    GOD's [Guiding Our Daughters] Blog

    in Women

    Women and children are victimized at alarming rates, and most assaults occur domestically. We are taught by examples both blatantly and subliminally, to keep home matters quiet, to avoid the possibilities of even more dire effects. We wear cosmetics to cover scars, whether than repair our foundations to heal wounds. We dress either too conservatively, or loosely, disguising and/ or trying to fit in. We keep secrets; safeguarding things that are, or should be prohibited, as if making the violation taboo will make it stop, vanish or erase from memory. And worst of all... We are often so programmed by society to hate ourselves (our images, our voices, our lineages, and our race) that we subconsciously hate each other, thus passing on the torch of emptiness. We compare and judge each other; the prettiest is admired, but loathed simultaneously. The wealthy or happy are envied with contempt. We even go as far to BLAME OURSELVES for the abuse that absolutely, no one, ever, deserves. Well, we need to WAKE-UP!!! It's time to see the significance in ourselves and each other. It's time to disrobe of the disillusion that we have to be competitive, secretive, envious and at fault of abuse. Plain and simple…We need to Stand-Up and Up-Lift each other! Man, Woman and Child!! But since children and women are the most vulnerable… Let’s all take a stand in helping each other thrive, by sharing our experiences for wisdom and strength. Let’s lookout for our children and practice accountability instead of division. Let’s reflect the GOD within our souls. YES – the GOD within our souls, by being loving, nurturing, empathetic and protective.

    Pain Awareness Month Series Session 4-- BASIC RIGHTS part 1 Dignity

    in Current Events

    Just because you’re a person in pain or disabled does not mean that you are less of a person. While the public "TV" view of those with pain, disabilities or special needs is championed there is a different application given to us every day. Where it is fun to do a social event for us and get all kinds of credit from other "normal" people, when it comes to the everyday care for a majority of those with pain we are not considered worth the extra effort needed to take care of us in a busy world.

    In a busy world you must take responsibility for your own care.

    You need to know what can help you, whiners are not listened to because they are more fixed on their troubles rather than the solution to their problems. With so many individuals in need and a major portion of those individuals positioning themselves for a pity party that is difficult to sort out what is being said to healthcare providers.

    Healthcare providers need proactive patients that know who they are, that understand their own situation before they get to the office to be one of many individual patients.

     That said; we do have a set of basic rights that provide healthcare professionals tools to provide better service, better care to us.

    We will talk about the three kinds of how to act assertive at the same time we talk about our basic rights..

    Assertiveness acts in a non-hostle way, is not aggressive.....Assertiveness does not hold back- never acts in a non-assertive way, is not aggressive

    Good Assertiveness  ---   states positively, affirming, declares with assurance
