  • I always have been a woman who try to defend the animals.I call them the voiceless children of the Earth and we have to be their voices.They must share the planet with us in harmony.I am against animal abuse in any form.However today a thought came to my mind and I opened my eyes to another type of abuse , human to human abuse.I became more aware that the cruelty is not limited to the animal kingdom but to the Human race.I read in the papers about parents abusing children,husbands abusing wife's ,wife's abusing husbands, teachers abusing students,jail wardens abusing prisoners etc.I wonder why men came to this world with such a capacity for cruelty.,
    On the other hand I believe that every game like tennis, needs two people to play and only one cannot play.The abuse in relationships had been studied and analyzed by many experts but my own is that we carry from childhood many traumas and we grow up with a low self esteem .Sometimes in our lives we will get into a abusive relationship because inside our subconscious is the believe we must be punished for some obscure and forgotten reason that is still like a sad tattoo inside our head..We find the perfect man or woman and for a while it seems a match made in Heaven, until the real script develops and the kind woman or man became the punisher and the other one the victim.Emotional abuse is worst in some way than physical one.You can not see the wounds but they are there and last for a life time.What is interesting is that if that relationship ends the abused partner will look for another one who will became the manifestation of their needs to be punished.They will always complain that they are so unlucky and the never find a good relationship but they do not understand they need this toxic co dependency in a sick relationship when they have the choice to move out.They stay in the most part of the cases because their low esteem needs to be even lower and the only way is to find someone who play the much needed role of punisher.
    I do not agree with cruelty in a any form and it is amazing how our lives are full of examples of people we know who are in toxic relationship.Like the poor bird in of the pictures of my story,some people build invisible cages of their own making and become like that bird trapped for life until one day they wake up and understand that past is the past and we can not carry the ghost of childhood into the present or we will have disaster.We need to understand but more that anything we need to heal.Half of the world is trying to heal the child within.I believe we need more to heal the grown up and leave the child resting in the past.
    I guess that my love for animals comes from the fact that they do not have the capacity like for cruelty.They kill for survival. Men kill for sport and pleasure. Animals do not play games with each other ,they are like they are.Men comes in so many beautiful disguises but inside is a different reality.Sometimes a very scary reality because it has the power of destruction.
