From what you describe, your mother was taught by HER mother not to have emotions, and she not only learned that lesson very well, she has decided she will pass it along to her children. What is so encouraging to me though is that you, Lucy, are not at all like that. You, Lucy, are loving and caring and compassionate. You, Lucy, want to show and experience LOVE; and that's such a beautiful thing. Don't ever lose that. Don't allow what your mother and grandmother have decided for them Selves in their own lives to be your legacy. Choose LOVE. Always. You and I both know it's not you speaking nonsense. And it's so important to understand that what you have been forced to endure is not about YOU; it was about the anger and hostility of your mother, likely from her own abusive upbringing. Just know that you are not to blame. Consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency.

I send you love, light and healing energy, Lucy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror

Lucy, I can't believe that your dad would abandon you to your sick mother and allow her to abuse and berate you 24/7...how dare he! That's not discipline; that's just torture. The path that she and even your grandma chose is inexcusable. Oh, and they sound like ignorant people; in fact, everyone cries. Your life shouldn't have been used as a pawn for their sick misery. I really hope that you're out of that house now. they have the mindset that you are to be submissive and obedient at all costs, so please GET OUT OF THAT HOUSE NOW! Children are gifts to treasure, not to abuse. Oh, and I'm sure that they're probably frustrated with their own lives and chose to take it out on you; sadly, they never got any help that they needed because no one is helping them. Don't try to help them; try helping yourself instead; it's up to them to want help. 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, they just chose to misuse that power over you, so please get out of that house, tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.
