#jealousy is witchcraft, its #witchery in every way.

#jealousy is a big #redflag

Show me a #jealous person and I can show you:

Their lies,

Manipulative behaviours,

How they undermine a person’s self-esteem,

How they isolate people,

They will do anything and everything to demoralise someone,

“Mental, psychological, or emotional abuse can be verbal or non-verbal.”

If you find yourself with jealous traits please seek help or get a mentor or coach to help you work on your self-development otherwise you will destroy yourself and others.

This is my lived experience. This was hard to share because it reminded me of how much I suffered.

#day6 #fear

Don’t ask the stupid question, ‘why doesn’t she leave?’ If it was that simple we wouldn’t be having #16daysofactivism

My encouragement is “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.” #orangetheworld #generationequality #16days

#day8 speaking at the 29th Annual Silent Domestic Violence Memorial March 2019.

#day9 Ruah (Picture attached)

A student travelling for education, Tinashe left a country known for violence only to find herself trapped in a “life of hell” in Australia.

The first time her partner became violent, it shocked her. He blamed it on drink; he cried; he apologised; and she forgave him.

But the violence continued for years until a lightbulb moment when Tinashe decided to leave once and for all.

As an advocate she now speaks out to stop violence against women.

“The moment you speak out, the shame you feel goes away because you’ve found a voice and you’re empowered as a person with control over your life.”

Psychological Effects of abuse “Practical Jokes” with Tinashe

So today, we thought we’ll share snippets from our pilot episode with Tinashe were she talked a lot about #DomesticViolence and the negative and psychological effects of practical jokes.

Tinashe Angeline La is an Author and an advocate against domestic violence and draws from her experience as a DV survivor.

#day11 #alcohol

What kind of a person do you become when you are intoxicated?

Do you go to sleep?

Do you flirt?

Do you get confident?

Do you become talkative and let all the secrets out?

Do you get agitated?

Do you become violent?

Do you get abusive?

Do you spend all your savings and forget your responsibilities?

Do you become fun?

If people have told you of some of the things you do that are not good, what have you done about it? What are you going to do about it?

“Have you, or someone you know, been affected by abuse?

The Support and Services Directory can help women who have experienced family, domestic or sexual violence to find the right support at the right time.

The services women need when they are currently experiencing, or have previously experienced, abuse can vary and it can be challenging to know what services are available.

You might be searching for yourself, a family member, friend or colleague- anyone who needs support.

This Directory contains the specialised Family and Domestic Violence Services that can be found throughout Western Australia as well as Sexual Assault Support Services, Legal Assistance Services, Women’s Community Based Health Services, and Men’s Programs and Supports. The Directory also includes Family and Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services for Children and Young People.”

After #day16

Family violence and abuse gets worse with the #festiveseason

*arguments over family gatherings

*couples separate over financial disputes (over-spending and debts)

*forced visitations cause disagreements

*tipsy people let loose their lips and bodies and everything else.

And so much more….be aware, be mindful, be careful.

DON’T BE SILENT WHEN YOU SEE VIOLENCE!
