Breaking free is what counts. And so does breaking the cycle of abuse. Your mother had serious problems. She was twisted, cruel and her judgment put all of you at risk. She vented her troubled on you and your siblings. There is no way to know with certainty why the stepdad didn't protect his children from his wife. We can only speculate that he was weak and believed the good outweighed the bad. Our judgment of him doesn't really help. Nor does judgment of your mother help. What helps is reaching out for what you need in order to deal with whatever residual is left. Understand that any negative messages you received from her, both directly and indirectly have no bearing on Who You Really Are. Fact is, she has no credibility. Tell your Self all the good things about you. Live your life in a way that gives you true pleasure. When the memories strike, tell your Self that they are only memories, that they cannot hurt you, that they aren't really happening. Give your Self what you were denied as a child: love, dignity and respect. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy, Cindy.

The Horror

Cindy, your mother was sadistic. As for your step-dad, I can't believe that he would abandon you guys or even his own kids (your step-siblings) to the so-called care of that sick, sadistic monster of a mother. None of you guys (you and your siblings, to be exact) are to blame. It's great that you've been working to get out of that hellhole; I just hope that you try counselling.

This story is like a movie, I can picture it and see what pain not only you but your sibilings endured. Your mother is in her own hell now without realizing it.
