Money Problems = The BIG 'D"

Here I am at at a public speaking engagement called the Networking Mixer where I briefly talked about domestic violence. NB - I do apologise for the poor footage as the reception on the night was poor. I addressed the following key points: 1 ) what is domestic violence? 2) how does domestic violence start? 3) what are the myths of domestic violence? 4) effects of domestic violence on the sufferer? 5) My own story of getting out of a violent relationship?  I attribute the cause of domestic violence in my relationship to be deeply rooted in the severe money issues we had. So what is the solution? 1) Seek professional financial help and solve the root of the problem. 2) Seek professional help with managing one's emotions 3) Don't repeat the same mistakes. 4) Consciously find ways to heal. 5) And if all else fails? 6) Get out of there for the sake of your security and sanity - especially if kids are involved. I was asked the question - so how and w

He Pulled A Knife On Me!!!

Hello readers and supporters alike. I hope that you have been doing quite well. As promised a few days ago, here is a video sharing my story with you. When you live with or marry someone who later becomes someone that you don't recognise, their actions will be one of the first things that is noticeable. Their behaviour becomes unpredictable - sometimes even to the point of wondering whether they have lost their mind. I live to tell the tale, as there are simply no words in the dictionary to fully describe how I felt. The heart of man can be so so evil. How can a man who professes to love his wife suddenly see her as an object to control and abuse? Perhaps that man was always like that and simply suppressed their feelings long enough. I'll drop my pen for now and we'll catch up very soon.

10 Reasons Why I Stayed In An Abusive Relationship

Howdy and what have you been up to lately? Have you missed the videos? I sure have missed them. The videos will be back soon, so look out for the video on the topic of this post. Yes, I made my own excuses as we always find a good excuse as to why we need to stay in an abusive rather than get out of it. Although I do not advocate leaving a relationship over a little argument or misunderstanding, but I wholeheartedly advocate fleeing an abusive relationship where you live and any dependents lives are in grave danger. If you do not escape, you will forever blame yourself and the guilt alone can quite easily cause you much more anguish than the abusive relationship. I hope you will stick around and watch the video on my reasons for staying - although I have since left the relationship. The next blogpost/video will be an interesting topic and I will be offering a FREEBIE to tie in nicely with the topic of this post. Thanks so much.

What Is My Personal Story About Domestic Violence

Hi and how are you doing today? Can I assume that it's been a good one for you today? If not, you can use the comment box below to rant a little. I won't mind as I know that there are days you just want to scream out. So, today, we are taking a break from the videos and I'm posting instead. I want you to know that just like you, I have a story to share - and share I will. As a sufferer of rheumatoid arthritis(RA) which affects the dexterity in my hands, videos and live streaming works much better for me. Believe it or not, I also type at the speed of lightning - as I learnt to type about 30 years ago using the old fashioned typewriter(also learnt shorthand...although I doubt anyone still uses shorthand these days). Therefore, even though we are taking a break from the videos, I will be posting a video of my personal story. Look out for the video. I am wishing you a great day from the very bottom of my heart and thanks for being here with me. NB - maybe one d

Toxic Relationship - Get Out Of It PLEASE

Hello everyone, welcome back to another video and I hope you are enjoying these videos. I would love to hear your feedback on the videos. It means a lot to me to interact with you and despite my ordeal with domestic violence, I am extrovert and I love networking with people. It is the one thing that I was able to keep hold of during that horrible period of my life - although it wasn't enough to keep me sufficiently sane. I thank you sincerely from the very bottom of my heart for taking time to watch the video. I'm sharing my story to help at least 1 person out there.
