Isn't it interesting that the people who have no credibility—our abusers—are the ones we take the word of, the ones we want to impress the most. As children and youth, we are desperate for our parents' approval, yet when they are abusers, we still take what they say to heart. But what's most important, Anonymous, is what we think of OURSELVES, without the judgment of others, including our parents and peers. Your father has serious problems that take away what he would otherwise have available for others. That's not an excuse, just an explanation. Whatever pain he's in comes from his own past. It has nothing to do with you. You are not the lies you've taken on about your Self, the lies that you've embraced as a result of being rejected by your abusers. You are worthy, you are lovable and you are needed on this earth. The trials and tribulations you are dealing with right now may ultimately be the very experiences you need in order to make the world a better place, difficult as that is to believe at this point in your life. This would be making purpose out of what you've endured, turning pain into power. Focus on your gifts, your passions. Nurture those gifts and passions. Become the person you are meant to be, in spite of what you're dealing with at home. And when you need someone to talk to, consider contacting Australian Kids Help Line at 1800 55 1800. KHL have counsellors who will listen to you and discuss your options. The service is available 24 hours a day for children, youth and young adults between the ages of 5 - 25. Their counselling services are free, confidential, and you can remain anonymous.

You are worthy of dignity and respect. Start by giving that dignity and respect to your Self by calling the number above. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me.
