So, setting up a new website, not sure if I should close this free one?
And, I went thru Createspace to to Beautiful Anomaly as a print on demand. Turns out it is so long they said I’d nee to charge 19.99 each and I would get less than 1.00 in profit. So, do I split it into 2 books and charge 10.99/each or maybe skip POD all together.
Do you know someone who is being abused? Be a true friend. Give them all the support they need. Listen. Be there with an open ear, an open door, whatever they need. They may not even realize what they are experiencing is abuse.
Do you know when someone repeatedly calls you names, puts you down, makes you feel like a pile of nothing… THAT is verbal abuse and it hurts, sometimes even more than when you get hit. The damage goes even deeper than a bruise. It breaks your soul.
If a person thinks it is their fault, they may stay. You may think how can they do that? But listen to me, you have to realize, a victim might think they are the problem, not the abuser. If they can only behave or do the right thing, the abuse will stop. Until a victim understands what their experiencing is wrong and not their fault, they may not be able to leave.
The best you can do is give them support of whatever you can. Offer to take them to a shelter. Or simply listen.
Be a true friend.
Someone is ALWAYS watching
At class for confirmation last night, Deacon and the other teacher reminded the kids about social media dangers. Yep, think about getting your first job? Perspective employers will look at your online presence and can determine you are not the right fit. Trying to keep that job? Employers may periodically check what your saying or pics your sharing. Then they make an excuse to fire you!
