keith_diarmit Ah yes...the joys of #moving. So as I recall, we #decoupaged everything in the #70s -- found this #creepy #charm made by #me as a #proud #webelo #onmyway to becoming the youngest #eaglescout in history. But there were #mosdef #clues in this photo --- #abusedchild #survivor #overachiever #linus #littleliney #kiki #kikidiarmit #1974 #cubscout #seamus #irishboy #irishmexican #gayirish #littlemick #paddy #instagay #instagood #woodwork 2w

beck.thompson There's no 'right' age. But I believe that earlier is better than later.
The counselor didnt know what to do with me. Apparently I was 50 years too early for her stats.
It's never too late to do something to improve your life so you can actually enjoy it.

beck.thompson I liken the effects of childhood abuse much the same as a jigsaw that's been put together the wrong way, having it smashed into a thousand pieces then trying to put it together the right way, without any instructions or modeling. 2mon

beck.thompson Break the cycle of abuse and violence by standing up and speaking out.
The culture of silence within families is what keeps the cycle going.
Pretending not to know what's happening or blatantly ignoring the signs or suspicions is cowardly behavior.
Children deserve better.
Protect them when they can't protect themselves.

beck.thompson The hardest walk is walking alone. But it also makes you the strongest.
I believe some of our best lessons and moments of growth are when we're forced to go it alone.

the_uncut_truth Child abuse is more than #bruises and #brokenbones. Other types of #abuse, such as #emotionalabuse and #neglect also leave deep lasting #scars. The earlier an #abusedchild gets #help, the greater chance they have to #heal and break the #cycle 4mon

beck.thompson Don't allow your wounds to turn you into a person you're not.
All behaviors and beliefs can be changed even if you've been taught or modeled otherwise. You don't have to continue holding onto beliefs that don't serve you, that made you feel less than you deserve or that were fed to you .change them to the ones you want to believe, that bring out your best, that empower you.
The behaviors you've been taught can also be changed. Behaviours are just habits and all habits can be changed.
It is a process and takes time but like anything, with persistence and determination, you will absolutely get there.
It's just important to never stop. Never give up on your journey of transformation.

Im talking about establishing boundaries and releasing yourself from the judgement you feel from your parents.
Time to take ownership and stop allowing the opinions, expectations and beliefs of your parents run your life.
