It's so understandable why you don't show love even though you feel it on a very deep level. You were abused and betrayed by the woman who was supposed to keep you safe from harm but didn't; you were abused by a family member who was supposed to be trustworthy and looking out for your best interest but instead took advantage of your vulnerabilities and youth; you've taken the chance of loving before in other foster homes, only to find yourself moved and then moved again and again. The question isn't "why" but rather, "why not". It's all based in fear, Lyn. Fear of what will happen if you trust enough to love again. But the human experience is one that needs love, and needs to show love. You're living proof of that, just by your loving actions. Actions really do speak louder than words. You're a remarkable young woman. And you are smart, very smart. You're living in a duality that is so confusing to you, but it's the questioning and needs that make you human. Trust is something that's earned. The people who love you know need to understand that. Trust is not automatic just because one can relate to what happened to another. And with trust comes risk. But it's a risk that we humans do have to take at some point if we want to expand ours Selves. Just because others have betrayed and abandoned you doesn't mean all people will. Go deeper into yourself, Lyn. You'll find the answers you're looking for inside the you that is your Self. And in that Self, you'll find Love. It oozes out of you already. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Try talking to your foster mom
by: Anonymous

Lyn, your so-called mom is truly messed up. What kind of a mom would want to make her child smoke pot or cigarettes anyway because real mothers would never do that?! She should've gone to jail for even forcing you to smoke. Oh, and try talking to your current foster mom about the abuse that you had to go through. Oh, and mothers who abuse their own daughters are one of the real abusers, so the sooner you tell, the better.
