Trances of hate . . .
by: Darlene Barriere - webmaster

Belinda, when you hate yourself, you blame yourself—you are NOT to blame for what happened to you! He was the adult, you were the child. It wasn't your fault, Belinda, it wasn't your fault! You wouldn't blame your 2 beautiful daughters if this had happened to them, so why would you blame yourself? This creep took advantage of your innocence; he should be put away for that. It's no surprise you wouldn't trust people after what he did to you.

As far as learning to trust again, only you can do that, Belinda, like you said. Only you can make the decision to see a counsellor. If you choose to keep the pain completely to yourself, you choose to never trust again. You choose to teach your daughters that if anything bad like this happens to them, the way to handle it is to keep it all inside.
