I see you. — Author Unknown⁣⁣

Struggling. So much struggle. I want to stop crying. Woke up husband. He is getting us a cold cloth, body's face, head and our interject won't stop their raging. ☹️😵💩😭Let's try sleep again. Goodnight beautiful humans and furs and all In-between #Dissociativeidentitydisorder #interject #traumadisorder #lifewithDID #migraine #facepain #feverof103 #childhoodabuseawareness #flashbacks #nightmares 😭😭

Just because it’s over doesn’t mean it’s over..
We carry the pain with us, although we want to forget it. Abuse in all forms is very damaging and we forget that because we cannot see the scars imprinted in our minds. I still remember the feeling of terror when my mother used to barge into my room like a demon had possessed her as her hand swiped across my dresser. All of my collectibles and keepsakes were smashed to the ground in her fit of rage. The toilet got clogged and immediately I was the one she blamed. But that was the usual; I was blamed for things even when I wasn’t home. She used to randomly smash my belongings when something happened in the house. My siblings watched in terror. They didnt know what to do. Then she’d pull my hair and push me down while I pleaded “no, no stop it wasn’t me!” She couldn’t even hear me at that point because she had to get her aggression out. I was always left to clean up the mess. Once she broke a globe (you know the ones with the water in them and when you shake them, theres glitter)
I foolishly used to stand there begging for answers from her “why did you do this?” And she seemed to have hated me and would walk away and act like I didn’t matter. I picked up the pieces of glass and all my things off the floor, some broke and some in tact after every episode she had. This went on for years. I cried a lot and didn’t know what I did. Rather than seeing she had the problem, as a child I thought I was bad and wrong. It manifested in me throughout childhood that I was internally defective.

Excuse the typos. I'm too lazy to go back and fix them at the moment 😂
My father was not the best lol. He put me through a lot at an early age, but I did learn a lot from watching him make his mistakes as well. One thing being that I would never in my life make another human being feel like this, like I did.

Children who experience four or more traumatic events in childhood 👧🏻🧒🏾👦🏼are 5x more likely to become an alcoholic 🥃🍷🍸, 60% more likely to become obese, and 46x more likely to become an injection-drug 💉user than the general population. This according to a study done on over 17,000 patients in Kaiser Permanente’s Adverse Childhood Experiences study. ⁣

Avoiding resolution of these early childhood traumatic experiences will almost guarantee ongoing psychological suffering which can lead to the need to self-medicate using substances. ⁣😕

At Profound Treatment, we work hard with you to get to the root of your psychological pain through intensive therapy and individualized treatment programs that cater to each individuals emotional, psychological and physical needs. To find out more about our programs, call us today for a confidential assessment of how we can help you. 🙏🏼✨⁣

The calendar reads Fathers Day so I hope everyone who finds that meaningful has a wonderful day. I send hope for peace of mind and tranquil hearts to those who have complicated relationships with parental figures who come to mind on this day.
In my early years of school we would have to make crafts for our father in preparation for Father’s Day. My teachers would always somehow know that I “don’t have a dad” and would whisper, all too loudly, that my craft was for my mom or grandma. Perhaps I should draw flowers and use the purple crayon.
Coffee breath injuring my senses, dyed hair against my cheek, causing a symphony of snickers and audience of 7 year old eyes, I’d strain to hear these whispers; I could intake the info at this volume, though what did this mean?
There was in fact a “man in the house;” I had a collection of men, some would promise a pet if left the room, others would beat me until it was hard to breath. They would be undeservedly gifted with names like Dad and Stepfather when a clueless social worker would scan only my stomach for bruises.
I was ok “without a dad.” I am ok without a father. I know the calendar inspires others to disagree.
I celebrate parental figures who have crafted havens of love, care and support in this wild, scary world. I celebrate surviving into adulthood in the midst of all the villains out there. I do this everyday, but esp on days where a calendar tends to inspire deeper and more frequent thoughts of such figures. .

Repost from @bpd_beautiful @ukborderline
This is written just so perfectly I had to repost.

The amount of times I’ve been told I am dramatic is unreal. Especially emotionally and when trying to explain myself.
Being attached is the worst part 😭

Fuck the narc

I know what abuse is now I can sort of tell the difference and I’m learning to accept kindness and love without being paranoid there is a hidden agenda. With the help of my psychologist 😂literally explain every friendship/relationship to him 😂

As I’ve grown into my 20’s it’s been brought to my knowledge that I was not my abusers only victim.
The first time this was brought to me was 6 years ago. I was drunk in a Main Street parking lot crying to a friend because a guy wasn’t attracted to me enough to have sex with me (this wasn’t true, but it’s what my mind had convinced me) I proceeded to cry about why I had to be this way, and why did “I” have to be the only one that was abused? The person that I was crying to looked at me dead in the eye and said “you weren’t” I immediately connected the dots, and to this day my mind races back to an exact event where the individual that had been abused, had been abused. Of course at the time I had no clue because my abuse had not begun yet (or maybe it had but I was so young). Each time my mind takes me there my heart breaks 💔. Now that I’m at a different stage of my healing, someone else is opening up to me... and to think that all those years ago I was picking up a cross that was NEVER mine to carry. To think that at such a young age I was BRAVE and still so NAIVE enough to believe that I was allowing what happened to me, to happen to me because I thought I was protecting those around me. I had a sister, cousins, and even a mother to protect. THAT WAS NEVER MY JOB, NOT MY ASSIGNMENT. I WAS A CHILD, AND I DID NOT HAVE THAT POWER. Now as an adult I hear these stories of children being abused and all I can think is those poor babies they’re so young, but I’ve never stopped to think how young I was. To think of the multitude of children that currently are doing what I did. That are putting such responsibility on themselves, some even blame themselves. If this is/was you, ask God to help you forgive yourself. Let go of that cross that is not yours to bear. No longer allow yourself to be the victim. You are strong, you have survived, your story... #tobecontinued

The “play is learning fair” today was so much with Haven Family Resource here in LHC. We let the kiddos decorate cupcakes and parents received useful information for themselves & others 🙌🏻✌🏻 #childhoodabuseawareness

“Strong families know how to show
L O V E to each other,” was something that I read recently. Or at least we try our hardest, am I right?? To know there are children out there being abused and that there are victims of abuse all around us breaks my heart.
.
We have designed this shirt in honor of Childhood Abuse Awareness month and we hope that knowledge + love can help bring healing and strength back to the family.
.
Please join us as we come together as parents, friends, siblings, and as a community to listen to and to love one another. You never know what someone is going through until you stop, listen, and love.
.
10% of all profits will go to the Child Advocacy Center to help victims of abuse and to raise awareness. .

I just saw this thread on @theshaderoom and the comments brought tears to my eyes. ⁣


From 'comparing their children with other children' to 'not celebrating their children's wins no matter how small', the list goes on on that thread. ⁣


We need to do better as parents. That post brought back terrible memories. Lawd!!!!😥😥😥 ⁣


That our parents did it some kind of way doesn't mean we should continue the vicious cycle.⁣


Maybe it's a Nigerian thing but most of us have been conditioned to think spanking our kids for instance is harmless. ⁣


I used to beat the crap out of my kids years ago but now, I'm a firm believer that it's counter-productive. The stories I could tell about how much that has backfired!!! ⁣


As for me, one toxic parenting style that I'm NEVER continuing with my children is the absence of any form of bonding and words of endearment. ⁣


Till date, I don't remember my father ever hugging me. ⁣


That died with my parents. I don't see them as bad people. They did the best they could but I'm doing things differently. ⁣


My parenting isn't perfect and my kids are farrr from perfect but I will not be repeating some things with them. ⁣


So, over to you. What toxic parenting style are you leaving with your parents??? Please share with us. Let's learn from you.

Join the fight (everyday!) but also every Thursday through the month of April! $1 from each Blue Ribbon Cookie sold will go back to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Rockwall County! #goblueforkids2019 #childhoodabuseawareness #rockwall #roysecity #sweetfacebakes #istandagainstchildhoodabuse #blueribboncookies

April is here. #oralcancerawareness and #childhoodabuseawareness month #onebadchad #breastcancerawareness 🎀

April 1st marks the first day of childhood abuse prevention month, be sure to wear blue today to show your support for these kids💙 I had such a humbling time with CASA at their annual #PromiseOfHope luncheon this past week. This post was difficult for me to write, it’s hard to find the words. As a domestic abuse survivor I cannot stress just how important for children to have a constant in their life when everything else seems to be falling apart. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) provides children who have an extreme need just that, a constant individual who advocates for the best care that the child needs. The stories that these kids have can be unbelievable and I am so blessed to say that I never had a CASA because I didn’t need one as bad as another child in my hometown. Seeing the work that these individuals do truly lights a fire in my soul and calls me to serve the children in my community who don’t have a voice. If you are interested in becoming a CASA, visit their website for your local chapter casajwc.org (for Johnson/Wyandotte counties) for more information on training. You must be at least 21 years old and willing to serve at least one full year. You can truly make a difference in the lives of children hurting in your community! ————————
April is childhood abuse prevention month! Take the step to educate yourself on the signs of abuse, enroll in a CASA training, or make a donation today!————— #casa #casajwc #missksusa #misskansasusa #crownkansas #missusa #missuniverse #vanbrosgirls #takethecrown #childhoodabuseawareness #childhoodabuseperventionmonth

Am I happy now? No. I am borderline. I feel like my body is on fire with every emotion a person could feel. But I feel better.
I am still alive, and yesterday it did not feel like I would survive. 💔 I survived. That let me know I am stronger then I knew. I am borderline and this is killing me.
I changed the outside Because the inside feels so gross and ugly. It feels like a black hole of nothingness eating every beautiful thing about me. And now I fee falsely beautiful on the outside. The inside doesn’t match.
It’s time to feel beautiful inside. Starting with the color purple. I’m a chameleon of change. Purple will help me heal. I am borderline.

Growing up, my mom always made sure that there was no shortage of supplies to support my artistic endeavors. I am so thankful for the carefree childhood I was able to enjoy, but I am also aware that many children grow up in a turbulent environment without experiencing any semblance of stability. They are forced to grow up much sooner than they should, worrying when/where they will get their next meal, and wondering if they will ever feel truly wanted. I created this piece titled “A Million Dreams” for the upcoming Dee Norton Charity auction to represent the work they are doing to advocate for each and every child. I believe EVERY life is precious and created by God for a special purpose, and I am hopeful my art can help make even one of these little ones’ dreams come to fruition! •

Watch my latest video on why adult children of narcissists tend to become entangled in relationships, friendships and business partnerships with narcissists in adulthood. Although anyone can be a victim of a narcissist regardless of childhood upbringing and the responsibility of abuse falls 100% on the perpetrator, it’s important to evaluate patterns of trauma re-enactment of subconscious childhood wounding. This can be an extra layer of wounding for survivors of complex trauma to unravel on the healing journey. ♥️watch on YouTube.com/selfcarehaven ♥️ #narcissisticabuse #sociopaths #psychopaths #childhoodabuse #narcissisticmother #narcissisticfather #narcissisticparents #traumarecovery #traumareenactment #traumarepetition #complexptsd #complextrauma #childhoodabuse #childhoodabusesurvivor #childhoodabuseawareness

⁣⁣
I see you showing appreciation to the teachers, therapists, and medical professionals who serve your child with you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you rising early in the morning to do it all again after another chaotic night. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you when you’re hanging on to the end of your rope for dear life. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I know you feel invisible, like nobody notices any of it. I want you to know I notice you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you relentlessly pushing onward. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you keep choosing to do everything in your power to give your child the best possible care at home, in school, at therapy, and at the doctor. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What you’re doing matters. It’s worth it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
On those days when you wonder if you can do it another minute, I want you to know I see you. I want you to know you’re beautiful. I want you to know it’s worth it. I want you to know you’re not alone. I want you to know love is what matters most, and you have that nailed. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And on those days when you have breakthroughs, those times when the hard work pays off and success is yours to cherish, I see you then too, and I am proud of you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Whichever day today is, you’re worthy, you’re good, and I see you. — Author Unknown⁣⁣
