When a tag (can) give courage?
Today, actress Melissa Benoist revealed that she had been the victim of domestic violence. Let’s think about it for a moment. Violence is a part of our DNA. We may be disgusted, horrified, or even alarmed, but we can never make it go away. Hollywood productions charm us into thinking violence is attractive when the good guys beat up the bad guys. On the other hand, when the villains attack the good guys, we hope for revenge with all our heart.
I mentioned domestic violence in Monday’s post. https://coachdanny.ca/2019/11/25/diacontralaviolenciadegenero-internationaldayfortheeliminationofviolenceagainstwomen-solomotivation-mondaymotivation-mondaymorning-2/ Everything leads me to believe that it is possible that promoting this day makes acts of violence emerge from the shadows. However, it takes much more than just a tag that creates a bit of a buzz on Twitter. Often, people are informed of the situation and they remain silent. This short post isn’t really enough to elaborate on the subject, but offering support to a person who is or has been a victim of domestic violence is something that may allow them to take the first step towards freedom.
If you find yourself in this situation, offer or seek the necessary help that will give you the necessary support to put things back in order. Violence will always be there, but that doesn’t mean we have to allow it to be manifested in any way. Intolerance to violence is the key to our growth.
