So much pain...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your mother traded your safety and well-being for a bill-payer. That is essentially what she did. And by doing this, she enabled the abuse. This makes HER every bit as responsible as your abuser was. And now you suffer the repercussions of that horrific abuse, and the ultimate betrayal and abandonment from the woman who was in charge of protecting you. Your mother is indeed a troubled woman who did not have her priorities in the right place. For that, you suffered and continue to suffer today.

Always understand that what happened to you at the hands of this sadistic man was not your fault. Always understand that you have ALREADY survived the abuse. What is left are the repercussions of the abuse, the thoughts you have of the abuse. Remember, you are no longer being abused. You are now in a safe place. Your thoughts of suicide are not about wanting to die; they're about wanting to be out of pain. But it's your thoughts that are driving that urge.

You were a helpless and powerless child. Both this man and your mother controlled you throughout your childhood. Now, at 22 years of age, you can take back the power the stole from you. And take back that power you must, because if you don't take it back, they continue their hold on you; a hold that they have no right to. But only you can decide to take it back. The only thing sadder than giving up your power for all those years is giving it up for even one more minute. You have already started the process by seeing a therapist and by writing your story on my site. Stay with the process. Confide in your therapist. S/he is there to help you, but only if you're willing to trust.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

My Heart Goes Out..........
by: Judy

Hello AnonymousL - My heart goes out to you in a big way. Please continue to see you therapist. You may want to also seek spiritual guidance - it is an option but depends on your beliefs. I believe that all things are possible through God. Have faith - believe that you have come this far - you can achieve whatever you set out to - you can go even farther. Never give up on yourself - as hard as that may seem - you can do it. We are all out here and we are in your corner - you are not alone. God brought you to it and He brought you through it for a reason - that reason may not seem clear but there is a purpose for each of us. You can one day turn your tragedy into triumph. Believe that - believe in you! Take care, Judy.

you need alot of real love from loving and understanding friends
by: maurice

What you've been through at the hands of this brute and inhuman being is most horrific, sexual, physical and emotional abuse all in one from this awful. awful human being, He does not deserve to be around people let alone be a stepfather to children. He need to be put far away from you and your mam. I know your mother is very special and needed help and support financially to make ends meet and give you the best. She did not need this monster to enter her or your life. You need alot of LOVE from real loving people now. You need loads of help from a counsellor and professional people for you to begin coping and living your life to the full. I hope you have one/two pals/mates/friends of your own age who you can relate all the awful stuff that you've ben put through. Not your fault, not your fault, The abuse of innocent children/teenager/adolecent is totally wrong. Being abused by someone Adult is never their fault. Never. Never Anonymously L. Please begin very slowly to begin to love yourself. Very, very slowly get on with your life. Begin to believe in your beautiful self. That you are beautiful in your own unique and special way. This brute of a man and your mother never told you that but destroyed your self worth and self esteem in all He did to you. Please get Help. Tell someone you really trust and who will believe you.

I want to help you
by: Anonymous

I am so sorry for what happened to you. Your story made me cry and I couldn't stop. It is so hard to think that someone could hurt someone in this manner especially the ones you love and trusted. I have no idea what you went through but I was abused growing up. Not near the extreme you was and my parents did it because they thought that they were being good parents. They hit my brother and sister and I too much and there was so much verbal abuse. I want you to know that there is hope for you and I want to introduce you to someone who loves you in a way you don't understand. Unconditionally, and just the way you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. God loves you so much and He wants to heal all the pain from your horrible past. He wants to fill you with His love and wipe away all your tears. All you have to do is ask Jesus Christ to be Lord of your life. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and help you live the life He always intended to give you. A life of love, joy, happiness, and peace that surpasses all understanding. He is wanting to heal and love you like you've never known before and I am writing this because I have an overwhelming desire for your healing and to receive His love. Oh, I begged you to just try Jesus Christ, I hurt for you, I can't explain it, Jesus Christ saved me from an overdose of drugs and alcohol and I wouldn't even be here if this wasn't the real deal. It is true and Jesus Christ loves you and wants to hold you in your grief and pain and heal you with His amazing love.
God Bless you and I will pray that you receive Him into your life right now, don't wait He is waiting for you. He died for you so you don't have to hurt from the pains and hurts of the world. You never know the life God wants you to have until you accept Jesus Christ His son into your life. I am going to school for Biblical Counseling and I come from many adversities, I can help you.
Love you lots, Melissa H, ministering spirit of the Lord.
