Ever had a friend who constantly dated the wrong men? Ever wondered what caused her to end up with so many jerks? Women across the world have either been in a bad relationship or know someone who has. But the question that really baffles many is how can I avoid wasting my time with the wrong man? All of your answers can be found in my new empowering book, Not Another Victim.
Not Another Victim is a non-fiction book that draws a clear picture of what it takes to avoid a bad relationship. With a non-judgmental tone, Blackwell provides action steps that all women should take in order to help them avoid becoming involved with the wrong man. Any woman who has ever dated the wrong man or simply wants to take precautionary steps will be empowered by the various topics within this book.
Blackwell provides five essential steps that will help many women.
Step One focuses on ways to deal with all unfinished issues within the heart. When our heart is filled with unfinished issues it hinders us from being able to recognize and receive a good relationship.
Step Two encourages self-sufficiency. Without our own individual goals and visions we become dependent on others to secure our future…this should not be. If you want a secure future it is your job to take action steps to make those goals happen and not depend solely on your boyfriend or husband to fulfill those needs.
Step Three challenges the reader to develop clear boundaries in all relationships. Boundaries encourage us to limit what people say and do to us. Without communicating our boundaries, loved ones can and will walk all over us. For example, if you never tell your boyfriend that you do not like it when he yells during an argument he will continue to do so. It is your job to communicate your likes and dislikes and expect people to respect those boundaries.
Step Four describes the various forms of abuse as well as the characteristics of an abuser.
Step Five provides directions for women who are currently in an abusive relationship and want to get out.
At the end of each chapter, there are action steps, words of faith and biblical scripture references.
Not Another Victim encourages, inspires and empowers women to take charge of every relationship and not become another victim.
