I maintain that sometimes, for the sake of our physical and mental health, that distance from our parents is necessary, even when it becomes out and out estrangement. I felt the same relief you did when I severe the relationship with my mother; as with you, a necessity in order to stop the abuse from continuing. Thank you for sharing your story and your thoughts on this pervasive issue with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy, John.

John, I can't believe that your mom would abandon you to that sick-sadistic monster of a dad and allow him to beat and berate you 24/7...how dare she! That's not discipline; that's just torture...and I'm sure that they had set you up for failure. That's not even about teaching you any responsibilities; that's just all about power and control; they are manipulative and I'm sorry to even believe that they really wanted you to fail just so they could keep controlling you. A mother who would choose such a sick beast over her own precious son is the mother who didn't (and still doesn't) deserve to have said son in her life. Oh, and speaking of what you described, I'm sure that when your parent were kids themselves, their own parents taught them never to have any emotions whatsoever. Not only did your parents learn those lessons very well, but they also decided that they would pass it along to their own children. However, what really encourages me the most is that you're not at all like that; in fact, you're a caring, compassionate person. You want to show and experience love alike and that's a nice thing. Don't ever lose that. You are not to blame for their sadistic, ignorant 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 chose to misuse it over you. Anyway, thanks for sharing your stories with us.
