Every woman and girl should see this... Men and boys would benefit from it, too.

To help get a good meme seen is why :)

I lost my best friend from High school to a domestic violence situation. Her live in beat her unconscious in front of her 8 year old son and then threw her body into a sink hole and proceeded to shoot her in the leg blowing her knee cap off. He is serving 25 years but will probably be out in 10 on good behavior. EVERYONE should teach their children that LOVE DOESN'T HURT.

Thank you for sharing, Lynch. Love doesn't hurt, and there many ways to abuse.

You have been through some shit, I respect that.

What about it? It's not the opposite of LOVE.

Lust is the opposite of love..
Lust is self fulfilling, where as love , true love, is caring about someone so much that you want the very best for them...
Optimally, both want the best for each other and are mutually selfless and uplifting each other.
When it becomes one sided, or if it is always one sided... that is unhealthy, and off balance can lead to abuse.
Self esteem also has a lot to do with abuse and with abusers.
Abusers actually have low self esteem and look for those that they feel that they can control and isolate.
This will further lower a victims self esteem and make the. Feel like they nothing... less than nothing and deserve all the abuse they receive.

I disagree. Lust is sexual arousal. What you're saying is tantamount to saying you can't be sexually aroused by someone you love, or even that you don't love the person who causes you sexual arousal.
There are unhealthy forms of lust, but love and lust are not mutually exclusive, and therefore, not opposites.
But it is impossible to feel fear and love at the same time. Those are opposites.
The rest is true, though.

Ok... I see what your trying to say...
But I think that the word lust has different meaning to each of us.
To me, what you are describing, being sexually aroused by the one you are in love with is part of love, and I would call that chemistry.
You can live someone without that chemistry...
But Eros love has that element of chemistry that otherwise would be like kissing your siblings... yuck!
That chemistry with the one you love makes the spark... the passion... the ultimate fulfillment in a relationship. Both are having all their needs, wants and desires met through each other by mutually giving and receiving love on many different levels.
And yes... when one is in fear of ones spouse or sidnifigant other... that is NOT love... not at all.
When one loves, you cherish, protect and uplift the other.
Abusive relationships are the complete opposite of that.
I LOVE that someone posted the Power Wheel.
I endured years of abuse, and it wasn't until I saw the wheel of power that I realized how incredibly abused I was on so many levels.
Love is about uplifting the other, not complete control.... and fear is a HUGE motivator in that abusive control.
It took many years... but I am finally out of his control and no longer fear him.
I used to think how terrifying it would be if one of our kids got married and I had to see him... how would I react, what would I do?
It was paralyzingly to think of... now, I no longer fear that eventual day...
It's about the happy couple and not the abusive a$$ who I gave too much rent free space in my head to, for far too long.
I want to live life to the fullest, and living I. Fear is the opposite of that too...
No longer will I allow fear to dictate and direct my life... and never again shall it.
Life is too precious to waste living in fear...
I'd rather live in a state of love and complete happiness :-)

If that cup of coffee was me...
it would be mostly milk with a bit of coffee.. cause I'm a blondie
I am a LOT more assertive and don't put up with crap anymore, in the slightest degree.
I call it the way I see it, yet I have still retained my sweet personality and bubbly outlook...
My greatest defense and the thing that is best payback to my ex is to live life to the fullest :-)

It refers more to a woman's spirit. I dare say, I believe it to be quite an accurate description of yours.
I made that before I found Imgflip.
And you didn't mention which school you were using to learn English Braille. I meant to tell you that the Hadley School for the Blind (http://www.hadley.edu) supplied the free Braille correspondence course that taught the guy I told you about. I found it to be well-organized. Thought you might like to know.

I learned braille through Voc rehab.
I actually am still learning braille... contractions....
Yes, the Hadley School is world renowned for their classes for the blind.
Just as the Louisiana school for the blind in Ruston, LA
I am certainly an independent woman who won't let a pesky thing like lack of sight destroy my vision of life... and living life to the fullest.
I look forward to getting a self driving car and gaining my independence back.
I have BIG plans for the future!
I am going to get one of those cars and I am going to drive cross country and see the world... I am going to have a channel on YouTube that will chronically my adventures in blindness as I explore the world... and show the world that I can conquer all obstacles.
