she find the passion that is missing or will she continue to hide
behind her computer screen?  





Justine

I feel so bad for Sophie.
Craig’s abusive behaviour explains her fragile nature.
There is no excuse for abuse of any kind. Our world is filled with it and it seems like everyone is a victim and everyone is an abuser. Bully’s are everywhere, online and off. In the schools, the workplace, the home, on the roads, in the shopping malls, everywhere.
Were there always this many abusers, this many different kinds of abuse or is it all psychobabble and victimization? Did history’s lack of reporting and overlooking of the abuser’s behaviour in favour of status quo, hide widespread abuse or are we more abusive?
What is abuse?
Is someone abused when another person calls them a name? Makes them feel bad? Gets mad at them? Criticises them? The majority of women claim to have experienced abuse. Have they or are they, like some believe, being overly dramatic entitled princesses who didn’t get their way? Abuse is too serious of a topic to be dismissed.
A person can be abused physically, mentally, emotionally, verbally, financially, and sexually. Unless the abusive act is extreme, it’s not always black and white. What is abuse to one person may not be abuse to another. Can abuse be quantified? Should it be?
Some people endure years of abuse and don’t display victim behaviour due to a strong inner strength and others, just the hint of abusive behaviour offends and damages their sense of self and wellbeing. When is an action damaging abusive behaviour? And is it the act or the perception of the act that classifies the action as abuse?
Will my brain stop asking these questions and let me sleep?
