Why Does She Continue to Stay?

The priority to help women in abusive relationships is to let them maintain power and control in their decision making.  They already have a partner telling them what to do and when to do it.  So don’t be that friend, family member or resource that’s barking orders at them.  Instead, be that support system that they need in that moment and crisis and respect whatever decision they make, even when you don’t agree with it.  Call the national domestic violence hotline (800)799-7233 for more resources and information specifically for your city, town or state.

Springing into Your New Relationship.

Challenge yourself to get out more to find new interesting people to date.  Don’t go to your regular spots that you hang out at for coffee or for brunch with your friends.  Go to new places because usually, you will meet your mate in places that you wouldn’t typically be at.  Just make sure you aren’t up tight and let loose a little bit.  The world has changed so be safe and date responsibly.

I disregarded his feelings because in my pain I wanted to be understood without any thought of what I was doing to him. It took a really good male friend to one day flat out tell me “just because I’m a man doesn’t mean my feelings are any less than yours”. In that moment I realized I needed to take accountability for my own hurt ridden actions. Sistahs many of us hurt, and no one is arguing that…but we must give what we expect. We must heal, and realize sometimes we get it wrong, and we must hold ourselves accountable. If we don’t, we are no better than those we speak against.

He Need to Know.

As mothers it is very important that we are fair to our children. This means giving them a fair opportunity to have a positive relationship with their father. Granted there are situations whereby men will decide they don’t want to be a part of the child’s life, as some women have also, and that has to be handled in a manner to protect the child as much as possible.

Mom is Not On-Call 24/7.

The first team your child will be a part of is their family, and you must drive the concept of teamwork home for them. Love your children with all your heart, but demand that they acknowledge who you are and learn to treat you with love, respect, and kindness.

Check on Your Strong Friend.

The sisters that stand by us no matter what we face, nor what they are dealing with, are a true blessing to our life. Never allow her to forget how much of a blessing she is to you, her family, and her community.
