James Fortune Addresses Domestic Abuse, Talk Healing Process!
Reader Gospel recording artist James Fortune took to Periscope in an effort to shed some light on domestic abuse. Here are some excerpt from James Fortune Periscope:
“Domestic Violence is more about power and control, it's not just about physical violence. I struggle with control and that’s what I was dealing with. When you can’t control someone then you feel as though you are losing control. Jesus said be angry but don’t sin. We don’t talk about this in the church.”
As he wrapped up his scope he said, “There are four things we need to initially look at to begin the healing process. You can’t change what you are not willing to confront. So take responsibility for whatever your problem is.” Here are the first four things Fortune said needs to be addressed when you are dealing with anger and domestic abuse.
1) Stop blaming other people. You can’t say, someone did this to me, so I did this to them. You will never get free if you don’t. You are responsible for your thoughts, feelings and actions”What's your thoughts?
2) Stop denying the situation. Denial always involves lying. Admit you have a problem instead of saying you don’t have a problem.
3) Stop minimizing your issues and trying to make it less than what it really is
4) Stop trying to justify your actions when you know you are trying to control someone.
