Let's Call a Spade a Spade
May 8, 2014
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
Bullying, Betrayal, Manipulative, Controlling, Anger Problem, Walking on Egg Shells. These are safe words we use to make unacceptable behavior appear normal. In fact, they are all ways to hide the truth from ourselves and from society at large. We think that the term abuse is only appropriate when talking about physical abuse, sexual abuse or incest. What is less well known is that all of these words express the experience of emotional or psychological abuse. Since awareness is 99% of change, we must stop hiding the truth from ourselves by using words that normalize abusive behavior. Otherwise we will continue to be abused and wonder why the people who supposedly love us keep hurting us. We all exhibit these traits on occasion, but is it a pattern? Flowers and I'm sorry, mean nothing if the person repeats the abusive behavior. If he or she is sincere, they will show you by acting differently. Join us Thursday for a truth-telling program, Let's Call a Spade a Spade.
Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
