There are many 'emotions' within us regarding domestic
violence that need to be expressed for true healing to begin. The
partial sentences within this journal are to help you to unlock the door
within self, that has behind it all the pain of guilt, shame, fear,
anger, anxiety, and other feelings you've been afraid to confront.
the former wife of John Allen Muhammad, the convicted DC Sniper, I've
felt no one could handle my 'emotions'. I knew I had to get them outside
of myself to heal. I began journaling and found more emotions I didn't
realize existed. I couldn't tell anyone because I felt ashamed, guilty,
and thought no one would believe me anyway. But...writing them down gave
me the opportunity to truly focus on my pain and how these emotions were
affecting my everyday living.
I'm so thankful to God for giving me the
inspiration and guidance to share this journaling process with you. It
is a long journey, however, it is worth the trip.
Included in the journal: a comprehensive safety plan, 50 State
Coalition listing, VINE information, websites for men, and victim/survivor
assistance resource information.
Proceeds from the journal will help to continue the work in assisting
survivors of domestic violence.
