Please consider some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of all that you had to endure. You deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

They don't know what they do
by: Peter Schmedding

Donna, your story is one of those that could make one lose faith in human nature. The way you were treated, just reading it is a hard pill to swallow. Anyone who labels children in a negative way, and especially as your step father did from day one, is simply anti-life. I can understand that you may never feel able to forgive. I can only hope that some sort of counselling will help you to understand that such people have been conditioned (maybe even by generations before them) to feel bad about themselves. In fact so bad that they have to infect their corrupted mindset to all those who are under their control. It has become their 'default mode'. They, in the truest sense of the word do 'not know what they are doing'. So I can only hope that, while forgiving such abuse may too big a task, you might find some comfort in understanding why they act in the way that you have experienced for all those years. Understanding why such people act the way they do leaves the door open for you to look forward to a fulfilling life after all.

he had no right to do it and i can't see why you would ever want to forgive him.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Anonymous, try not to confuse forgiveness with saying that what happened was somehow okay. It wasn't okay and will never be okay. You see, forgiveness is not for the abuser, it's for the survivor of abuse. The anger and hatred and hostility that threaten all aspects of ones life let the survivor go when forgiveness is present, and that in turn allows the survivor to truly move on. But forgiveness can only come when the survivor is ready to forgive.
