While I appreciate the compliment you are giving me, I must say that no one should strive to be like me. No one. Each of us is unique. Each of us responds differently to adversity. Each of us is walking a different path. But the one thing that is across the board is that we all have the ability to choose how we are going to respond to what we are put through. If we believe we have no options, then there are no options. If we believe we'll never be out of pain, then we'll never be out of pain. If we believe we will always be controlled by someone, then we will always be controlled. What you believe becomes your reality. But within the scope of your own choices. You can't change how your mother responds or what she does. You can only change how you respond. Make a plan for what you want in your life, Anonymous. You want to help other children...that's a very noble goal. So now the question is, what are you going to do to help yourself first so that you are Present the way you need to be in order to help other children. Instead of thinking about all the negatives in your life, find the positives, difficult as that might be. Focus on the feelings you get when you find something positive in your life. THIS is the key to breaking away from the terrible things happening. Your mother has serious problems that she has been taking out on your for a long time. That's not on you, that's on HER. Don't take on the beliefs she has about you...recognize the wonderful beautiful special person that you you. Recognize that you have so many gifts to share with the world. And that the world is a much better place for the fact that you're in it. BELIEVE that. Don't believe the lies that you've been told. You have tremendous value. Never forget that. I send you love, light and healing energy, Anonymous. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Don't give her what she wants
by: Anonymous

You don't have to continue living like this. Have you tried talking to a college counselor yet? If you think no one is on your side, then think again because Jesus is on your side; Jesus is on your side because he loves you and he wants only the best for you...but you have to give him a chance first. Have you read the book titled "A Child Called It"? I've read that book and it's about a young boy who was abused, starved, tortured and almost killed by his own mother on different occasions. As depressing as that book is, there's always a happy ending because that boy forgave his mother, learned from her mistakes, moved on with his own life...and even got married and is taking good care of his kids. Break the cycle now! It's never too late! As soon as you tell someone, you can get out of that hellhole and live with a sympathetic relative or someone qualified to take real parental care over you, so please tell someone!

The Horror

PLEASE GET OUT OF THAT HOUSE; PLEASE GET OUT NOW!!! Next time she lays a hand on you again, please consider reporting her to the police ASAP because children are gifts to treasure, not to abuse. No one has the right to lay a hand on anyone because abuse is a vile, nasty thing. Where was your father? If you think no one cares, think again because I care; Darlene cares; people who visit this site care; I'm sure there's a lot of caring people out there...and if people want to help you, then you have to let them help you, no matter what. I know you're scared, but you can do it; you don't have to be scared anymore, so please overcome that fear and tell someone; keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you!
