I hope you're still in therapy to help you deal with what happened to you. You most definitely did NOT deserve to be mistreated. You deserved to be treated with dignity and respect. As for ending up in jail, that does NOT have to be your legacy. The people who said that need their heads examined! Being aware of the fact that what was done to you was wrong, and making sure that you take steps to not allow yourself to become the same person your abusive father was will keep you within your true Self. The Self that would never harm another human being. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Hallo Andrew, You have had a horrific time in the past, I really feel for you. If there is one thing that I can tell you is that a continuing cycle of any abuse does not hav to go on. I was abused for 22 yrs but today i am happily married with 2 wonderful healthy boys.
How did I do it, therapy and lots of it, if you do not like the therapist you see NEVER be afraid to change for a different one. It is very important that you find people with whom you can relate too.
Today after all of these years I still have therapy unfortunatly we never forget the abuse but we do move on and learn to live with it. Hiding it will only make it harder it will come out sometimes in sickness, headaches, nightmares all kinds of ways. We have to deal with it. And later in your life you might have to have more therapy which is okay you will know if you need more.
I wish you well and please for yourself do not give up on therapy get everything out:)
