What is really happening?
A few days ago I've joined the Facebook Group #MeToo (official).
First I posted a video in which I share my #MeToo story, how it impacted my life without knowing it (until 2012) and how since 2013-2014 my life has started to turn around while utilizing my experiences to grow stronger and started helping others.
After that I started reading stories - from women and from men - and than it hit me and I wrote the following:
Society is not man friendly when it comes to this subject in general and men coming out about them being abused in specific.
Society has labeled men as being strong and women less strong, for centuries. It's a total misconception in my experience and personal opinion. Strength is relative and in different fields. Even physical strength, as most simple minds focus mainly on 3D is often not as they believe.
There is much more to a person than his or her physical strength and intelligence. Humans have so many qualities that have been are crucial for its survival. And all those qualities make us unique and very beautiful beings, all of us without exception.
It is when people get hurt in a way or another that unbalance triggers certain of our qualities to shift to their shadows and that's when we start to be perceived as unpleasant and judged. Often harshly judged, condemned even and excluded. Yet we all have our shadows and we all have some that rise and no one is perfect from that perspective. But we all are who we are with our qualities and life experiences.
Should someone who got badly hurt be condemned for acting strangely out of pain and desperation? Would you condemn a poor and starving man for stealing a bred?
I know for a fact that all of us in this group, and in any other group with a similar subject, have had our dark sides surfacing in one way or another: any kind of compulsive behavior, excessive behavior, rejecting situations or people just because they remind us of what happened (often an unjust rejection for the others) , addition(s),... Should we then all eb punished for this? or blame the one who did hurt us for all of it?
I believe not. Why? All human get hurt badly at some point in life, either by some one personally, by an organisation, by society, or by an event like a loss or a disaster.
We are living life to learn in many different ways. and the end goal is to learn to value every experience and to grow stronger from it from a place of love, inner love at first and then to spread it to the outside world.
This is what I have come to believe in throughout the years and with the help of some beautiful souls.
Please be gentle to yourself and the world around you and ask for help when you feel you need it. leave your Ego out of it when it comes to asking for help.
