About Feyisitan

Hi there, thank you for visiting my blog, I am Fèyísìtàn. I am the founder of The Nurtured Ministries to create awareness of Domestic Violence in African societies. The initiative was initially titled  ''NurturedNotTortured'' was chosen primarily from the reflection of my experience being in a marital narcissistic abusive relationship for a long period of time. While the relationship was extremely toxic, it was stressful, draining and distracting but I was never broken. I was being nurtured by the reality of knowing who I was as an individual, knowing who I am in Christ as a Christian and an understanding of scriptural principles for everyday living.

I believe my experience was for a purpose, for such a time as this. To equip and prepare me for this Ministry to help others who are or may find themselves in abusive or toxic relationships.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 clearly define the foundation of this cause.

 ''3: All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…

Signs of Domestic Abuse

How Do You Know You're In An Abusive Relationship?

Domestic abuse rarely takes the form of a one-off event. It's a repeated pattern of a combination of physical and non-physical negative behaviours.

Non-physical abuse is as hurtful and harmful to your emotional, physical, spiritual and mental well-being as physical and sexual abuse are. Identifying signs of non-physical abuse starts with your feelings. If your gut feelings tell you 'something' is not right about the person you're dating or married to, don't ignore it. Trust your instincts, be observant, know the signs and make informed decisions.

The list below is not exhaustive and in no particular order but will help you as a target of abuse to understand your experience or feelings -

Domestic Abuse doesn't just happen. It is a learned behaviour influenced primarily by upbringing, peer pressure, societal, cultural and personal beliefs.


It is a behavioural problem facilitated by underlying psychological challenges including possible suppressed traumatic experience.

Perpetrators can be helped and their targets of abuse can be helped and saved.

Be Nurtured Not Tortured - Conquering Verbal Abuse

Image
To everyone out there who has been hurt or still hurting from deliberate, negative or derogatory words spoken to them. Hear this...

"The voice of the abuser is not the voice of God"
Embrace God's chosen words for you. You are who God says you are and not someone's else's inability to appreciate your worth.

Let's go...It is written -

YOU are the righteousness of God" - 2 Corinthians 5:21
YOU are more than a conqueror through God who loves you - Romans 8:37
YOU are God's workmanship created for good works - Ephesians 2:10
YOU are of God...Greater is the God who lives in YOU than the enemy in the world - 1 John 4:4
YOU are the temple of the Holy Spirit - 1 Corinthians 6:19.


Embrace the truth from the God who created you and NOT the lies from the mouth of an abuser.
