You don't know what you don't know...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You are a lot more inspirational than you give yourself credit for. YOU SURVIVED! YOU GOT OUT! That may have given your siblings hope, hope that they too could get out some day. Don't ever forget that, J. And stop blaming yourself. You wouldn't have been able to protect your siblings. Indeed trying to could have resulted in even worse consequences. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

dont blame yourself
by: Anonymous

i dont think any of what happened to your siblings is your fault so dont blame yourself for it. It's good that you still want to help. Perhaps if you feel you want to help now it's not too late, since your brother is going through some psychological issues maybe you can save him now? I think what you have done earlier is very brave. Your story is very inspiring.

Dont blame yuorself. i know its hard not to, i sometimes blame myself for not doing anything when my dad was raping my brother. At first my dad would send me to my room while he would rape my brother in the living room then he started doing it when I was in the room next to them. I didnt know what to do it started when I was 5 and my bother was 7. well atleast that i remember. Just keep on track and prove to everyone that your better than they think.

Don't keep carrying Guilt. It will cripple you. It was not your fault,
by: maurice

J1 you are one very special child of God and the Universe. Beautiful, thoughtful and caring within your heart. You have a big heart for your Brother and Sister. Siblings who never got a chance to be children of loving caring Parents. How can two people be allowed have children when they are so incapable of rearing them. Your Father was a mindless male with equally a mindless female of the human kind. both certainly were incapable of Love and respect of themselves not alone their three beautiful children. J1 you must not carry their guilt it was never of your doing that you were born into such a house. You nevr asked to be born into such a house. Equally your brother and sister. Your Father was a drunkard, druga addict, and mad his livlihood out of dealing in drugs for his own fix. No No excuse for all the beatings and cruelty he did to you and your brother and sister. Your mother was no help to you either. getting away from him and leaving you to suffer as the innocents in his sick mind. Great you got away, you certainly gave the courage to your brother and siter to get out and away too. so you did help them indirecttly without knowing it. You are all now in a better place. Recovery from abuse must be uppermost in your mind. Keep getting all the help you need. Slowly begin to let go of the awful memories you have of your father's beatings and cruelty. You will, because your hope is wanting to help you brother and sister. You must get well enough in yourself first so that you will be really able to help them. You truly are inspirational, you were brave and strong to get away from what you knew was not right. J1. begin to see your beautiful and wonderful self in the MIRROR. I can, I will, I must. I have my precious dignity, my self worth, I can value me for who I am now. Think positive, act positive and be positive each day you wake up. You have real help around you. Hi get out and about, mix with others who will love and respect you and help you to be involved. Be active, be alive, Have a healthy mind in a healthy body. Be brave, stay strong for you first and then for your brother and sister. I'M SPECIAL, I AM ME. I AM GOING TO LOVE ME BECAUSE GOD CREATED ME TO BE.ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
