A different view.
by: John G

I am happy you found a way. I published my story on this web site.I grew up in a very abusive family. I was the oldest of 5 boys and my parents treated me differently than my brothers.My father beat me just short of killing me and my mother who was in the next room never acknowledged it ever happened. She never even looked to see if I was still alive and there were times I couldn't even get up off the floor for 20 minutes or so. My mother never ever touched me and my father only touched me when he punched,strapped and kicked me. They never said they liked me forget about loving me. I was made to do all the work that needed to be done while my brothers did none. I was traumatized every day nearly all day living in that family. I hated my parents as much as possible all the time. I never ever had a mother, father son relationship even by accident for one second. After my father died I said good bye to my mother because she was never a mother to or for me in my entire life. I didn't see her for 22 years and never missed her a single bit ever. During the time I was beaten by my father I begged God to help me many times he did nothing for me. My father would go to church and come home and beat me. I promised myself that these two people would never win no matter what. I am 81 years old and have lived with this pain for nearly 75 years now. I don't see my brothers and have not for nearly 65 years now. My wife and children know what family is and we live it every day. The word love is spoken all the time. Its not missing in our family. I have no idea what it feels like to have a loving relationship between my mother/father and myself, but I know what it feels like between my wife, daughter and two sons. For me there is no God and there can never be that was destroyed for me when I was a little child. I begged, pleaded and lived a very traumatic childhood every day all day until I could get out and when I could I did and never went back. I am very happy for you.....................
