Tatyana:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your mother was a very troubled person. Whatever was going on in her life or from her past, she took out on you. What a blessing that she didn't succeed in smothering you. What a blessing that your father came home that day. And what a blessing that you have your loving father to keep you safe and to help you through this difficult time. Just always remember that what your mother did to you, how she mistreated you has nothing whatsoever to do with you, even though it certainly seemed like it at the time. What your mother did to you has everything to do with her. She was the one who couldn't cope. She was the one who lashed out.

The dreams that continue to haunt you can fade away, as long as you always remember that none of what happened was your fault and that what your mother did is not a reflection on you. It's a reflection of her inability to deal with whatever she was dealing with. You are perfect as you are. Don't ever forget that. I send you love, light and healing energy, Tatyana. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You are Blessed!
by: Linda

When I say you are Blessed, I mean having a wonderful dad who loved you and kept you close to him. I had a mother like you did and in my later years I realized she was the one with the problem. I was just her way to vent. I am so happy you are in a good place now, and don't ever think you deserved the abuse your mother gave you. You were her victim. Maybe your mom will get some help and stop hurting others.
, I hope so.

Such cruelty
by: Anonymous

I'm glad that you dad got custody of you and your brothers because he's such a wonderful man for doing that! I hope that you'll try counseling. Your mother really missed out so much that she never got the chance to enjoy a wonderful relationship that she could've had with such a beautiful, fantastic daughter like you.
