Violence helps us to discover the boundaries between you and me. It has the mechanism of isolating, awareness raising and forces us to make choices.
It has the power to wake us up and move us towards awareness.
Violence yes for sure makes victims. It is terrible.
The weak however perpetrate violence.
What emerges out of victimhood is an inner strength that strengthens the victim far and beyond that of the perpetrator. The perpetrator remains weak and the victim strengthens.
Violence defines us. Whether we promote it. Stand up to it. Allow it. Subdue it. Squash it. Value it. Relish in it. Reject it. OR use it for our advantage to grow.
