I know the title couldn't be any more vague.
What I'm talking about is abuse. Any and all types (there are a good amount).
My Webster's pocket dictionary defines abuse as:
1. use wrongly
Simple enough for me. That is really what it is when you get down to the root of it. I know a couple of people who have been abused in a variety of ways. I don't think one abuse is more serious than other (more violent? yes).
This is 2013 it should be well known by now that the lack of visible scars is irrelevant where abuse is concerned.
When one person uses their power over another person, in any way, to cause harm or to seek their own satisfaction...that is abuse.
Some forms of abuse that I'm aware of are:
All of these are very serious!
It's important to seek God for healing!Muy importante! He is the ultimate comforter!
If possible try to get some closure. Talk to someone, someone you can trust that is in the position to help you.
Do you know anyone who have been in this situation? What advice would you give?
Yes, it has been quite a break I took from blogging. I am happy to be back. I missed blogging.
How have you guys been? Let me know? It's been about 7 months...what's new?
I have been exploring some mountains. You guys know what I mean, up one minute, down another. But God has been good through it all. Isn't that just typical of Him, to stick around through the hard times?
I'm about to go to bed, but decided to mark the blog before I rest my head.
The title is in reference to an example my social science professor used when describing what it is scientist do and how they go about doing it. I won't go into that. I just thought it made for a nice blog post title.
Also mentioned in my SS class is the fact that we, the students, are going to be discussing controversial topics such as politics, social class, education, and religion, to name a few. When I heard that religion was among the lists of topics up for discussion, I immediately knew I was going to have to defend my position as a Christian.
Time to hit the Bible. :-)
Enjoy your day and remember we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us.
Is time management a real career option? It should be. It's hard work. I have a hard time assigning everything to a time and sticking to it. If I begin to feel overwhelmed with a certain task currently at hand. I choose flight over fight. I pretty sure I'm using this method out of context, but it seems as though I want to run away and do something less stressful and demanding (like blogging) until I can get myself together and get back to work. It sounds normal. As I re-read everything that I wrote, I'm thinking well, that's a pretty normal thing to do.
Anyway, I need to better manage my time. I have seen how well things go when everything is done within it's time slot. I can sleep well at night knowing that I've had a pretty productive day. I'll have to get back to that; I'm only getting older. I've been trying to become more productive ever since someone pointed out Proverbs 6: 6 to me. It reads, Go to the ant, you sluggard; observe it's ways and be wise. I felt insulted at first (obviously, right?) but then I realized that was something that I truly needed to hear. I still don't wake 5am every morning and have a productive hour until 10pm when I got to bed to do it all again, but I'm working on my own ways of being productive.
I hope you will too. Enjoy your day and remember to be wise
