Have You Ever Temporarily Lost Your Confidence? #Makeovers

Which side looks more confident? Even subtle changes can make a world of difference in your outlook!

Which side looks more confident? Even subtle changes can make a world of difference in your outlook!

You know the tell-tale signs of a dip in self-confidence: slow or poor decision making, feeling of dread and the instinct to retreat from any type of challenge. We ALL experience these feelings every now and then. Sometimes it happens for no apparent reason, but often, it is the result of some exterior event such as loss of a job or divorce/break up. These are real problems that need to be worked through internally. However…you can speed the process and give it a boost from the outside… that’s right, I’m talking “MAKEOVER”~!

I know a lot of people think that makeovers, makeup, fashion, etc. are shallow, but have they considered how important it is to “act as if”? This is probably not a new phrase to you, but it is no less magical upon rediscovery! The best advice I can give someone who is sad for no apparent reason is to “act as if” they are happy. This is not the same as “put on a happy face”, which has the connotation of faking for the benefit of others. “Acting as if” is for your own personal benefit to retrain your brain, to form the new neuropathways you need to function in a more balanced way. Your brain needs repetition to learn new ideas and change the chemicals that rule your emotions.

While much of this is indeed done in thought, it can be sparked by changes on the exterior and certainly reinforces the idea that you are happy. To those naysayers who feel that caring about your skin, appearance, looks is a shallow or vain practice, I would say, “Get a haircut!” After your new ‘do, you will notice SOMETHING. It might be a little bounce in your step or just the fact that you look into the mirror more to check it out. Looking into the mirror is an excellent time to do some reinforcing thinking and self-talk that will keep you well on your road to happiness. I am in no way suggesting you should stare at yourself all day in the mirror or that all women must wear makeup or that all men should not – these are all personal choices and should be respected as such. I am merely suggesting that taking pride in your appearance is not a shallow action. It has real and lasting benefits to boost your self-esteem and should be respected as such. You know your brain is playing a tape constantly forming neuropathways, why not help determine where they go!

Domestic Violence Takes Many Forms….

silenced

It can be when someone:

  • Puts you down, says mean things, yells, plays mind games
  • Blames you for their behavior
  • Threatens to leave or take the children away from you
  • Isolates you from your friends and family
  • Doesn’t let you have a job, controls money and bank accounts, refuses to pay bills or buy food
  • Takes away phone or car keys
  • Treats you like a servant, makes all decisions, makes you ask permission
  • Watches everything you do, jealous, checks car mileage
  • Hits, chokes, pushes, slaps, holds or ties you down
  • Threatens or does hurt you, the children or the pets
  • Destroys your property
  • Forceful or unwanted sex or sex acts
  • Won’t let you sleep

Plan ahead for a quick and safer escape

  • Pack extra clothes and personal supplies for you and your children
  • Set aside an extra set of car keys, money and copies of important papers for you and the children: Birth certificates, social security numbers, financial papers, federal tax returns, health documents and insurance policies
  • Leave extra clothes, supplies and papers with someone you trust
  • Try to leave the house everyday at a set time, i.e. get mail, and walk the dog. When you are ready to leave, it won’t look suspicious
  • Plan where you will go, how you will get there. Rehearse your plan.

No one deserves to be hurt. It’s not your fault. Had enough apologies, promises or excuses?

abuse

Gather local resources to call and go for help of the following types:

  • 24 hour help
  • Crisis and support line
  • Counseling and therapy
  • Shelter for victims and children
  • Court and legal help
  • Intervention for batterers
  • Children’s services
  • Help with sexual assault

abuse2

Search for county resources

  • Police 911
  • Child Abuse/Neglect
  • Vulnerable Adult Abuse/Neglect
  • Sexual Assault Hotline
  • National Domestic Violence Helpline
  • Hospital Social Work

Please re-read 1st paragraph. If any of these things are happening to you, it is your responsibility to your self and your children and pets (if possible) to get you all out safe and sound whether you are male or female, no matter what your relationship status.

Last Days of Leo

The last days of Leo and I thought my heart would break,

I’d love to run away from you if I could stay awake.

Please don’t ring the phone again, middle of the night

Apologies so secret, they’re at their best polite.

Even if I tell you it’s ok, you know it’s not.

We’re stuck in this together; fruits here will surely rot.

To see another summer, I know I have to go,

We can’t live together through another winter’s woe.
