Rape may be the ugliest of the four-letter words. One in five of all women experience sexual assault. That’s almost 20% of the female population. It’s the woman that delivers your mail, your college professor, the cashier at your grocery store or maybe it’s you. But there’s another word that is just as powerful, it’s hope. Here on A Woman’s Soul: Restored, we’ll be talking about hope. We’ll be talking about how that assault does not define you – or dictate your future, that you should not feel shame, and that you have the potential and deserve to find all of the joy that you are due. You’ll learn to reclaim your power, to believe in you, and rise up with confidence and spirit.
We have been led into thinking that, if enough time passes by, we will be ok.
Time can be our disfunctional friend and having that status means that we have to know how to deal with our friend. Dates can be triggers for memories. We can relate to a date of a traumatic event and it can put us in a bad place.
As that date approaches, we can experience mental and psychological changes. We may cannot explain it but we definately experience it.
This week, Latonia discusses dates in time and the effect it can have on us. The significance of the date that a traumatic event happens stays engrained in us. We do not have to suppress it but we do need to manage it!
