    Found this on Facebook & had to reshare.

    I spent over a decade in a relationship with someone who didn’t appreciate me. It feels amazing to be able to take time for me—reading, making art, meditating, blogging.

    Find what makes your soul sing, then DO the THING!

    Leading Social Change; Winter 2022; Portland State University; Blog Post #1; Domestic Violence

    This blog was created for the intention of posting for a Portland State University class called Leading Social Change, virtually led by Adjunct Professor Brandon Fielding. There’s a chance I may use this blog in the future for other Portland State University reasons. Group 6 is composed of: Berenice Alonso Hernandez, FengSheng Tam, Grace Julian, and Gloria Saepharn.

    Group 6’s problem that we will be discussing for the rest of Winter Term 2022 is domestic violence (DV), also known as intimate partner violence (IPV). Intimate partner violence/domestic violence is defined as abuse or aggression that occurs in a romantic relationship. What would probably not be discussed in the study is politics, unless it directly correlates with domestic violence.

    We’ll aim to look at the United States of America’s statistics and reports about how domestic violence plays a part in society. According to the CDC, millions of individuals are victims of violence that can be among any couple and doesn’t require sexual intimacy. “It might happen one time or happen many times over a period of years.” (“Prevent Domestic Violence in Your Community | CDC”)

    The CDC states that intimate partner violence is common and that “About 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 10 men have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime and reported at least one impact of the violence (like being concerned for their safety).” (“Prevent Domestic Violence in Your Community | CDC”) Psychological aggression is also one of the data points tracked. Intimate partner violence can be seen in youth, as well; it would be called teen dating violence (TDV), first experienced before the age of 18.

    There could be one of many you encounter throughout life that struggle with abuse at home or in the past. The CDC states that “All forms of intimate partner violence are preventable. Strategies to promote healthy, respectful, and nonviolent relationships are an important part of prevention.” In this aspect, they don’t explain how abusers can manipulate their victims and harm them in different manners. Whether an abuser is stalking, verbally or mentally harming, or physically abusing someone, the victim can be terrified to ask for help. “Couples-based approaches have historically been controversial in the field of IPV intervention, and most agree that treatment programs for couples where severe violence and fear are already occurring are not safe for survivors.” (Niolon et al.)

    The reason why it’s important that others are aware of domestic violence is because it can show up in almost any scenario at any point in time. If someone is at the store and a partner in a couple starts yelling at the other person, it could turn into something violent when they go home. If your friend is being psychologically abused and you’re aware of the signs, you’d want to help them, even if they didn’t know how to help themselves. I’ll go more in depth in future posts about how and what IPV involves.

    Overall, it’s about perspective and seeing how someone in need emotionally, physically, or mentally that may need intervention. Being aware of the signs of intimate partner violence may help in any personal, casual or professional situation. With the social impact of any IPV, it begs to question whether any impact or improvement has been made over the years. One improvement is “Domestic violence shelters and outreach programs that connect survivors and their families with an advocate provide the survivor with the opportunity to navigate and use community resources more easily than they might be able to on their own.” (Niolon et al.) To this effect, it’s one of a few solutions, but there is more that can be done to help people who want and need it.

    I’m working through three different books right now: The Daily Stoic, Get Even, and The Young Lords.

    I don’t think I realized just how much time and energy my ex consumed. For over a decade, I almost never had any time to read for pleasure.

    They’d call or text, and start spazzing out if I didn’t answer immediately.

    They also had this fucked up idea that we had to do everything together.

    And if I articulated an opinion they disagreed with, they didn’t respectfully disagree. They talked down to me, and sometimes berated me.

    It feels amazing to be able to pursue my interests, as I try to figure out where I stand in this world on my own.

    That last book, a history of The Young Lords, is especially important to me because my ex was a racist. Seeing the ways POC asserted themselves against oppressive capitalist institutions and white supremacy is kind of giving me the warm-n-fuzzies right now. 🙂

    Dear Heath [4]: Fucking moths

    Dear Heath [4]: Fucking moths

    Dear Heath, We all know my one hate. Bug Infestations. Not uncommon in the Australian canon as we all know. There were the German cockroaches that made their way from Sydney to Melbourne with us on your first deployment. I still gag thinking about it. Oh, and the constant flea infestations at the military house in Brisbane on the not so blissful Bliss St. And now. Mother-fucking-moths. I would…

    Reposted from @glennondoyle Hi loves I know we're still breathing but we're all dead inside right I was dead, a ghost. Until you @Glennondoyle Until I almost died at the hand of myself a few weeks ago in my lowest #CPTSD trigger. burning, crashing and dying episode yet. I listen to your podcast daily and I am up to the racists chapter in your #untamed book. I have to read it in shifts as every chapter creates huge change and transformation in me. I shaved my head completely afterward. Then I shaved my 4 year old daughter's head too as she has been asking for months but I was too scared of how she would be treated by other kids for being different. I'm not afraid anymore. She's glowing and more alive then ever, so am I and so is my relationship and my family and community - the colours of us all in us all are so blindingly vibrant. You are changing the world. One person at a time, flowing on to the next. You are undoing and aiding us to unlearn our conditioning. I created a blog as I cannot stop writing. It pours out of me and you are my biggest inspiration in that. You do things to me. Your mind. You've given me a gift I never knew I had but was always there inside of me. I've been dead for too long, I've been ignoring her neglecting her needs and desires to get the fuck out and escape her body cage I put her in. The one the world put her in. I've discovered I am a writer and I'm alive because of it. You led me here. I've got things to say and share. My voice is boundless. I just finished listening to your #wecandohardthings podcast on Is your relationship alive? I've had to replay it 4 times and will again as I am having #mingasms and couldn't be more fucking alive than I am in this moment. NOW. I am on fire, thriving, glowing, bright, unafraid and deliciously. ferociously #wild. I am finally living my life in my choices, my #authenticity, in my worth, my real (not imagined or conditioned) worth. My time is now. #therarerawrainbowwoman #wecandohard #survivor #childhoodtrauma #ptsd #ptsdsurvivor #blog #blogpost #blogger #dv #domesticviolence #bloggerlife #trauma #mentalhealth #sexualabuse #metoo #metoomovement #suicideprevention #cptsdawareness #cptsdsurvivor #cptsdwarrior #suicidalawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #bloggingmama #glennondoyle https://www.instagram.com/p/CYkfstIvyfM/?utm_medium=tumblr

    THIS [along with a reminder that “I’m sorry you feel that way,” isn’t an apology.
