October is Domestic Abuse Prevention Month, so I am going to post several articles about that topic, this month

Not all psychopaths are violent--in fact, most of them aren't. One of the most frightening and chilling things about a psychopath is their ability to blend in with society, and seem just like everyone else.

They don't feel emotions, with the exceptions of anger and jealousy. They are excellent mimics-imitating emotional responses they don't really feel, but because it is an act, people in their lives may get the sense that something is a little off, the charade is imperfect, but it is difficult to pinpoint what is off about the psychopath. They are narcissistic, and often driven to succeed. They often tell stories about the great things they have accomplished. They have to be the center of attention, all the time. Does any of this sound like someone you know?

Every woman is beautiful but we all have features that we hate about our looks and hopefully features that we love. My favorite beauty feature are my cheekbones. I'm grateful for my Indian ancestry and for my high cheekbones.

Guys, which do YOU prefer in a partner when considering a "long-term" relationship? There are so many people looking for the perfect match and it feels so good when you are with the person who is perfect for you. It's one thing to be attracted to someone but what do you look for in a partner?

I have been thinking about the prayers that the Lord has already answered in my life, and I am so thankful for all His many blessings. I wanted to share some of them with you, dear readers.

  1. Getting me out of an abusive marriage. I wrote a bit about this in an earlier post, I will share the link to it below.
  2. When I was concerned about possibly losing my job because of performance issues, not only did I keep my job, they provided additional training, and then created a new position for me where I could use my strengths. This resulted in increased revenue for the company. God turned it around, and everyone benefitted.
  3. My wonderful fiancé, who is an answer to all I have prayed for in a mate.

I believe it is so important to recall, daily the Lord's blessings, especially in the midst of trial, so that our focus is on all the good things that the Lord has done for us, and to remind us that He has been faithful in the past, will continue to be faithful, forever and always. He changes not.


How has God answered your prayers recently?

The most brilliant man of our time, notably must be Elon Musk! Today he publicly explained his endeavors to colonize Mars. He is simply the most phenomenal mind of our time. I don't think it is that he is the most creative but because he is the most daring with his creativity and billions of dollars. He did some pretty amazing things at the Space X address this week!

My heart is heavy as I type this. I saw in the news tonight that another young black man had been shot by police. The expected words from those on both sides of the incident--Twitter blowing up--the Twitterverse seems to always know about the news even before the news channels do--LOL.

Tonight I have tried to put myself in the shoes of those in the black community. I grew up, for the first eleven years of my life, in a predominately black neighborhood, I went to a school where white kids were the minority. I have seen for myself, in many places, that racism is alive and well. From Rochester, NY, where I was born, and lived until I was eleven, I moved to a small farming community in NY, with my grandmother, father, and my older sister April. April was Mulatto. I saw a lot of what she experienced, she had friends, but she never seemed to truly be accepted by either group.

So I have seen the racism from both sides, from black people, and from white people.
