A willing enabler for a system...and a sadistic beater for a stepfather
by: Anonymous

Jason, I'm sorry what you've been through. I can relate; my "parents" did the same thing to me as your stepfather did, and everyone outside of my "family" has always loved them and would never take my side...even going so far into acting like I never mattered at all and like I "deserved to be punished for being bad (just as they called it), and the like. Have you tried counselling?

Sweet Revenge. Is it possible?
by: Peter Schmedding

Jason, Your story touched me deeply. Although I was never physically or sexually assaulted in my young days, all the other events you related I went through. Just this example: the labelling "disrptive" you described is one of the experiences that happened to me as well. Kids ever so often are labelled and nobody realises that those become commands in the mind of the child they have to carry out. A program for failure.

So I also remember a destructive encounter with a policeman when I was eight. If only some of those had a dime of psychological insight.

Jason, the effects may never completely disappear. And yet I do believe there is another side to it. Those painful memories - provided we survive them - give people like us insights into life matters and opportunities to use this for the better that others do not have. In my case I left my native land as a result of being mistreated as a defenceless young person and built a new, and successful life elsewhere. That became for me sweet revenge. But it goes even further.

In your case, what have you gained from the events of your earlier life? You made the first step by disclosing the agonies you suffered. It always shocks me to read some of the letters that appear in Darlene's website. The abuse still goes on and so many kids are messed up, often for life, in our 'advanced' civilisation where all the wisdom is sitting on shelves never to be read by those who need it the most..

Once we realise that parents such as yours, in reality are like badly programmed computers who act this way because they don't know better, what can we do to bring some awareness into the world? Awareness that children need loving support within clearly defined limits if they are to thrive and not follow those dysfunctional examples that made a misery during our most impressionable time of life.

It is people like us who have the emotional drive to do our small part in producing a more enlightened future generation.

My best wishes go with you.

Being labelled as a child is most harmful and abuse. in itsefl
by: maurice

Jason, I sympatise with you in the extention of telling your story, You were a good child/teenager/adolecent youn adult, you were bright and inteeligent gifted to do well at school and college but your parents were abusive, were irresponsible as caring and loving parents. They treated you totally wrong, did you an injustice, The clowns of teachers & Police who knew all that was going on in your hous and di nothing about expcept label you more as being depressed and disruptive were co-consoritors to the abuse. People of position my butt. Big deal for that policeman to tell you he knew what was going on in your house. Then these people have the cheek and the audicty to ask you, me, us, as society to respect them. They have the nerve. Hi, Jason letting go of it may not be as easy as your are encouraged by caring and concerned people around you now but you must begin, talk to a counsellor/therapist who will re-assure you all that matters NOW is you and your own wel-being. Build on your own self esteem, Always believe in yourself, I can, I will, I must, Look in that mirror and love the wonderful, beautiful, gifted me in that mirror. I'M SPECIAL I CAN AND LIVE LOVE ME MORE EACH TIME I LOOK IN THE MIRROR.
