Statistics Be Darned! Campaign Is Taking It To The Streets
The newly-married Mrs. Vearnon is taking this message to the streets!
Kicking off her Statistics Be Darned initiative is a "Meet and Greet" on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 1:00pm at 5th Avenue Coffee Cafe in Garner North Carolina. There, she and women desirous of healthy, satisfying relationships with men will gather for two hours of empowerment and support.
Says this woman who spent every weekend in the self help section of the library for many years, "Before I wrote the first book or even knew about coaching, there was a need to figure this relationship stuff out."
The road to figuring it out has not been easy for this student turned teacher. Vearnon herself the Adult Child of An Alcoholic, while writing her book, The Sound of My Soul, pieced together having been molested as a young child. "Mistrust, abandonment issues, anxiety, poor self esteem and distorted beliefs are all part and parcel," she explains. "Add to that a healthy dose of fire and brimstone religion and it's a crazed existence."
Says Vearnon, "All I knew was I wanted a Handsome Prince to come and rescue me from it all. I didn't have a clue about how to recognize him though." For many years, Vearnon blamed herself for her confusion and even took a handful of pain relievers to escape her emotional pain. "It wasn't until I read Love Is A Choice that I learned that love isn't suppose to hurt."
On December 27, 2014, her loneliness came to an end. This 55 year old twice-divorced woman beat the odds and married the love of her life. It was a pivotal day in her life. Not only was it her biological birthday; it was the birthday of a higher calling. "I got recruited!,"
Now clear, Vearnon stopped tolerating nonsense. "What we women don't understand is Friends With Benefits, Revolving Door Exes, and Mr. Right Now's tie up our time and drain our energy. We think there's no harm done--after all, ain't nobody else vying for our attention, right? But it is very harmful," she explains. "In our preoccupation, we ourselves become unavailable."
This is one of many insights Vearnon can't wait to share. "We don't have to change who we are. We just have to change how we experience men." Hence, Vearnon's campaign rages on.
