Before Voting Tomorrow Pro-Lifers, Please Read and Consider the Following

Tomorrow American people who say they are pro-lifers are going to vote for a president that devalues, disrespects, degrades, dismisses, and bullies women … unless he is using them for his advantage … and I cannot stand by in silence knowing he has swayed pro-lifers just to get votes, when in reality it is men who act like him towards women that encourages men to do the same to women … and worse.

Even though there are the “Lowest numbers since 1973 … across all of the US … fewer women are becoming pregnant because of the increased contraception accessibility that is part of the Affordable Care Act. Read the linked article for details https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/number-abortions-u-s-drops-lowest-they-became-legal-nationwide-n1055726

However, we must also look beyond the decrease and the why to the other significant contributors to the problem …

Statistics: Every 73 seconds an American is sexually assaulted.

Estimated cost of rape is $122,461 per victim for medical costs, lost productivity, criminal justice activities, and other, such as counselling.

3 out of 4 sexual assaults go unreported to police.

Statistics from the Joyful Heart Foundation founded by Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order Special Victims Unit fame.

So, choosing pro-life now means not just opposing abortion, but about combining our efforts to change the mindset men have that they get to do what they want when they want with women regardless of the impact and consequences their choices manifest.

Plus, we must be compassionate for those who become pregnant due to rape or incest … would you want to carry and bear that child?

And because we all know that evil thrives when good people do nothing.

On behalf of those who can’t thank you, thank you for your concern, care, and compassion.

Looking Behind the Narcissist’s Curtain

Much like the OZ wizard character in “The Wizard of Oz” movie, narcissists may appear more confident, capable, and powerful than what they really are.

“Overview. Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.Nov 18, 2017”

Authority Abusers

Just because someone has authority over someone or a group of people does not mean they have good character … what sometimes happens is people with a low “Respect Level” for his or her self needs to feel empowered by controlling and manipulating others with the, conscious or unconscious, intent to inflict pain that mirrors or is worse than their own. Such a person a group also seeks to elevate themselves above others … which is yet another way prejudice takes hold, grows, and manifests indifference, apathy, hatred, violence, and war.

My Personal Experience with Perfectionism

Because of my unusual personality type, I did not “fit in” unless I was doing everything “perfect” or above average, but the cost was high, especially in the long run. When I finally raised my “Respect Level” high enough, valuing myself equally to others, I quit obsessing with perfect and started focusing on discovering who I was under the perfect image that was killing me with its unreasonable, unrealistic, and painful consequences.

Though my physical and mental health has since improved, a cost was also paid for with the loss of many relationships, but then again, the relationships I had were more based on my meeting other people’s needs and wants, so it really is no surprise that many relationships ended. Now, starting over at the bottom of the life and success scale, with hardly any material possessions or worldly success, the relationships I now develop are based on who I am as a person, rather than what I have accomplished or how perfectly I perform or meet someone’s wants and needs, because I have witnessed first hand what relationships based on performance result in … emptiness, sadness, and an unhealthy striving to be something that I am not … perfect.

Freed from the need to be perfect, I can now just be a unique human … me … exploring my and our world, changing my mind, trying new things, and encouraging myself when I make a mistake or fail ,so I don’t give up on what’s important to me because I don’t get it right the first, second, or twentieth time. It’s a welcome, long-awaited state of being I highly recommend for the bliss imperfection provides.
