  • I'm feeling the need to revisit Isolation, the first in quilt in my Domestic Abuse series. Isolation is often the first method an abuser uses to gain control over his/her partner. 
Domestic violence doesn’t look the same in every relationship because every relationship is different. But one thing most abusive relationships have in common is that the abusive partner does many different kinds of things to have more power and control over their partner.

In her book Verbal Abuse Survivors Speak Out: On Relationship and Recovery, Patricia Evans defines 15 types of verbal abuse:

Withholding (refusing to talk to or acknowledge the victim)
Countering (always telling the victim that he or she is wrong)
Discounting (not taking into account the victim's perceptions)
Verbal abuse disguised as a joke
Blocking and diverting (thwarting the victim's attempts at communication)
Accusing and blaming
Judging and criticizing
Trivializing (telling the victim his or her concerns are inconsequential)
Undermining (eroding the victim's confidence)
Threatening (implying physical harm through a fit of rage or though an unspoken threat, like punching the wall)
Name calling
Forgetting (regularly "forgetting" appointments, agreements, or incidents)
Ordering and demanding
Denial (denying all abusive behavior)
Abusive anger (frightening the victim with repeated angry outbursts)

  • It’s so sad and strange to me that I fell in love with a psychopath. It’s even sadder that so much time was wasted. I believe God controls what happens to us all and I think, is that what was really in his will for me? My purpose was to fall in love with a mad man? And what happens next? Day by day we live in what we think is our purpose, but do we really know? And how do I listen to God.. I don’t know which path he wants me on. Is there a sign I should follow because my own heart never seems to steer me in the right direction. I had given triple what I should have to a man that cared about himself and only himself at the end of the day. 
Whatever he made it look like wasn’t what it was. He fake cared and fake loved. And now what? I know I have to find another man because I don’t want to be alone forever. 
It’s hard, really, really hard out there. 
There is so much meaning to be shared in our lives and the thoughts cross my mind of what I did with my meaning. I gave it away to an artificial thing posing as my love. Reality is striking when it hits. Reality is what the psychopath wants to take you out of. But we cannot escape our reality for long.

  • Some days are best spent with gorgeous souls celebrating sweet little babies.🌟❤️ I spent the day becoming a Godmother to another beautiful boy today and It made me think about how much I wish with all my heart that every child was as loved as he is; surrounded by a network of love and kindness. What a world we would live in if every single child was supported, celebrated and loved how they should be. A world of happy adults growing to their full potential. ❤️🌟 As we know this isn’t the case. Many children suffer at the hands of the people who should be protecting them the most. I feel very humbled and proud to be invited to ambassador for the @yogagirlfoundation helping vulnerable children suffering from the result of abuse. There will be more posts to come about their mission and how we can collectively make a difference. But in the mean time go and follow their page, send them a donation, read the ways they are already raising awareness and money to change each child’s whole world one little soul at a time. Together, small commitments and contributions can move mountains. 🌟

  • NEW BLOG ALERT - In this week's blog post, we're discussing the covert form of abuse known as joking. This kind of abuse may take the shape of backhanded compliments or making fun of the victim, their appearance, or something they say, then say something like, “Just teasing.” This type of hostile joking is always at the other person’s expense. To learn more click the link in our bio. ⠀
⠀
Have you ever experienced joking or know someone who has? This type of abuse is difficult to identify, which is why we provide resources to help everyone recognize abuse in all its forms.

  • Ok friends need your help: 
Facebook and Insta have been reducing my exposure for some time now. 
Its strange, because my book and work is out there to inspire people; showing how it really is possible to get through all kinds of adversity in life, including abuse, loss, death, betrayal and cancer. I got through that when given only 6 months to live; and how to come out the other end a healthier, wiser, happier person with a fulfilling life. They say I’ve gone against their community standards but I do not post anything to do with nudity, guns etc. Which are part of that. And All intellectual rights I own. So I’m baffled. I’ve reposted an article not written by me and they don’t approve,  but at least warn me before taking action, don’t just come down like a steam roller straight away squashing all the ability to reach people. That’s disappointing. 
My book or articles I write do not go against these standards, but there is no one to talk to to rectify this. Instead theve taken punitive measures against my fb & Instagram page, reduced exposure, so many are not getting my posts,  as part of the punishment taken by Facebook against my page here. 
I tried endlessly to contact Them. I tried to contact their Fact checkers whose email was provided on Facebook for such matters, and who use Snoopes to check out articles. They say I posted nudity which I’ve Never done, ridiculous!  Anyway they have reduced distribution of my page because of that and it’s not true so whose putting out fake news now? Out of nearly 4000 people who asked to  follow my FB and this page, almost overnight I lost so many.  It is incredibly difficult to get help or answers from Facebook to rectify their mistake. 
If you read articles, book, or posts  I’ve written please help by commenting below if you think Facebooks fact checking has a mistake and you feel this my articles and book is actual a service to people. 
I do own the intellectual rights to my book, including the Foreword by the one and only Muhammad Ali World Champion Sportsman with all the documentation to prove it.  Really appreciate your help. Thanks with love Suzanna❤️ #lifeistooshort #onelife #cancersupport

  • It’s a distgusting, disturbing, pathological condition. It killed me inside for too many years. And now my ex’s psychopathic father ‘Senior’ is repeating the abuse, but 10x worse than his son. He has labeled me “lazy” because I stand up for what is right, take care of my kids and for keeping him accountable for his word. He falsely diagnoses me with psychiatric disorders because I defend myself to his lies and verbal abuse. I have called him out on all of his crimes and he denies them and then stops talking shit about me for a little while.. and then he back to attack me for no reason at all. He has projected his mental illness and psychopathy onto me because he cannot stand being held accountable for his words and actions. Can you imagine hurting somebody so badly and then twisting the story around on the other person? I know I could never do that. It’s deeply pathological and unfathomable. I shiver and my heart races when I go to check my emails in fear of verbal attacks. One psychopath is gone only to be faced with another one. I have to be in contact with him for my kids, obviously otherwise I wouldn’t be. 
I have repeatedly told him to refrain from the abusive comments and he doesn’t care. 
I noticed whenever I make a point or say something logical, he lashes out to tell me I am crazy. This whole situation is trauma all over again.
