Katrina:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Always remember that it isn't what others think of you that's important, it's what YOU think of your Self that is key. You are worthy of dignity and respect and love. Start by treating your Self with that dignity and respect and love. You cannot control what your parents say or do, but you can control how you respond. Recognize that when they say and do terrible things to you, it isn't about you, it's about THEM. They are in a dark place, a place where they lash out at those they can lash out at. Whenever they call you names, tell your Self that those are lies. Then tell your Self the truth: that you are worthy, smart, articulate, loving, compassionate, all the good things that are true about Who You Really Are. Katrina, if you choose to write more, you're welcome to contribute another story here. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Katrina, your parents are deeply troubled. I really hope you're out of that house now; thank goodness you survived! Oh, and you're none of those soul-stripping lies they told you. They have the mindset that you are to be submissive and obedient at all costs; please get out that house; PLEASE GET OUT NOW!!! Next time they lay a hand on you ever again, please consider reporting them to the cops ASAP; children are gifts to treasure, not to abuse. I'm sure they're probably frustrated with their own lives and chose to take it out on you; sadly, they never got any help they need because no one is helping them. Again, I hope you're out of that house now; if not, please tell someone you really trust (yes, that includes teachers).

So little love shown
by: kristen

My heart goes out to you. All those years of trying to please and not seeing love. Of trying to protect your little brother out of love and not receiving love. What to say. I don't know. Just to let you know I read what you wrote.

Get out of that house!
by: Kevin F

Please try to get out of that house as soon as you can, Katrina. You've suffered enough. Your parents are mentally ill, violent people who are using you as a dump. They won't change.
As soon as you get away from them, your healing can start in earnest.

The sooner, the better...Kevin is right!

Katrina, I agree with Kevin; your story is honestly disturbing and it makes me mad that some people can do something so horrific to their kids. I really hope you're out of that house now; spilling "secrets" can and will help put an end to the cycle of abuse and helplessness.

None of that crap is your fault and, again, I hope you're out of that house now and that you tell someone you really trust (other than your friend and his dad).
