Sometimes what we think is the truth isn't the truth at all. Sometimes we make assumptions based on what we think we see, but because we don't have all the information, we again make assumptions. You may also be harbouring some guilt, and with that guilt, you may be seeing your parents' response as "hateful" when it might not be. I don't know why you believe that both your parents hate you; you didn't go into any detail about that. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that they don't want to talk to you about it. Or perhaps they've done things that are harsh and send you that message. But it is possible that they believe that by not talking to you about it you will forget the incident. It may be that they are completely ill-equipped to deal with the whole situation, and therefore choose to try and ignore it. They may also be completely misguided about what happened and your role in it, and again, incapable of handling that in any way other than to ignore everything. They may also be ashamed of the way they handled it and don't want to talk about it. Of course, none of that meets your needs. You DO need to talk about it, but you can't make them discuss it with you. It's YOU that will have to decide how to respond and where to go from here because you can't force them to share what they refuse to share. Reach out to someone you trust. Seek out some form of counselling in order to help you gain perspective. Just understand that you did nothing wrong. Period. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy, Charlotte.
