Interrupt The Pattern…

17 Jun

So many of us were born into dysfunction, so many of us still live, breath and accept dysfunction as the norm unfortunately not being able to recognize or even call it out its name. 
So many of us inflicted, deeply scared mentally, emotionally some physically, by hurts that were not even ours to begin with, born to parents and into families that are unable to see or acknowledge their level of dysfunction. 
So many of us have and will continue to repeat the cycle of dysfunction giving to our children what we ‘got’ withholding what was withheld and the perpetual cycle remains becoming the damning gift that keeps giving…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~BUT~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How do we break cycles, interrupt patterns and create change?! 
Acknowledgement being the first step, being able to recognize dysfunction, being able to uncomfortably sit/stand in dysfunction, being opened to feel (why are we so afraid to feel?!) yes, it will hurt, it will not feel good, it will be overwhelming, you may cry some like myself will bawl, but in order to release it, you have to first recognize it, accept it, be willing to work through it creating change and then release it, yes, let it go! 
Releasing dysfunction, creating shifts, adaptation to new and healthier patterns may result in the release or letting go of some habits and people including family, relatives, friends, associates that no longer serves us. Be reminded, some people are blinded unable to see or accept dysfunction it’s the only thing they identify with, its rooted and embedded in the fabric of who they are and that’s ok but for me I’m releasing, letting go and slowly but surely saying farewell to that which no longer serves me. 
 Refusing to pass on to my offsprings the dysfunction I was born into, bore witness to, I received, I mimicked, I learned, patterned, identified with and repeated. I am creating a new normal, change MUST come! I am tired, yes, I grew weary of trying to figure it out to make sense of it, or understand it. To each their own but dysfunction no longer serves me, there is another way, a better way and even if there isn’t I’ll create a way… Larissa
Enjoy your Saturday my lovelies. Be blessed. Love you!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Sexually abused children who aren’t believed or don’t receive help are more likely to have long-term problems with:

*Trusting themselves and others
*Self-confidence (due to unresolved guilt/shame)
*Mild to serious mental health problems
*Romantic/sexual relationships as an adolescent and adult
*Increased vulnerability to future social trauma…

Yet so many are still of the belief that being sexually abused as a child is no big deal! To those foolish enough to think this I say go educate yourselves!!

The list of cause and effects after such trauma (CSA) is never ending if a child is not helped, these issues carries to adulthood…
