FAITH OF SUBSTANCE | Chris, __ . “I had my son and when I came back from the hospital everything was gone. . The man I was living with hadn’t paid the rent, took all of the furniture and the landlord locked up the apartment. As a newly single mother of two I was taken in by a couple from church until I could get back on my feet. I remember being so angry at everyone and everything, even God. But looking back I can see so clearly His incredible and unwavering faithfulness to me. . I was abused verbally and physically and convinced I couldn’t live without the father of my children. He made me believe that he was my everything and without him I wouldn’t survive. I never would have left on my own. I couldn’t have. But God was determined to rescue me. . As I slowly built a new life, it all started falling into place and I realized how God saved my life and put me in a place where He could save me. Isn’t that amazing? . God is always the same. We don’t know what's coming up, and things that come up are often unexpected for us, but God is always the same. He’s the same when we’re on the mountaintop and the same when we’re in the valley. He is faithful.” . #lesstalkmoresubstance . _____________________________________________________ . LESS TALK MORE SUBSTANCE is a new portrait series inspired by the Substance sermon series in 1 John. . . In a world of counterfeit joys and urban spiritual environments which often lean toward the superficial, we affirm the substantive power of the Gospel through these testimonies of our brothers and sisters who speak boldly to their encounters with the power of the living Christ. . Our God has come in the flesh. See Him, in these stories, for yourself. - Aletheia Creative Team.
I cant stress enough, to speak up to somebody you trust; to get away before it escalades; to owe it to yourself, you dont deserve poor treatment ❤️ #dv #dvawareness #domesticviolence #dvsurvivor #domesticviolencesurvivor #domesticviolenceawareness #staystrong #yourenotalone #standtogether #endabuse #betterroadahead #recovery #roadtorecovery #doingbetterwithoutyou #OTF
🚨 Long Post Alert 🚨 WARRIOR is what I like to call myself these days when anyone close to me finds out that I have been a victim to domestic violence.... I’m always the one my friends and family call strong and I never in a million years believed with my strength, attitude and personality I could have been in such an abusive and violent relationship but I was 😏through recent life trials and tribulations I’m deciding to share my story in hopes to give others strength to not only share there’s but also get away from a toxic relationship if there still in one. It’s not easy and everyday is a work in progress at least for me but I know this , love is never suppose to hurt you or degrade you or take everything that is you away. I loved a man that was a monster who took pieces of me, ruined friendships and even at a times caused issues with family...but I have to own it’s ok to hurt because of it and it’s also ok to ask for help. I will no longer let what he did to me define me or ruin what is ME!!! I am a WARRIOR, FIGHTER AND SUVIVOR!!! To those past or Present who have walked down this path and got out .....WE DID IT 🙏🏽WE DOING IT 💪🏽 I’M PROUD OF YOU. If anyone ever needs someone to talk to I’m here as well as you can contact the Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-SAFE Love y’all KeiKei ❤️🦄 #warrior #survivor #strongwoman #loveyourself #domesticabuse #domesticviolencesurvivor #domesticviolenceawareness #love #tbt #truthhurts #strongwomen #girlswholift #girlswithpiercings #bikinicompetitor #throwbackthursday

We will bring them out again this year and display them at many locations in Linn and Benton Counties to raise awareness about Domestic Violence. #tbt #CARDV #centeragainstrapeanddomesticviolence #linncounty #bentoncounty #domesticviolenceawareness
Men, flip the dialogue. Women are often abusive to their boyfriend or husband. Covert abuse can be difficult for the victim to identify because the perpetrator communicates in ways that are sly, vague, underhanded and confusing. #domesticviolenceawareness #cagedbywords #verbalabuse

Well at least @monicabrown and family tried it's just sad that she probably wanted the help but felt like it would only make things worse but I truly pray that the woman and any other domestic violence victims GET OUT!!! #domesticviolenceawareness #itsnotcool #abuseisnotlove #knowyourworth
You will never know your strengths until you’ve faced your struggles!!!
When you share your story it can be a form of release. It can be healing as well as helping others know they are not alone, your story is not shameful. When I started sharing my story it allowed others to feel comfortable sharing their story with me. I want SPEAK to be a movement as well as loving with color. I encourage you to share your story, if it’s not with me, with someone you feel safe with. I started with a local organization @hopealliancetx * * * * #speakyourstory #speakyourtruth #speakcosmetics #domesticviolenceawareness #cosmeticsforacause #lovedoesnthurt #domesticviolencesurvivor #lifteachotherup #encourageotherstospeak #thereishope #youarenotalone #inspireothers #liftthestigma
If not for yourself, for them!! Don’t let the casket closing be the only way you leave your abuser!! You deserve MORE and they do too. Know the signs, seek help, plan and if possible save.

Repost from @mtraumabond @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost Thanks @narc_turner for creating this heartfelt meme from a comment I made. It's so true though. Their actions and endgame absolutely deletes any and all meaning from all their deceitful words we were bombarded with while they were attempting to fill their empty well of a soul. They USE others peoples love and devotion for their selfish personal gain. Even when conning new supply he was lying to us both. So that proves that the only thing that changes in their life is their victim. oh and their looks, they get uglier and uglier every day and it kills them. #freefromabuse #thanksTrashCollector #NPD #npdawareness #narcissist #narcissisticabusesyndromeawareness #narcissisticabusesyndrome #domesticviolenceawareness #domesticviolence #abuser #loser #loserlawyer #liar #cheater #user #miscreant #moralturpitude #freedomFromTrash #freedom #noMoreLies #LifeisGood #itwasneverlove #thanksTrashCollector #myold problemsarenownyourproblems

Swipe -> PTSD is a disorder that is not recognised my many. It is common in persons who have experienced traumatic events such as natural disasters, fighting, violence, or any situation that that may be 'highly frightening'. Here are some facts about PTSD. #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtt #mentalhealth #motivation #mentalwellness #mindfulness #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #depression #anxiety #anxietyrelief #life #love #naturaldisaster #selfcare #selflove #selfhelp #domesticviolence #domesticabuse #domesticviolencesurvivor #domesticviolenceawareness #war #usarmy #trinidadandtobago #trini #trinidad
🧟‍♀️The pattern of abuse means we revolve around the person who uses abuse. We are groomed to respond to attain their ‘like’ no matter how irrational it is. A bit like social media. Both are unpredictable, not in our control and addictive! •• •• 👩🏻‍🌾Over time, our focus is so much on other/social media that we forget our own rhythms. We have a habit to attune to outside us as the reference point. This becomes our ‘normal’. We don’t follow our own deep felt intuition, instinct and fluctuations, and instead become ritualised inside the habit of being pleasing to other. We lose our identity and who we truly are... •• •• 🧟‍♀️It is time to interrupt the pattern. Thank the exhaustion, the confusion, the lack of desire and turn inward. Be still. Meditate. Or just breathe deeply in and out and focus on your breath through one part of your body. The thing with trauma is that it is hard to be still with ease. It’s hard to be in your skin. So if being still or meditating is not where you’re at, draw where you are at. Make a collage, paint it, write it... find symbols or images to represent the torment, the dark hole, the lost, the forgotten... this will unravel. You will get through this. •• •• 🧙🏻‍♀️I am in my own calling to go inwards, in response to a few big and challenging years. I too feel the unknown, feel confused and lost... when I try and do things the way ‘society’ expects... then I take a step back and remember my inner being and seek guidance. Sometimes it is through a breath or a thought to switch out of limiting way, other times it is after the release of a deep cry. Whatever is needed. There is no right or wrong way. There is just your way. •• •• 👩🏻‍🌾Are you listening to your inner being?
Wow, therapists, coaches, clients, and all persons. Check out the ✨Her Success Radio✨ podcast for a mind-expanding 3-Part series on “Patriarchy Stress Disorder”. Each of the 3 episodes are only 30 mins. In 90-minutes, you will experience a shift in the way you view your own mental health issues. As a trauma specialist, who has read many of the top experts on trauma and seen anxiety & trauma manifest in myself & most people on some level - I can say, this is the most helpful overview on trauma I’ve heard. Whether it’s anxiety, fatigue, stress, anger, sadness, low-self esteem, impostor syndrome, chronic health issues, you name it - most people, women and men, have been affected by thousands of years of intergenerational trauma. It’s in our DNA. We see the violence and the consequences in the news every day. I highly recommend these 3 podcasts. And I can’t wait for @drvaleriebaker to finish writing her book!✨🙌💐💗 . . . #intergenerationaltrauma #intergenerationalhealing #traumainformed #psychologytoday #wellbetogo #feministmovement #womenempowerment #womenentrepreneurship #anxietyrelief #latinawomen #domesticviolenceawareness #relationshipcoach #mentalstrength #lmhc #mentalwellbeing #counselingpsychology #levelup #advancedadulting #therapyworks #ptsdrecovery #abuserecovery #emotionalabuse #survivortothriver #therapynow #millennialmatters #couplescounseling #expert #minoritymentalhealth #abundancemindset #positivepsychology

#Repost @beyondpublishingcaribbean (@get_repost ) ・・・ According to police statistics , there have been incidences of domestic disputes and violence nearly every day with Barbados . An endemic of violent crimes aimed at women within the Caribbean and wider world has only seemed to worsen in recent times. To highlight this grave reality, we have collaborated with the us embassy to make this the next topic of the #crossroads series. Special shout outs to @officiallifeinleggings for their efforts at awareness and activism for women's rights. Along with the hundreds of different organisations who continue to fight the good fight.

Omg!! I'm in tears. But this time there tears of joy!!! When I just knew I wasn't gonna make it God said oh but you will!!! When I looked in the mirror and thought I was worthless God said but your worth is invaluable. When all I felt was pain God turned my pain into purpose for many!! This isn't a win for me it's a win for US!! I survived the beatings the stabbings the draggings the lies the tears and demonic forces. Three years ago I walked away from the darkness regrouped and readjusted. About a year and a half ago I created a platform for other women and men to share there stories, so they too can endure overcome and inspire Someone else to break the chains and the bondage. 4-20-17 BeatenNotBroken apparel was created. And as of 8/14/18 the United States made it official!! We are Survivors and together we are #BeatenNotBroken#apparelwithapurpose #endure #overcome #inspire #Domesticviolenceawareness

Understand opinions are not facts. Even facts can show untruth. Therefore I remain solid on my stance of using my situation to help myself and other women suffering silently. I’m not embarrassed nor ashamed. Actually very liberated and strong. Thanks to social media I have a platform to use my situation to empower, inspire and possibly save other women and children.
I miss these days. The days when I knew who I was. I knew what I wanted without a doubt. I was effortlessly happy. I wasn’t scared of the future or the unknown. I said what I felt without fear. I had confidence. But someone stole that from me. To feed their own ego. I started second guessing myself. I no longer trusted my instincts, and I still don’t. I’m tired. I’m tired of looking out for others before myself. I’ve tried my whole life to be a selfless person because that’s how I was taught. But now I’m thinking you have to be selfish in this world. At least to an extent. Or else people take advantage of you. Never let anyone steal your energy. It’s hard to gain back.
Let me break this down, the young girl you see is 7 months pregnant, the man you see punching her is her husband, he is asking her “WHERE IS MY LUNCH”. All those people you see watching are her neighbors and you want to know why no one is doing anything? Because she is FEMALE. do not fucking tell me our world doesn’t need FEMINISM, if you do not have anything to say shut the fuck up! I blame her parents because and her family members and I blame society, men are born entitled, women are born second class citizens! We need FEMINISM, we need to empower women, a world where this is okay is HELL. #feminist #feminism #domesticviolence #domesticviolenceawareness #staywoke #woke #women #humanrights #womenrights #genderequality
