Survivors are you ready for a fabulous discussion tonight on our broadcast of Survivors World???
Tonight a special discussion with co-host & guest Faith McDaniel as we look into the insane world of living with a Narcissist. You love them but they do not even acknowledge you have feeling or care about your suffering. You love them but they do not see what emotional pain they cause when their focus is the ‘ALL ABOUT ME’ attitude. How does this effect the children in the home? How does it impact your relationship with them? What sacrifices do you make to live in a marriage or relationship with ‘The Narcissist You Love’?
Tonight’s show, beginning at 9pm eastern time – welcome Award Winning Children’s Author, Author Julie Federico!!! This is a show for all ages & we encourage parents & educators to listen in as we share Julie’s latest works. Its never too early to begin reading to your children and with these vibrantly illustrated and empowering stories, you or your school, will connect with the children and provide them with courage to speak up. Remember a child reporting a violent or abusive crime, either in their home, their school, or in their neighborhoods, carries a lot of power and demands prompt attention. Join us and help teach our children to believe in their own true power. Butterfly Dreams; connecting hearts & holding hands of help around the world. Together we are providing the next generation with a path to secure their happy childhood!! Pass it on and invite friends from your circles. Remember our amazing Butterfly Volunteers & Helpers are always in our chatroom for your commentary or to provide support. Thank you!!!
My dearest friends, as I have shared with you many times before, there is just no way I can explain how my life has turned around. Just the people I am honored to call dear friends, the survivors & families who have touched my heart with words of support, and the many unexpected voices of those in film documentary, P.R. profession, education & therapy; advocates, organization leaders; all giving ‘My Justice’ outstanding reviews and support.
Here I would like to share the latest from one of these angels who I am honored to call a Warrior Sister & Friend
My dear friends,
please say a prayer, send a note of encouragement, or whatever you have in you, to my dear friend Patricia A. Mcknight. If you have not heard/read her true story of struggling with being in a very, very bad situation, please do so. My Justice is a hard story to read, but it’s non-fiction and shows the strength and courage Patricia has to share her story in order to help others. Unfortunately, Patricia’s story is not the only one, she’s just the one I know who has come forward, not an easy thing to do at all.
The book, Soul Parole: Making Peace with My Mind, God and Myself, by
Tommy Connolly is a very good example of what true courage is about. If you read that story about drugs, addiction and beating the odds, you will feel the connection to My Justice by Patricia as well.
Patricia, like many of us, goes through struggles. The physical scares of her abuse are still showing, and she is trying to repair them, however it is the inner scares which are hardest to repair.
Again, please show your kindness and love to her. She’s an amazing woman.
Thank you, sincerely.
A personal message: I have read your book/story, from cover to cover and I must say, honestly, you are the bravest person I have ever known. It’s one thing to be brave on the streets as an officer, it’s quite another to be brave sharing the deepest parts of our soul and the feelings that come with being abused.
Today as many know I am Owner/CEO of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery & Talk Radio Programming
If you or someone you know is having difficulty or is suffering in the destruction of these types of family violences & abuses, please visit http://www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com or listen to our shows at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflydreamstalkradio
Hopefully you woke with a spark in your spirit that something you are focused on will indeed come through. We all need something to keep us going and inspire the drive to create something better for ourselves. What if we carried just a small consideration of that same drive to keep those around us safe from harm, all forms of harm. Not to shelter them from knowing the REAL world and pitfalls that trap us, but to keep them personally safe. It is one thing to experience a life skill, but being beaten or controlled, trapped & used as an object – this is not a harm which any living being should have to endure. We don’t allow it for our pets, our farm animals, so why in the world do we turn away when it is a child in our family circle? No more friends. You can choose to be a Family Defender, allow that bright new spark to guide you through. May you always know happiness everyday ❤
Help is always there!! If you have been harmed sexually or physically, please reach out and give yourself a chance to LIVE SAFE.
You are not trapped, there are resources to help you rebuild, recover, develop the skills you need to truly survive. Give those who need us a hand to help them through. Thank you ~~ Always believe anything is possible with you in the active equation ~~ trish
Tonight Survivors World is calling out to ALL VICTIMS of ALL TYPES OF CRIME!! When you have been robbed, suffered through Identity Theft or some other form of personally violating or threatening crime you and your family are still effected by the fear & trauma you are trying to cope through. It’s a huge pleasure to welcome a personal friend & a strong advocate resource helping reduce all forms of Human Trafficking and build awareness through their recent grant award for the National Crime Victims Week 2014. Butterfly Dreams is hoping to encourage others to be aware of how ALL types of crime leave an ongoing ripple effect until the trauma is healed. Let’s hear your story and how a crime has changed your life.
Kristen Eng of Rescue & Restore of Southwestern Illinois is joining me here tonight to share about the upcoming event to honor all victims. Restoring the Balance of Justice Glow-Run 5K, Vigil & Resources Fair. I love bringing local resources of support and help to share here in my area. Also, I will be speaking to help kick off the event on April 11th, so come on out if you can.
Get ready for a terrific broadcast and we hope you pass this on to your circles. I believe next month is a time to rise everyone. We are the generation with a grand opportunity to truly make a difference with all the courage we have built in our mission thus far. We are the Generation No More and this is a broadcast outreach program of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery & Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio. Thank you.
My only perceived value was in my sexuality as an object, not as a person. Needless to say, seeing my value only through my being wanted by a man flowed into my adult relationships and my example as a mother. The broken spirit of ugliness, overweight teen with scarred disfigured skin from not bathing; black broken fangs for teeth from never given the human kindness and decency for proper hygiene; the teen I was with all my distorted perceptions felt grateful for any man wanting to be with me or choosing me as their wife.
“I was well trained to be submissive; accepting their degradation, control, beatings and almost murderous actions because I was nothing without them.”
It is our Survivors World night and we are talking about the bruises you can’t see, the control strings our parents & partners use to keep us in ‘line’. You are not a puppet on strings. You have value & You are capable of living without them. Call in at 347-215-7754 or connect in our chatroom with our volunteers. Show starts at 9pm eastern/ 8pm central/ 7pm mountain/ 6m pacific time. We welcome men, women & most certainly teens. Emotional abuse is a vile destruction of the person you were intended to be, but you do not have to give them this power!!
On this show we are looking at the studies on this type of harm, but more importantly we want to hear about your experiences. Did your parents commonly use the word ‘Stupid’ to describe you as a person? Did/does your patner or spouse have you believing that you have absolutely no identity without them, that you are completely incapable of achieving/completing the slighest small task? Are you constantly struggling to see yourself in a mirror, some reflection of a person who does exist? You are invited to come share this with us as we open up our phones to hear your voice!!
She was a young developing child, abandoned by all those who had the power to change her life. She rotted away and was shunned by those around her. Her life was terror and it played out for twelve consecutive years. Today I’m trying to remind everyone that it doesn’t have to be this way. We can teach our children how wrong these actions are. Teach them about community involvement, teach them they can do something to help a friend or a senior in need. Teach your children the Positive Beauty of Life!! Please come visit the website, get your copy of ‘My Justice’, see where it all began for me and why it is so important still to this day.Changing the world just a little bit ❤ trish

Tonight my friends we welcome two special guests on ‘Its a Family Affair’ on Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio. You and your family are invited to join in our conversation as we discuss Secondary Wounding of Family Violence and the ‘Prisoner of War’ focus on the victims who endures in silence without a weapon everyday, especially our children who don’t even have the right to say ‘No’.
Conversation starts at 9pm eastern time, let’s get our thoughts and conversation points going on this link, or set your REMINDER here and join in with us live tonight. Call in at 347-215-7754 or connect with our awesome Butterfly Helpers in the chatroom. There is a change in the views of these actions and it is all of those who have survived to tell their story who are the greatest teachers we will ever have. Believe in the studies and the truth of how these types of tolerated acts have been endured with enforced silence, but today you are the key to that change. We can empower as we teach our children a better way, no longer do we have to suffer in silence or endure the pain day after day. There is hope & help!! Chat with everyone later. How has violence impacted your life or your children’s perception of safe behaviors today?
