We can turn off online abuse and intimidation but when it transpires into our personal space at home and/or at work this becomes an extreme form of unnecessary hardship based upon the obsession and control of evil acts. All I can say to those who feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated at the will of another. Things will get better because there is a much bigger platform than the ones we can see around us. help is available. talk to people.
I had an amazing experience yesterday. I went for my walk and talk with strangers. No matter what the weather I put myself into life, even for just a few moments. I saw these flowers on the counter in a black bucket in Tesco Express on Clifton Street in Lytham. That’s where I normally walk at night. I said to the lady on the till (who had such a warm persona), ‘these flowers need some TLC’.
There were two bunches of lilies with cabbage plants and a bunch of carnations. She said I could take them all, as they were out of date and nobody had bought them. I told her I would just take one bunch but she was most adamant I had the lot. So I picked up the lilies then told the younger girl behind me to have the last bunch of carnations. The girl went on to explain they were her favourite flowers and that day her boyfriend had finished with her. That she was struggling. She had tears. I got home and felt a sense of comfort, putting life back into perspective.
We had come to Lytham for privacy which is now impossible due to events from last week involving tech equipment around a private family home and the local vicinity. It is in hand, they have traced the signal to the origin, but the shock of experiencing this is hard to digest at this time. Criminal phycology experts are essential. But it also fuels the fire of the mentally unstable who regard this acceptable. Though fortunately, I am trained in such matters with my volunteer work.
That said, last Saturday I had another amazing experience in the charity shops. I found faith and kindness. One counteracts the other but the frustration of ongoing attention from a very evil entity that spreads fear and hate is ongoing. Modern day Comedy is necessary but unfortunately stolen when it is used to send threats and conflict to the vulnerable as though stuck somewhere in the 1970’s. And with any perpetrator they need validation even if it is not positive. They thrive on attention and phycological warfare. Women, don’t feed the dark but never be silenced. There’s more good out there than bad. I am excited to nurse these flowers to some kind of salvation. Poor things.
Mom’s garden is under way. Despite the weather. We are happy. One day at a time. Deflect the darkness. It’s yuletide. Privelidge is not only monetary. It’s respect, values and conscience on a widespread level. I am a strong person. A daughter to be proud of and a mum of steel. I am a partner of trust and we walk free together. It’s my circle. Never broken. Get on with your lives because air is sweet and snow is pure.
I need to show you the buffalo and sheep foot stools I found soon. Charity is on all our doorsteps. I have the dentist this morning. His name is Sanjiv. He is such a lovely man. I am looking forward to a root filling … (crazy.) But the better news is I get my nails done tomorrow and my tootsies. I may get disheveled but I always look after my nails. It’s the cat or the rat in me.
