Something to Think About wtss1-009

Commentary by Demian Yumei on letting another decide whether or not a relationship continues in a covert abusive context. Written and narrated by Demian Yumei of

There are many ways to give away your power. One of them is letting another person determine whether you stay in a relationship or not, or perhaps more to the point, whether you move on or not. In this commentary, I encourage you to take the initiative to be the one to decide. There’s no need to wait for a sign or for someone’s permission. As I say in this episode:

“Don’t stop living your life while they live theirs. They don’t get to have a guarantee that you’ll be there for them while they’re giving themselves every opportunity to attend some people buffet.”

In other words, the only permission you need is your own.

~ Keeping the Dream


Opening and closing song is an original piece by, myself, Demian and my friend and music partner, Stacey Young, the title song of our first CD together, “DreamSinger – For the Sake of Love”

About the Author

About the Author: Greetings, fellow dreamer, and welcome! I’m Demian Yumei, author, singer/songwriter and artist activist. Some of my creative projects are a CD of healing music, “For the Sake of Love” and a children’s book on the interconnectedness of life, “Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes” published by Illumination Arts. Currently, I’m in the process of creating podcasts for my book series on covert abuse. My commitment is to the creative process especially as it relates to the healing journey. Whether I’m singing at a vigil for asylum seekers, memorial for political activists or sitting around a table sharing tea and conversation with friends who just want to talk heart to heart, I am always deeply moved by the human spirit to love and live with authentic beauty. Thank you for being here, for reading my posts and/or listening to my podcast. There’s much to share, much to create and the journey has just begun! Meet you on the path. .
