  • "Antwone Fisher" is a a story that paints the picture about people who are hurting emotionally and who sometimes hurt themselves and others as a result.

    Mr. Fisher is a former foster youth who was abused, treated unfairly and felt abandoned by almost everyone who should have stood by him as a child.

    He hid his intelligence, ambition and talent behind his rage and lashed out at others or withdrew altogether to feel safe.

    Go to the 'demo' tab and watch two clips from the film, "Antwone Fisher".

    Tell us what you thought about the clips when you've finished.
  • Antwone recites his poem:

    "...Who will cry for the little boy?
    A good boy he tried to be.
    Who will cry for the little boy
    who cries inside of me?"

    Write the first word that came to mind when you read Mr. Fisher's poem.
  • Does this relate to your situation in any way?
  • If so, are you ready to heal the child inside?

    If the answer to is 'yes', then we're ready and able to help you.

    Keep going with this subject and trust that step by step and day by day they'll lead you to a good place.
  • Here's the reality: People who feel hurt have a tendency to hurt others. Sometimes they don't even know what they're doing or why. They just know they're hurt or mad or afraid.

    Place yourself in one of two categories as you go through this subject:

    a) Maybe you're the one on the receiving end of the anger. Go through the steps from that perspective to better understand what's happening and gain more control over situations that may be spiraling.

    b) Maybe you're the one who's hurting and lashing out at others even when you don't want to. Go through the steps to better understand what's happening to you and how to deal with it.

    Both perspectives will provide tools to use now to decrease the suffering and lessen the pain. The goal is for the hurtful patterns to change altogether.

    Are you ready to find solutions?
  • Alert: if you're consistently on the receiving end of rage, humiliating words or violent actions, then we urge you to seek help now to get out of a potentially dangerous situation.

    Here's information to access the National Domestic Hotline:

    Does this apply?
  • 'Blind Spots' runs for 21 days without breaks for weekends or holidays.
