Why Elder Women Are So Dangerous

And what makes the old woman so dangerous…

Is it perhaps that she is not likely to play nice, she is not likely to say the words you want to hear just because you want to hear them.

She is more likely to tell you what she fiercely believes, her truth, regardless of how that makes you feel about her.

She now hears the voice of instinct more clearly and she is loathe to ignore it.

Her body, which once had the capability to bring forth new life, has changed.

It is now her soul that brings forth new life, new thoughts, new wisdoms.

There are wrinkles in the oddest places, and they are caught in the side glance of her eyes.

She sometimes thinks about the beauty that she used to be, and knows that beauty is still within her, even if not everyone sees it anymore, she remembers.

She is not heartless, she is more caring than you can ever realize.

You probably will not realize it, until you become a dangerous old woman as well.

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 ..
