Battered Woman: Why Don't They Just Leave?

Violence against women is a problem of international proportions, and nowhere is a woman in greater danger than in her own home. Tragedy of the violence extends beyond the physical and emotional injuries of woman. That with these aspects, children were also affected and also formed and showed some tendency of being battered. That is why children witnessing this situations in their own families has the tendency to be violent and portray what they saw, believing that these are the right things to do. According to some researches, boys who have witnessed their fathers beating their mothers are actually 24 times more likely to commit sexual assault than are boys with non violent fathers and 74% more likely to commit violent crimes in general.

Talking About Self - Esteem

Image
Why do some people have a high self-esteem and others low? Maybe because of a good interaction with other people or the place they lived in and many other circumstances involved. As we discussed about the Self-Esteem Theory in class, it also reflects that having low self-esteem is not just about being shy or discreet but also being insecure and telling false stories about other people, just a sign that they are not capable of accepting their own self, that's why they are making false information just to have something to talk about, maybe they can gain some acceptance from others, turning other people down to attain self-fulfillment.

When I was in high school, I've been bullied by my classmates, specifically one group of girls whom I used to be friends just before hand. They will always tell false stories about me and thinking that I'm a drama queen at class because I've been too quiet for sometime due to family related problems and sometimes I just don't feel lik…

Natural Causes

Image
I finally got a new book to read and explore, this Natural Causes book is all about death, lies and politics in America's Vitamin and Herbal Supplement Industry which I think could also help us, especially now that we, Filipinos are having a great deal to those herbal medicines, which we thought could really help. This book discusses those stories behind different herbal medicines but not really informing or persuading (just what i have reflected) everybody to stop using those, of course, on a majority basis it's advantageous, cheaper and more natural. Well, it's up to us if we will continue having those supplements.

It's really interesting and a wow. And yeah right, nowadays we are so concern about health, that's why most of us are being so conscious about everything, we even patronize ready-to-drink tea instead of drinking softdrinks, herbal powders and medicines, natural way of curing and many other forms. To gain more knowledge and information, this Natural Ca…
