Living a nightmare...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Larissa, I gather by the fact that you are able to share your story that you are no longer living that horrible nightmare. Your father doesn't deserve to be a free man. You certainly deserve to be a free woman.

Your story clearly shows what happens to a child when s/he grows up in an environment where both the child(ren) and one of the parents is abused by the other parent. You heard and saw the abuse of your mother at the brutal hands of your father. When you witnessed this spousal abuse, the message you received was that no one could protect you. After all, if your mother couldn't protect herself, then she would never be able to protect you. This is a form of abandonment; and abandonment in any form leaves a child alone, isolated and feeling rejected. Add to that, the emotional, physical and sexual abuse you were dealing with, it's amazing that you survived it at all. You were helpless to do anything to protect yourself, and you probably felt helpless to protect your mother, even though it wasn't your job to protect anyone. Your "job" was to be a child. Your parents' job was to love and nurture you and to keep you safe from harm. Instead, you were unsafe in their care. Now you must deal with the emotional scars of growing up with such terrible adversity.

Yes, writing can be extraordinarily healing on so many levels, so I applaud that you have taken this route. I also hope you have some type of support system in place, and that you are in some form of counselling to help you over any of the hurdles you find yourself dealing with. And if your father is still alive, I sincerely hope he was found and that he is spending the rest of his days behind bars.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, Larissa. And keep writing.

anyone who takes the innocence away from a nine year old does not deserve the name Human.
by: maurice

Oh Larissa, you certainly have a right to be as angry as you express in you telling of that man and what he did to you. You are one very strong woman, you deserve oceans of LOVE to be showered on you. I sincerely pray and hope you have a few very intimate and close friends who will do that. Hug you to bits so that you can ease away some of the anger inbuilt in you since that awful episode at nine years. You beautiful gentle, soft skinned body ruined by a sadistic neighbour of yours. He knew what he was doing to you, he does not deserve the name human or even animal in what he did to destroy your innocence. Larissa, Darlene's words to to you take them to heart, this a womans heart for a very special woman (YOU)I have no nieces or nephews but my friends beautiful children to know how awful that man was to you. THere married now all theee beautiful people but when they were your age in order for me to identify some what with child abuse I said to the Mam and Dad id anyone ever laid a hand on their innocent bodies I would personally go after them with you. Ever since Reading and hearing of innocent boys/girls having been abused I just keep asking myself the Question. How could anyone do it. ??? Oh Larissa through the helpful comment of Darlene please begin to LOVE yourself. I'M Special God only made one Me. Created and made me beautiful. Your beautiful both inside and out Larissa build on that FACT. Your a miraculous child of the UNIVERSE.
