What Did My Fist In Your Eye Have To Do With It?
THE GREAT FEELING OF ABUSE!!!
Well… not THAT kind of abuse in that animation.
This kind of abuse stems from being in something that you are too scared to come out of.
You are scared to do anything wrong because you know the outcome.
You are always on alert because you don’t know when you have to duck or cover your face.
You will either get talked down to OR beat the hell up.
That feeling of being useless and hopeless.
You want to run away, but you can’t because you are so used to that “feeling”.
It doesn’t always come as a slap or a punch.
You do not always have to be on the way to the hospital with a black eye or broken ribs.
Many of us suffer from abuse that we do to ourselves.
The way we speak to ourselves can be just as bad as any domestic violence police report.
Are addicted to your own abuse?
Do you know that you don’t need another person to abuse you?
I guess that is where “You can do bad all by yourself” started from.
We have been mentally slapping and punching the hell out of our self-esteem for a while now.
We play the victims entirely too much:
I will be alone *slap*.
That Wolf/Fox likes me… I think. So I will decipher signs and stress myself out *punch*.
I can’t look fresh to def like the others. *karate chop*
I think I am ugly. *choke*
My body isn’t as good as my competition. *body slam*
Have you noticed when things are going well, you start to look for something wrong?
You never want to just go with the flow and enjoy your peace?
It has to be always something…
But secretly, like I said, we like that feeling.
We will run our poor minds ragged and then after we have over-analyzed and over-done it,
we suddenly feel better until next time.
A lot of my poor Foxes out there run to a Wolf who will also do the same.
So you then have a tag team of bullshit that you associate with “love” and that “feeling”.
It got me to thinking about the domestic violence we inflict on our self-worth…
Are some of us just use to beating ourselves up since that is all we know?
And, will be ever find a happy place, move there, and never look back?
We all have insecurities and trust me, I know it hurts.
I have been there.
I think I put my self-esteem in ICU one time during 2001-08.
It can make your life more harder than it is.
So, I stated to wonder…
Haven’t you had ENOUGH?
