Gatekeeper vs Bridge Builder

“The gatekeeper believes that there is not enough to go around, therefore the gate has to be closed to some. The gatekeeper decides on a set of criteria to “weed out” the unworthy, they will be excluded, they will not have access as it is reserved for an élite. The gatekeeper is a lover of quick right/wrong tests, easy distinctions support the justification of a “no entry” decision.

The bridge builder, on the other hand believes in offering a helping hand to give access even where there are barriers to be overcome. The river may look too wild to cross but the bridge builder has the ideas and ingenuity to assist. The bridge builder has an abundance mindset, there’s plenty for everyone, you just have to know how to get to it.” ~Teresa MacKinnon

“Involving an entire family in their stupid gate keeping scheme is ridiculous and dysfunctional. The gate keepers will learn that their children will jump that gate some day and unleash a feary like they never saw coming. Grandparents—keep up the good fight, stay strong, and lean on each other….like the redwood trees!!!” ~Lucy Augustson

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
