No one can truly know the pain of another, even when they've been through something similar, but some of us can understand. Whether it helps you or not, I can't say, but I will tell you that I do understand the pain of a father who has a hair-trigger temper. The pain of a father who is so twisted with rage that he controls every single person in the house. The pain of walking on eggshells, waiting for that moment of rage to possibly go from simmering to boiling in 5 seconds flat. To know that the quiet in the house is basically the calm before the storm. What you were exposed to was horrific. Emotional abuse leaves very deep scars, and sometimes the wounds don't scar over at all; instead the open wounds seep and bleed for a lifetime. But only if you choose not to heal.

C, you're now left with the residue of emotional abuse. But trying to bury the pain of it all only serves to bury it alive. Eventually it will resurface because it never dies. And when it does resurface, it comes out in ugly ways that affects every aspect of our being: our friendships, our ability to trust, our ability to get & keep a job, our intimate relationships, even our ability to have or raise children, plus more. That's why it's so important to deal with the feelings & emotions you have...and you DO have them. I can hear them in your words. So please reach out to someone who can help you or at the very least listen to you. I strongly recommend you contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. You deserve to have someone to talk to. You certainly don't deserve to be abused. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
