You are a "survivor victorious"...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

MTD, you have SO much to be proud of: You've shown that abuse does not have to repeat itself, and that one CAN indeed heal and move on with their lives. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Well done, You answered the Question Who Am I ?? brilliantly
by: maurice

Well done MTD you struggled for a good part of your life working through your abuse, your confused mind about it all but NOW you have ended up the winner over it and your very irresponsible and abusive parents. You were to best of your own childlike knowledge growing up naturally being TomBoyish etc. You parents should have been loving you by explaining certain protcol growing as a child in a family and in society instead of be-littleing you, doing not so nice and wrong things to you. Great now you have found your own self worth and self esteem and a true friend with a blessed child to live your life to the full each day you wake from your pillow. Live well, laugh alot LOVE much. Keep being gentle and kind to yoursefl first so that you can share it with the people and friends that matter now to you. Letting go of all the abusive ways your parents did it to you takes alot of forgiving. great you said Hi to you Mother on Mothers day. That is your natural love for your mother as having birthed you. How she loved and reared you as that beautiful child is what makes her abusive and very wrong. You've done you bit now for your own peace of mind. That is not acknowledgeing all the wrong she did to you but a natural re-action to say you birthed me but you were not a good mother to me. Well done, it was a brave step for you. MTD great you love being out and about in nature I find it exilirating being out under the sky. especially for me being along side running streams and in the middle of woods under the tree's. Being totally free to be free letting all blow away in the winds. Love the beautiful and onderful you in the mirror. Hug that person in the mirror. I'M SPECIAL AND I LOVE ME. A LOVING EXAMPLE TO YOUR FREIND AND YOUR DAUGHJTER. Darleen certainly in her brief acknowledgement of all you did gave you great and wonderful affirmation. Soak it into you.
