Jasmine:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You're heading down a path that will see you in more trouble than you can even imagine. I've been there myself. Instead of cutting, I was bulimic. I wasn't wanted by my parent. I was beaten by both of them. If I hadn't gotten the help I needed (in the form of therapy in my twenties) I don't know where I would have ended. You're lashing out because of what you've having to endure at the hands of not only both parents, but a stepmother you despise. Whether or not a foster home would be a better place for you, I cannot say. What I do know is that the only thing you can control are YOUR choices, YOUR responses. If you want to be treated with dignity and respect, treating others with dignity and respect is the answer, even when those others don't deserve it. This is a tough pill to swallow. But if you continue along the rebellious path, your parents have the legal right to make decisions for you that you will hate for a very long time. They can strip you from the ability to decide anything for yourself. Please consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. You don't deserve to be mistreated. You deserve to be loved. Reach out to people out there who are in a position to help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such cruelty
by: Anonymous

Jasmine, you were given a raw deal because your "parents" were so twisted that they didn't even know how to take care of themselves, never mind be parents to you. They didn't know how to love even themselves; all they ever knew was hate so they should've known better and loved and cherished you. Oh, and if they (especially your so-called dad) didn't want you to sneak out, then they should've had the courage to tell you about the causes and effects of sneaking out and then become better role models for you instead of brutally abusing you. The path that they chose for themselves was and still is inexcusable. Oh, and you are not to blame for their nearly-sadistic behavior; they are to blame because they chose to abuse you. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused it over you, so please tell someone you really trust.

Thats my story i forgot to add a few things...
by: Jasmine

Well if you guys read the story..i havent been in school...so i failed 8th grade...& its all my parents fault...
Im running away soon, cause i cant handle it.. Im a 100% sure foster home will be better for me. My family is religious & i dont believe in what they believe ,& if they heard i had sex or etc.. Theyed literally kill me. My dad said he gonna kill me when he was beating me up just cause i snuck out( what else am i suppose to do i dont get to see friends cause they think people that arent there religion is bad) but my siblings trying to stop him hitting me so hard. I wish i called the police but i had no phone to use.

Foster home or running away..
If i dont go to a foster home im leaving & i dont care if im on the streets so be it.
