To In Shell:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I understand the insecurities, the inadequacies, the lack of trust, the anger, hostility and hatred. Your father believed that he could beat the willfulness out of you and beat you into submission. He was deeply misguided, and the effect was to leave you with long-term consequences. But those consequences do not have to continue to rule your life. You can choose to see things differently, but you'll need help doing that. We can't change how we feel, but when we change how we think we automatically change how we feel and in the process automatically change how we act. I strongly suggest you seek out some form of counselling or therapy in order to help you deal with the repercussions of what your father doled out as discipline. This is important, because the anger, hatred and hostility will consume you and continue to affect every aspect of your being. This is no longer about making your father unhappy, it's about how unhappy YOU are. You do not have to stay "trapped in a shell". You can make a different choice. And though you didn't deserve to be abuse, you certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Did he think it's manly?
by: Anonymous

In Shell, your so-called dad is deeply troubled and sadistic. I hope that you're out of that house now...and if not, you can and will be in further danger and that beast can and certainly will continue to brutalize you because he himself has no respect for you and your rights as a human being; he's proven that already just by those nasty injuries that he's already inflicted upon you. He has the mindset that you are to be submissive and obedient at every single cost, so please get out of that house...GET OUT NOW!!! Next time he lays a hand on you, please consider reporting him to the cops ASAP. You are NOT being disciplined; in fact, you're just being abused. What he did to you is NOT manly at all; in fact, all of his actions are cowardly because only a coward would do such things to such a helpless little boy you once were. Oh, and you didn't cause him to abuse you; he chose to abuse you. Oh, and you didn't cause him to be miserable; in fact, he chose to be miserable, even going so far into making sure that you're just as miserable as he is. As for your mom, she could've done more to protect you from that sick brute. Anyway, you are not to blame for his sadistic, cowardly behavior; he is to blame because, like I said, he chose to abuse you. You were the child; he was the adult; he had all the power and only chose to misuse it over you, so please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you. Oh, and please look into reporting that sadistic beast as well.

RE: Child Abuse Story From In Shell
by: Zach F.

I have been researching child abuse at my school and I think that people could learn a lot from your story. In your writing you showed that child abuse does not only hurt physically but also provokes a feeling of insecurity. I can only imagine what you have gone through but I hope you are able to persevere. A horrible thing has happened to you but the best thing that you could do at this point is make every effort to get back up and keep going.
Best of Luck,
Zach
