Some words to consider...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Kathleen, your mother was—IS—twisted in her thinking. Something is terribly confused in her mind. Whether or not your mother loves you doesn't change the fact that you ARE lovable and that you must love YOURSELF. You can't change how your mother feels or acts, but you CAN change how YOU act by changing what you think. When you change what you think you automatically change how you feel, which automatically changes how you act. Words to ponder. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Even animals would never treat their young so sadistically

Kathleen, I hope that you're in a safe place now and that you try counselling. You are not to blame; those brutes or parents are really to blame because they should've loved you and cherished you. Be brave, Kathleen, and stay strong.

Always believe in yourself
by: maurice

I'M SPECIAL: I NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MYSELF. I NEED TO LOVE ME. Kathleen you have begun deepening getting to know yourself. Your Mother has done you no favours, she certainly did not love and cherish you as her wonderful and beautiful child out of her womb. She has all the difficulties with that not you Kathleen. You are aware now she did not love you. Her care for you was one of abuse. beating you, with the help as you call him a so called boy friend. A sick pair of adults. Darlene woman's insticts knows where you are coming from in the telling of your story. She has given you her heartfelt feelings with her professional knowledge encouraging words to work on. Kathleen, read them or rue them, I can assure you if you begin putting her words into practise you'll notice the difference almost immediately. I can, I will, I must, because I'M THE MOST IMPORTANT CHILD EVER BORN AND I AM GOING TO PROVE THAT TO MYSELF WITH A LITTLE BIT OF HELP FROM THOSE WHO LOVE ME NOW AND WHO I TRUST WITH MY LIFE. Yes, Kathleen think positive, act positive, be positive now in all you do and say about yourself. Hi wonderful and beautiful child of God, Child of the Universe look in that mirror differently. see the beuty of the human body, the beauty that was scarred and marked by that belt. Kathleen build up your own self worth, self esteem by seeing beauty in the mirror. let go of the memories of the times when that beauty was not liked or loved by your Mother. You cannot change her, but you can change yourself. When I was beaten on the bottom by my abuser I felt my bottom must be a very naughty part of me because this person wanted to make it nice by beating it. I now love my body and yes my bottom. if you get my message to you. I LOVE ME. nothing silly or wrong in admitting that to yourself Kathleen. Only you can build up your self esteem now. Hi if you get the opportunity tell your story to a counsellor/therapist they will make sense of what Darlene, me and annoymous have written to you.

Your so-called mother should have been arrested and convicted for all that cruelty and abuse and mistreatment that "she" ("she", indeed!!!) afflicted and inflicted you. Please get help and if you did, I want to comfort you that I am always keeping and nurturing and cradling all the broken children of all over the world, like you, in my heart.
I love you, Kathleen;-).

Kathleen, I hope you're out of that house now...and thank goodness you survived! You've suffered enough. Your mother and her boyfriend are mentally ill. Please tell someone you really trust.
