Alexis:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You are not the lies your father is telling you. You are beautiful, smart and worthy of dignity and respect. You are lovable and worthy of love. It's easy to understand why you would believe all the lies, especially when so much has happened to you. But this isn't about you, Alexis. Your mother left, not because of YOU, but because of HER. Your father abuses you, not because you deserve it or because you are somehow flawed, it's because of HIM. HIS problems are at the root of his abuse over you. As for your little sister, she isn't evil, she's misguided in the true sense of the word. She too is being abused because there are no consequences to her inappropriate behaviour. What's important now is that you get the help you need. Keeping this secret does you no good at all. It will only serve to prolong the abuse. Please consider talking to a trust teacher or a school counsellor. And consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

No matter what you've been told or what you've come to believe, you ARE worthy, Alexis. And I for one am so glad you are here, because I believe that people like you can make such a difference in the world, especially when you're willing to share your story and get help for yourself. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Something's Seriously Wrong With Your Parents
by: Anonymous

Alexis, you dad is wrong. You are not fat; you are not ugly: you are beautiful. You are not stupid; you are smart and articulate. You are not a disgrace; you are an asset. You are not a mistake; you are a miracle. You are not worthless; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect. Something's seriously wrong with your parents because they have serious problems and they (even if your mom is in Italy) need help. Oh, and did I mention that they even abused your sisters by teaching them to be antisocial to you? How dare they! The path that they chose is inexcusable. You are not to blame; they are to blame because abusers choose to abuse. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused that power over you, so the sooner you tell, the better. Please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until hew/she will finally listen to you and help you.
