Your father is telling you LIES...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

First of all, your father is very wrong. You are NOT worthless. You are worthy and lovable. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Your father has deep-seated problems; problems that are about HIM, not you. HE is the one who is troubled. HE is the one who is not right in his thinking. Whatever is going on with him has nothing whatsoever to do with you. I know that's hard to believe or understand, but it's true. Something is wrong with your father, because loving caring and nurturing fathers DO NOT say terrible things to their children. And they do not hit them and lash out at them. Don't believe the lies he's told you, because they ARE lies. There isn't a single truth among them. I for one am delighted that you were born and that you found my site. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you read through the hundreds of stories on this site AND the comments that are attached to those stories. And as you read through them, pay heed to those validating and supportive comments, because they apply to you every bit as much as they apply to the person they were written for.

There are people who want to help. Talk to a trusted teacher or school counsellor. Perhaps the mother (or father) of a trusted friend. Perhaps a church elder or community worker. Consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you; and right now you need someone to listen to you, someone who can help you with your options, someone who can help you to understand that what's happening in your home is not your fault. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You don't deserve to live this way. Please reach out to someone for the help you DO deserve.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
