Casey:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Even just one incident of abuse can have long lasting effects on us. Your father reacted in a way that was so out of proportion to the situation that one has to ask what is going on with HIM that he would do such a terrible thing to his child. You mentioned that what he did to you was the way he and his father were raised. Yes, some abused children go on to abuse their children, but it doesn't have to be that way. What's important is to learn from the experience. You know what just one incident feels like; and now you'll ensure that any children you have will never have to suffer in this way, not even once. The fact that you've forgiven your father shows me what kind of a compassionate loving person you really are. I do hope your father isn't only just remorseful, but that he's seeking out some form of counselling to understand what and why he did what he did to you, his precious child. You said he has a terrible temper; that puts you at risk for more violence at some point in the future. If he ever does this again, Casey, please disclose it to someone who can help you. Don't blame yourself and don't keep the secret. Secrets like this ensure that abuse continues. No one wants that for you. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect at all times. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Your dad is out of control
by: Anonymous

Casey, your dad is wrong. You are not a nobody; you are a somebody...a good, beautiful, sweet, caring somebody. You are not a piece of s*** (please excuse my French!); you are none of those lies that he was spewing. Something's wrong with him and he needs help, but you need help too, so please tell someone you really trust.

you have it
by: Anonymous

in no way does he have a right to do that to you,
in no way but i am glad to hear you forgive him, it shows you truly love him and that is something to value, your ability to forgive because trust me it can leave in a whisper of the wind as his hand smacks your face. may g-d bless you. a may he never lay his hand on you again.
