To the Woman who has given 2Much


To the woman who has given too much.
To the woman who has no idea how she will keep going like this, every day.

I see you.

I see how exhausted you are.
I see your desire to run for the hills without a care in the world.

And I know that if you did so,
the world which you have created,
would collapse, without you.

So, of course, that is not an option.

And I know, just how oppressive the weight of that can be.
How suffocating it is.
How scary that feels sometimes.

And I also know, how grateful you are for this load you carry.
For it’s everything you need and yet all that consumes you.

And that’s ok.

It is okay to feel weary, even when the weight is that of your blessings.
It is still heavy to carry.

There is no space for shame in that load of yours.
No space for guilt, no space for perfection.
Set those down.

Lighten your load of those things.

Next, take out the need to conform to others’ expectations.
And gather up all the past mistakes. And the worries for the future.

They can all go.

Lastly, the spaces you have just made should be filled with rest, for rest is very much doing.
And then add in your joy.

And whatever space is left, leave it there.

Ready for new things, which will show up as soon as they see their space waiting.

It’s high time.

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 ..
