Sharing the Journey

No Justice

I would like to share two blog articles from my friend, L.  The first one is personal and precious to me, and I appreciate it SO much.  L knew I was having a bad day — she could hear it in my voice.  She readily admitted that she didn’t know what to do to help me, but the next morning, I found her post.  THIS is what friendship is all about, and what survivors can do to help each other:

For A Friend

God bless her — she’s a TRUE friend, even if she is a Rep…. Never mind.  🙂

I found her other post to be quite profound, and it’s worth a look.

A Psychopath Relationship

Be sure to watch the video L includes.  It’s a Croatian ad campaign against domestic violence.  (Not all abusers are psychopaths.)  Many of us who have close encounters with psychopaths have found ourselves the victims of domestic violence (I did).  Some of us fare worse and end up dead (that could have been me).  But other psychopaths do not resort to physical abuse so they don’t tarnish their treasured facade.  Regardless, survivors carry the unseen emotional scars.  The emotional scars can’t necessarily be seen, but we know they are there.  We struggle against them every step of the way.  As you watch the video, notice how the physical batterings mirror and are a metaphor for the emotional scars that can’t be seen.

Thank you, L, for the gift of your friendship.  For some reason, L doesn’t think she has anything interesting to say.  I beg to strongly differ.  Her bailiwick is abuse within the legal system, and for anyone caught up in that quagmire, she has a LOT to say.  Psychopaths can and do exploit the legal system to carry out their intent to do harm.  Please “like” and follow her posts if you find yourself exploited by a psychopath using the legal system for cover.

About DogDharma

Dog Dharma is written by a human who loves dogs and who believes dogs have attained enlightenment. The human behind Dog Dharma came from humble origins, has faced many trials, enjoyed many adventures, and taken a path less traveled. He claims no special privilege or expertise, and remains humble. Dog Dharma‘s author has learned a few things along the way, and has much yet to learn. He has been told by many people that he has a talent for writing, and aspires to write a book, but is a little too lazy and disorganized, so his blog will suffice for now. He opens a window into his life in the hope that some of his words may be of comfort, some may be a beacon or warning, and perhaps he will connect with like-minded souls. Everything shared comes from a place of openness and honesty, but with no claim that he possesses the Truth. People and places mentioned should be taken as pseudonyms. In many cases, details may be an amalgamation of actual events disguised to protect the “innocent.” Nothing written is to be taken as actual fact, but as the author of Dharma Dog‘s limited understanding. From the mouths of the Beatles: In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

    My friend, L, isn’t on WordPress, but she’s the best of the best. One of the reasons I continue to say that support from survivors is so critical. FWIW, she knows all about that forum you have “problems” with.
