“Personality provides protection.”
(Shane R. Brown)
Just as the lionesses prey on the perimeter more sickly gazelles, those too slow or young to get away, so too in society, those children who are put in survival mode, and not able to let their inner personalities shine, who by lack of nurturing parents, or having been emotionally, mentally, physically, or sexually abused, are pushed out to the perimeters of society. They are in effect shunned, sickly, and an easy target.
They then are the ones, who without the protection of societal safety, are picked out, off, and abused, by the preditors of these vulnerable children.
If our children are encouraged, treated well, blessed with confidence and acceptance of themselves, they can thus be themselves without fear. We can then see, that their personalities minister to the good of their protection.
