Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Checking out a local community project, with a view to maybe volunteering.

Within walking distance of my home, is a hall that is hired out for martial arts, Zumba etc.

I’ve just noticed it also has a community project providing food for those in need. They have boxes of food and other items, with volunteers all helping to organise, sort and arrange/fill the boxes. I am really thankful to these community projects, as they provide compassion for those in need.

I can see from their photos they are connected to a church and it appears to be Churches of Christ. I have no idea whether they are a decent church denomination and what they stand for, but I am thankful when churches provide community services.

And I noticed from their website, they provide a considerable amount of community initiatives and projects.

Neil Jenman has websites dedicated to this work ……. http://www.jenmanfightsback.com.au/ …… is one of them. And I see him and his wife are committed to this, which is wonderful.

Neil also has enemies – of course – because when people with ethics, have a strong voice within an unethical field, it creates a lot of enemies. But I truly thank people like Neil, who speak anyway.

And to know not only are his ethics in business strong, but he also hates bullying, abuse, domestic violence, is an added level of empathy that I have such gratitude for.

Ethics, empathy, a voice for those abused, charitable heart …….. I am not used to men with these qualities.
