Abuse in Yoga
When we allow ourselves to experience misogyny and abuse, whether firsthand or through others, we are admitting to the universe that we believe certain people are more powerful than we are. We allow ourselves to exist in a world where we are less than. This mentality sabotages our self-esteem. Continuing to victimize ourselves leads us to perpetuate our ingrained feelings of not being good enough. Ultimately, if we continue to have relationships with the abusers, we will repeatedly internalize the idea that we are not love-able.
