Child Abuse - Never Give Up On Yourself

by Joel
(California, USA)

The people that mattered in your life gave up on you, gave up on themselves, if not, they would not have abused you. Many others attempt to abuse you, but when you are a child, you have not acquired the skills needed to withstand or fight off the attacks. Extremely violent child abuse, with vindictive neglectful parents culminates into severe problems manifesting later in life, and is sure to take its physical and emotional toll on the abused well after the violence has ended.


But there is one thing we all share inside that cannot be underestimated nor destroyed by the past, and that is "A Sense Of Justice". This spirit lives in us all and will overcome all obstacles, suffer all things, to finally be heard.

Do not give up on yourself. Know hidden deep inside you is that which is greater than God.
