Grooming and Conditioning... (Connie J...)
Have you ever thought about these two words; and if they pertain to your life?
Grooming, or conditioning is when a perpetrator of some type of abuse works to drop your defenses and make you comfortable, earning your trust, if you will.
After this is complete, you are usually compliant, until you know better - either by someone outside of the cycle of abuse; or you happen to read something somewhere, and it catches your attention and makes you start asking questions.
As I have mentioned, before, I was raised in a Domestic Violence situation - but didn't realize it, until I was in my 40s.
Does any of this sound familiar in YOUR life? Is it time to #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE? Does this sound like it is happening in any relationships of your friends?
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
