Taken from Chapter 67
Fragments of childhood and survival.
The psychological abuse I experienced
through my entire childhood damaged me and
made me extremely vulnerable to other forms
of abuse. I grew up feeling unworthy, needy,
stupid, and unattractive, with no self esteem.
Because of my later determination to make
something of myself, my life took me on a very
diverse road. I took great risks in the world of
business. Despite going down this path, deep
down I felt like an imposter – I wasn’t good
enough or clever enough. The most difficult
was attending managerial meetings etc., where
I felt they all knew. I felt it showed in my eyes,
but despite this, I battled on, keeping my head
held high and pushing my insecurities aside.
I married a man I thought I loved and
suffered years of physical and psychological
abuse. After my separation, I had a five year
relationship which exposed me to more
psychological abuse, but didn’t even realise it
was happening. It took an amazing experience
which revealed to me the extent of what was
I had to toughen up, and toughen up I
did. I was now blazing a trail through a male
dominated world, and I learnt to deal with it at
a level I thought I would not have been capable
of. As a result of this giant change of direction,
I went on the adventure of a lifetime and
experienced new boundaries of excitement
and great achievement...
The trouble is that women so badly need love in their lives that they choose to ignore the signs that are telling them that there is a problem with the man they are involved with. If he constantly puts you down, if he is bad tempered, if he is snappy with you and critical if he pushes you or shoves you then take notice. There are always signs but we choose to disregard them and only look at the good points. DO not paper over the cracks, take notice and walk away. Do you really want to end up in an abusive relationship? Do you really want to see the fear in your children's eyes as they witness the abuse? Walk away before it gets that far. http://www.amazon.com/EVA-The-darkness-life-ebook/dp/B008XB0YOA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1372932197&sr=1-1&keywords=EVA+THE+DARKNESS+IN+MY+LIFE
April is child abuse awareness month and if each us can take just a few minutes out of our day to educate ourselves on how to recognize the signs of child abuse we could save the next innocent child from being lost to the abyss of evil. With every passing moment Mika Moulton honors Christopher’s memory with her passion and dedication to protect every child from being a victim.

SANDRA LAWRENCE: Unprecedented Life Journey February 13, 2014
By Johnny McMillion
As an Advocate Against All Forms of Violence,- there is no excuse for Domestic Violence. It is everybody's business. Real-life events, such as Sandra Lawrence's Book "EVA The Darkness In My Life", should be shared to reach all segments of our society, through PSAs, billboards, magazines, print ads and bumper stickers. If there was a rating between 1-10, I would surely rate her Book a "10"!
From conception, to the "Triumphant" conclusion of her Book, my hat's off to Sandra Lawrence for her strength, attention to details, bravery, integrity, combating horrendous obstacles, protection for her children and her determination to share her traumatized experience to the World....IS UNPRECEDENTED!!!
Everyone has a responsibility to help prevent Domestic Violence. Six million women were abused in 2012. One in every six was pregnant. Every nine seconds a woman is battered - and somebody looks the other way. Somebody sees the cuts, breaks and bruises, but doesn't ask how it happened. And often- whether it's through a window or a wall or ceiling - somebody witnesses the assault and doesn't call for help. Whether you are a victim, were a victim, knows someone who was or just want to discover for yourself the impact this life-threaten abuse plays on a woman; especially one with children. THEN YOU MUST READ THE PROVACATIVE, HEARTFELT, INSPIRATIONAL, HEALING AND HERIOC JOURNEY OF SANDRA LAWRENCE.
With all that goes on in our daily lives, we may believe we don't have time to get involved with other people and their issues, yet we must! By shouldering a bit of the responsibility, we can progress faster in eliminating the violence which pledge women and children in our society. We owe it to ourselves and everyone else to see that all people live painless and free. Women are the creative force of the world. Every women of color has a responsibility to all women of color to reveal the violence against her; to heal her wounds and do everything in her power to make sure another woman is healed.
Sandra Lawrence, from her personal real-life experience, made it her duty to share what she has gone through from Domestic Violence, to help other women move beyond some darkness in their life. I tremendously enjoyed reading her compelling story and Highly Recommend her Book to everyone I encounter. She gets 5 Stars +!
