Awaken! Stop Normalizing Abuse! Heal yourself! Help Heal the world!
By Janus Blume
If you’re on a path of healing, especially if you’re called to help others, you need Normalizing Abuse: A Commentary on the Culture of Pervasive Abuse by Karen Tate, who says,
“We are all part of a traumatized society, enduring abuse. It affects the decisions we make, how we see ourselves and treat others and our vision for the future,”
Ms. Tate asserts there is so much toxic abuse coming at us every day that we no longer recognize it. Nearly everyone I’ve met has certainly experienced it,
Normalizing Abuse…is no anthem to victimhood. The author calls if forth by name so we can heal from it—as individuals and as a collective.
As Karen and I got acquainted, we learned that her mentor is someone whose ideas changed the direction of my life in the early 1990s. It’s no surprise that her book dovetails precisely with the quest to liberate us from the tyranny of toxic guilt, shame, and blame.
We can rewrite our social agreements so that we honor and nurture each other, while still holding ourselves and each other accountable.
There’s more information available on the sites where her book is offered. Please join me in a show of full support for this sister and her commitment to a world where it’s safer to be you.

“Today we are being called to awaken, stand up and speak truth to those wielding toxic power over us, not just for ourselves but for the future.”—Karen Tate
