As a grown woman myself, I understand how it is that another woman would be to afraid to stand up to a violent man. But as a human being, I do not understand how a grown up of any kind will choose to stay with someone who abuses their child. Your mother had choices. She chose to subject you and her to abuse rather than give up whatever it was that the relationship provided her. And you paid dearly for that choice. It was her job as your mother to step up in some way to keep you safe from harm. And while I appreciate that you understand where she was coming from, I am concerned that you're doing so at the expense of going deeper into the pain you yourself are experiencing as a result of being betrayed by more than one person in your life. Please seek out some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of what happened to you. And do keep writing; it can be very cathartic. Thank you for sharing your story and your all-important message with my visitors and me.

Write that book- let people know how tramatic being abused, watching your mother being abused, by a bully can be. There are far too many people who just ignore what is happening to children and women in this country- this world.

Gloria, I can never even come close to imagining the fear you had to deal with. I would think that your circumstances of abuse probably made the fear more painful than the beatings at times. It breaks my heart to read some of the abuse stories on this site- then I fill with a controlled rage for not being able to intervene to stop what happened to you and your mother. No human being on this earth should have to live under those conditions of fear and pain.

I hope you receive ten fold blessings for every welt that coward caused, and I hope he gets what he deserves- I will pray he gets what he deserves.
You're good people Gloria S. Write that book.

Commending you!
by: Gloria O.

I truly believe your stepfather had the Devil in him. It's so sad that your mother was too scared of him to do what was right and protect you. I understand she was a victim too, but she was also a mother who should have used every ounce of her being to protect you. Remember you have risen above all of the bad that happened to you and have become a wonderful wife, Mom, Grandma and friend. By writing your book not only will it help heal deep wounds for you but help others who need to hear it. I'm sorry you had to suffer. No one should be so afraid but you have become a wonderful person that I can say I'm proud to know all these years. God Bless you always from one Gloria to another Gloria!
