"When a language dies, the world it was generated from is broken down too."

"After a lifetime of beatings, going hungry, standing in a corridor on one leg, and walking in the snow with no shoes for speaking Inuvialuktun, and having a heavy, stinging paste rubbed on my face, which they did to stop us from expressing our Eskimo custom of raising our eyebrows for ‘yes’ and wrinkling our noses for ‘no’, I soon lost the ability to speak my mother tongue.  When a language dies, the world it was generated from is broken down too."  

Mary Carpenter, 1995

Love should make you feel happy, confident, secure and safe. Love should never hurt. Love should not make you feel sad, angry, sick, afraid, guilty, or worthless. If this is how your relationship makes you feel, then you need to take a closer look at what you are experiencing. The first step to healing the harm caused by relationship violence starts with YOU.

You do not have to take these steps alone. You should know that …
Bullet GreenIt’s not your fault
 
Often, victims of violence feel that they have done something to cause the abuse. However, it is never your fault if someone abuses you.
Bullet GreenThere are people who care
 
Find your allies – you have family members, relatives, friends and service providers who can help you if you are experiencing abuse. Even if you feel alone, know that you are not – and that people are ready to help you.
Bullet GreenAll abusive behavior is WRONG …sometimes it is against the law
 
Get the protection you need for you and your children. If necessary, call on the appropriate authorities and people for help.
Bullet GreenIt’s okay to reach out for help
 
Dealing with abuse is confusing and sometimes we feel ashamed when we are dealing with this type of situation. It is difficult and reaching out for help is the first step to changing your situation. It is not a sign of weakness to ask for help.
Bullet GreenYou can restore the harmony of mind, body, spirit and emotion when you take the healing journey
 
Find the things and the people that will help you on your journey, e.g. learning about healthy relationships; people you can talk to; your church or traditional spirituality; a walk in the woods; doing the hobbies and things you love to do. Take time to nurture yourself.
 
You can smile again!

I’m laying in my bed with a gin & tonic, in my undies, Macaco spinning, and a good book. I kinda don’t want to leave my room.
