Clearly, your aunt has serious problems. Abusers always do have problems, problems they take out on their charges, the people they're responsible for. You and your sister were young and vulnerable; your aunt took advantage of that. And she's still stuck in the issues she had when you were young. That's not on you. That's on her. And your uncle. You did nothing wrong. They had all the power and controlled your every move. I too had someone in my family (my mother) apologize to me for what was done...only to learn later that the apology was hollow. Again, that was on HER, not me (or you). I learned that forgiveness had to come from me and FOR me, and that it couldn't be conditional upon the actions of my abusers. When I came to that realization, everything changed. Forgiveness is for YOU. It allows you to escape from the prison of anger and hatred and hostility. It allows you to move forward in your life with happiness and freedom. If you haven't already, please consider some form of counselling or therapy in order to help you deal with the effects of what you endured as a child. You deserve that in your life. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Moving past the pain!
by: Princess Andie TM

Darlene,

Thank-you for commenting on my story. I am feeling better now since the horrible letter. I am a writer & wrote a story about 'KEIKO THE WHALE' to help me say goodbye.

It was just the 1st (2) weeks were hard. Though I regret giving her a 2nd chance, I feel I've learned a good thing. It's like when your internal conflict collides with the external element- which in my case was the letter. So I ordered my file from up North & will write a story about it, but I will call it Fiction, based on truth. The reason I ordered my file is that in her letter she called me a liar & that I lied about the situation.

With each passing day it gets better. If it was so easy for her to abuse children...Than how much easier for her to abuse them as adults.

Thank-you,

Princess Andie TM

Life Without... (for us a childhood)
by: Dave White

Thanks for reading my post as I'm sure you'll thank me for reading yours

The things you talk about at your Aunts I remember all too well so it is easy for me to imagine how much you have held back. Better still is that you did get through it and though your Aunt may not look up to the person you have become you have the power to look down at what she never was.

My own post is only one short day of nearly ten years that I suffered and I have found that even a short part makes people ask "How did you cope?"
The truth is I didn't, it was normal life for me back then. it wasn't until it stopped that I needed to learn how to cope with it. Then the older I got the more of my abusers I could see in myself. I hated myself for a long while as I grew worse but then realized I already knew what I needed to do. Everything that my abusers didn't!
My childhood memories then drove me on and on so one day I could say back to them "I am better than you could ever make me" Then the day I went home and put my Army Uniform so they could take pictures I knew I had won.

Thank you for the chance to read your story and i wish you a long and happy life

Dave
