Many who were abused do ask the question "why". Most never find any good reasons why. What's important isn't "why" as much as "what". As in "what are you going to do with your life now". You were helpless as a child to a woman who was sick and twisted, a woman who had all the power and control, power and control she used against you. And if that wasn't bad enough, she had an accomplice, an enabler, someone who was equally responsible in the abuse. You could do nothing then, but how your respond NOW is what is important. You already survived the worst of it. What's left are the memories & the emotions attached to those memories & your thoughts about what happened to you. You now have the power to choose how you will live your life, how you will bring meaning & purpose to what you endured. As long as you think of your Self as a victim, you will continue to live as one. But when you begin to see your Self as a survivor & and a thriver, you will make choices in your life that are healthier, and you may well choose to make a difference in the lives of others, others who have had to endure a life similar to yours. I believe we're all on this planet to help others. How we do that is up to us. Help your Self first by changing the way you think about what happened to you, by gaining a different perspective. Then you'll be in a position to help others, which in turn will help you further. You're a beautiful person, Emma/Liam, one who deserves dignity, respect & love...always remember that. I send you love, light and healing energ. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

It's hard to know who we are when we were never allowed to explore that as we grew.
I'm so sorry you were treated this way. You never deserved it.

If we could answer why, our mind would be in a place that is illogical as theirs. It's better we don't even try. They were sick. Period.

I encourage you to dress as Liam and really think about how you feel. Strong? Empowered? Safe?
And the same with Emma. Just explore YOUR feelings. Write it down so you can read your thoughts. This is your journey now.

I wish you safe healing.
