You are none of the lies your mother had you believing. None of them. You are beautiful and smart and the world needs you. Your parents were sick and twisted. Your mother had serious mental issues, issues that stemmed from her own past, issues that had virtually nothing at all to do with you. You were a vulnerable child, and that made you a target for someone who was broken herself. You didn't deserve that. You deserved to be treated with dignity and respect and love. Your father was, IS, a pedophile. He used your youth and vulnerabilities against you. He used the fact that your mother had pretty much rejected and abandoned you to his benefit. He groomed her, then was free to do what he wanted to do. None of this is on you, April. You did nothing wrong. You were a child with needs that your parents could not meet as a result of their own "stuff". They had all the power, and they wielded that power in completely inappropriate ways. But you don't have to live your life believing anything but good things about yourself. These people have no credibility. You can take your power back. Start treating yourself the way no one ever treated you before, with kindness and love and appreciation for the strength it took to survive the way you did. It now starts with YOU, April. Consider following me on my new blog for ideas on how to bring healing into your life. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

April, what a sick, sadistic, cruelly insane, deluded "mother" you had to walk into those two scenes of you being bullied/offended and just claim that you "deserved to be raped and bullied (I use this quote loosely)". You didn't deserve any of that; you deserved love and protection. Oh, and she's wrong too. You're not fat; you're not ugly; you are beautiful. You're not stupid; you're very smart. You're not worthless; you're worthy. I hope you're out of that house now...and thank goodness you survived! What she did is abuse, so TELL, TELL, TELL!!! And keep on telling until someone will finally listen to you and help you.
