Pushed Beyond Limits by Christy Joy

Pushed Beyond Limits is a personal journey of one woman's survival through domestic violence.

  • "When someone intentionally inflicts emotional pain on you, it is impossible to find terminology to find how your sinking heart feels. Your spirit is crushed by constant put downs by abusers." (Christy Joy, Pushed Beyond Limits © 2011).

  • Being abused, whether mentally, verbally, emotionally, physically, financially, etc., Helping Abused Souls is an inspirational place to come. Through her inspiration and caring soul, Christy Joy, herself a victor and survivor of domestic violence, reaches out to those suffering/or those who have suffered as well as those who are searching or grasping for answers to why they were/are abused. Helping Abused Souls is a voice for the voiceless. Helping Abused Souls is a place for you to come to: find inspirational quotes, send Christy personal messages, book a speaking engagement for individual, small or large groups. No one needs to suffer in silence!!

  • Christy’s goal is to move victims of violence from crisis to confidence.

  • “Never give up. Go over, go around, or go through. But never give up. You are tougher than anything life throws your way. You are not defeated until you quit”.

    “And so I found out the hard way; abusive people do not reciprocate love, kindness or devotion”.

The following are some excerpts from Pushed Beyond Limits:

  • “A breaking heart isn’t always as loud as a bomb exploding. Sometimes it can be as quiet as a feather falling. The most painful thing is no one really hears it except you”.
  • “You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves you too full to embrace the present”.
  • “Use your pain as fuel for your journey”.
  • “Victims of abuse cry because of the disgusting way they are cruelly treated. Crying doesn’t indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive”.
  • “Don’t let someone who put you down define who you are”.
  • “Never give up. Go over, go around, or go through. But never give up. You are tougher than anything life throws your way. You are not defeated until you quit”.
  • “And so I found out the hard way; abusive people do not reciprocate love, kindness or devotion”.
