You are stronger than you realize...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I don't know about sad, Alyn, but I do know that as a survivor of horrible child abuse, you have an inner strength that you can draw upon. After all, you DID survive terrible abuse, over and over and over again. Whatever it is you've done, whatever crime the prosecution believes you have committed, if you committed it then you must pay the societal price. And if that IS the case, then use the time to connect with Who You Really Are. Use the time to reconnect with the spirit that is still there for you. The spirit that you believe is broken, but can never be truly broken. You have only to go inside yourself to make that reconnection. You are much stronger than you realize. Keep telling yourself that, Alyn, until you believe it yourself. Ask not "why me", but rather, ask "what can I do to turn this pain into power?" THAT would bring purpose to your life, Alyn.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I wish you all the best.

Hi be fair to yourself, begin seeing yourself differently
by: maurice

Hi Alyn, great you sat down and related your feelings after abuse to Darlene and her visitors all of whom have journeyed through abuse and out of it to all levels of degrees of healing from it. Alyn abusing the body is one thing but abusing one's spirit and in your case almost killing your spirit to believe in yourself. NOTICE I said almost, They have not killed it completely, Alyn it will be of slow growth but you must begin today telling yourself I am me in my own right NOW at 49 years. For years I have let their opinion of me rule my thinking and being. I was not able to think for myself because of the abuse they meted out on me physically, mentally and emotionally, they ruined me. and my spirit, Great you have arrived at Darlene's site Alyn you are now among friends who really care and love you for who you are in the telling. Darlene's loving words and advice to you is where you must begin Today. You will find it hard but I know, Darlene knows, all her visitors know that only you can change. I'm Special, I'm Beautiful, I'm 49 years of age I am my own person, I'm strong and brave to do what is best for me, all I need do is think positive things about myself, act in a positive way and make these things work for me making me feel good inside and out about myself, be positive, make these things happen because you are the one that will benefit from the doing of them. Okay, you're 49 years, most of those years were sort of miserable ones for you Alyn. You must let go of those awful painful agonising years when you were put down, made to feel like a piece of S. scarred all over. HI ALYN it won't be easy but coming onto Darlene's Site will give you the courage and the hope that I can do it, I will do it, I must do it NOW just for me. Now begin to see that wonderful beautiful you in the mirror and say loving caring thoughtful nice things about your beautifulness. From day one you were beautiful in your nakedness, sadly parts of that beautifulness were scarred by cruel and vicious human beings called parents.
