“Inevitably, when I share with an acquaintance that I work to end domestic violence, I am met with the response, “Well, why doesn’t she just leave?”
In my experience, the answer to this question is: “Because she can’t afford to.”
Survivors I have spoken with often share common stories about how their partner caused them to lose a job, sell their possessions, or caused them to generate thousands of dollars in credit card charges in their name – leaving them with limited job prospects, no resources, and crushing debt. Domestic violence is about power and control. And often there is no better way to exercise power and control over another person than by sabotaging their economic well-being. The impacts of economic abuse are devastating to both the immediate and future welfare of survivors and their children.” Sarah Gonzalez Bocinski, Program Manager, Economic Justice and Workforce Initiatives https://www.futureswithoutviolence.org/unable-leave-economic-sabotage-exploitation-abusive-relationships/

HOW VULNERABILITY HAS HELPED ME CONNECT WITH OTHERS
In my book, The PREAH Secrets, it takes you on an inspirational journey of how Madison’s vulnerability almost cost her life and her life’s work. Instead of being ashamed about how vulnerable she was, she used it to her advantage. I’ve connected with so many men and women who have shared their stories with me and friendships have developed. They were ashamed & embarrassed at first but were relieved and felt comfort in knowing so many others have experienced and conquered issues created by vulnerability. They embrace their vulnerabilities. Share your stories with me…. Beaumaaks@Yahoo.com
There is an article out from the blog site Inspirationindulgence.com called HOW VULNERABILITY HAS HELPED ME CONNECT WITH OTHERS – Being vulnerable is not always easy, but I respect when people commit to being real.
“Don’t be afraid to be your most honest, vulnerable, true self. Don’t strive to be perfect, strive to be REAL. People will appreciate you more for it. People connect over sharing.”
“As my girl Brené Brown states, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.”
I am 52 and considered to be of the baby boomer generation. We were raised in a world without the internet, taught to respect our elders and certain professions were considered very trustworthy. Examples are doctors, teachers, police officers etc…. we were raised that these are people we could trust no matter what and for the most part this was absolutely true.
I had not one but two similar situations happen to me and I am an educated professional with an upper level income. My scams occurred not with an outsider but a partner…. first with my ex-husband who is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine then a boyfriend who was a Police Officer. Two professions that were “trustworthy professions” I was blinded by the scammers that they were. My point is to trust your gut no matter who the person is. If it feels wrong…. chances are it is wrong.
If you have been scammed or find yourself questioning your gut, email me at Beaumaaks@yahoo.com I want to hear your story.
Generally, the geriatric or elderly community were the ones that were scammed by door to door salespersons or telephone scammers. Today people believe the less educated, the lower income, elderly community are the ones prone to scammers. This is absolutely not true according to The Better Business Bureau.
People today believe what they read on the internet, they impulse shop, they receive emails and phone calls about tax issues or debt collectors and we fall for it believing oh if its on the internet, it must be true.
I have written a book called The PREAH Secrets and it deals with my veterinary husband and how I discovered his heist and how I followed my gut to eventually discover his intentions of deceit. I prepared and eventually sought justice for myself. I hope the book inspires others to follow their instincts and remember, scams can happen to anyone by anyone.
