Many of us may have been subjected to dominance in some form or another
It can be a trying time.
To be in a situation where there is truly no freedom to be.
There are many forms of domination and control. It could occur as there is financial dependence or in case of having health issues that limit mobility.
Most arise from deep insecurities that need constant assurance of power and control over things and people.
Domination happens at the workplace at schools and colleges at gyms at playgrounds and very often in relationships at home.
Often the majority of victims are women and children. Sometimes they are subjected to harassment through both physical and mental torture.
Often in the inability to make room for another in accommodation and in complete lack of tolerance…
Domination doesn’t end with one person sometimes the entire family is dominated by a single vile individual.
It is truly a difficult environment to live in under the threat of constant control.
Often times the dominant partner will manipulate subtly that others will not notice. And gradually take control of everything.
Life doesn’t seem yours at all.
It takes a strong will to break free.
To reclaim your life back again
The lesson to remember…
Never back down!
The assertion for self liberation and freedom is a journey towards resurrection.
