I don't think you realize what kind of a person you've actually become in spite of coming through your childhood in such horrific abuse. You're at a time in your life when it's not unusual to look back and wonder about your choices and where you've ended up. But this time in your life can also one of re-birth, but only if you allow that to happen. Please consider seeking out additional counseling, counseling that can deal with the feelings you are now experiencing. What's past is past. The future is not yet here. There is only the present moment. Grab onto the present moment and live your life as the person you are today. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Wise words
by: Michele

Thank you Darlene for your wise words,

I have read what other people have had to go through here on your website and do not feel quite so alone.

It is Autumn here in the UK and for the first time I was amazed at the colour of the leaves on the trees!!! A big deal for me as I had never noticed how beautiful they were.

You are so very right that the past is the past. My pain is perhaps as vast as the Sahara desert but truly believing it wasn't my fault means I can move properly forward.

All of my children are fast asleep and looking contented. Maybe I have everything that is important and can leave the ghosts where they belong?

Thank you again. Your site is a lighthouse in stormy seas.

Michele, I am so sorry for what your twisted excuse of a mother did to you. Most people who treat someone the way you were treated often do it out of jealousy because they think that they couldn't be such a shining star that you are. You are a star...and an angel too! Oh, and it is wrong for your sicko of a mother to try and convert you into Satanism...not to mention moving you to a house full of Satanic devil worshipers. You know why she did it? Because she is jealous and sadistic. She didn't want you to be happy and have the perfect God she never had. She wanted you to be miserable just like her...but don't ever let her do that to you ever again. Be happy, believe in God and his son and keep living your own life if you can. Haters and Satanists are not worth the time. You might also want to try counselling. Peace out and God bless.
