by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You are nothing that your stepfather called you. They were ALL lies. He was sick and twisted. He used his power over you, misused that power. All the things he called you, all the times he belittled you, he was trying to build himself up. This was about HIM, not YOU. Always remember that he LIED. Jaclyn, I learned a very long time ago that "hiding" child abuse, including the emotional abuse, only serves to make it fester. We can't circumvent what happened to us and expect to move forward in our lives in a healthy and functional way. Hiding will lead to haunting. The healthiest decision I ever made was exposing the feelings I had in therapy. Exposing my feelings in a safe environment eventually led to them letting me go. I hope the same for you, but you need help getting there. Please consider seeking out some form of counseling. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Youre beautiful
by: Sandra

Youre beautiful, and your strong. everything he has said to you is a lie, everything! when you remember some of the things he said to you, think that he said the opposite of the truth. because it is, none of it was true. because your beautiful, your strong and your worthy. and i can say that, because thats what i get out of your words. your beautiful, always remeber that!
