Life will support you with grace and serendipity - thank you Gabrielle Bernstein

God, Life or the Universe, takes care of us. We are part of a benevolent encompassing all which supports us. I love Gabrielle Bernstein books, notably The universe has your back and May cause Miracles.

I repeat that sentence like a mantra: “I do trust the universe“. When I have only tears in my eyes and feel like I cannot breathe anymore, I repeat it agin, silently, to myself. Everything is going to be well my friend, my sister.

#book review about domestic #violence “Power and Control: Why Charming Men Can Make Dangerous Lovers” by Sandra Horley

#book review about domestice #violence "Power and Control: Why Charming Men Can Make Dangerous Lovers" by Sandra Horley - Claire Samuel

I was recommended the book “Power and Control: Why Charming Men Can Make Dangerous Lovers“, by Sandra Horley, when I was granted a place in a refuge with my children. I am following-up of my post “Why abused women do not leave?” with this brilliant book. Written by a woman who knows what she is talking about, it helps everyone to understand the complexity of domestic abuse.

Why abused women do not leave? Emotional abuse versus physical abuse?

Why abused women do not leave? Emotional abuse versus physical abuse? - Claire Samuel

In some countries, a note from the doctor listing the wounds is mandatory to file a complaint against an abuser. It is evolving. Hence, violence sometimes does not leave any marks. Does that mean, as a consequence, that emotional and/or psychological abuse and violence are less than physical violence? Not so sure. Quite the contrary, because the last one cannot occur without the first one. Moreover, some think that emotional abuse is worse because, on one hand, it does not show on the victim’s body and, on the one hand, it traps the woman into an invisible prison from which it is very difficult to leave, if an exit is even possible. Such a paradox is a reason for writing my book, which I am translating into English at the moment (November 2017). If you read French, it is already published. My aim is to demonstrate that violence, in any form, can kill.
