A better person in spite of abuse...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You weren't "Satan". You were special and unique in your own right. You were worthy of love and dignity and respect. You didn't deserve to be physically assaulted by your father. He was twisted in his thinking.

You ARE a better person for getting over the abuse doled out by your troubled and misguided father (in the way you needed to) because you can now live your life to the fullest without constantly reliving the memories, which makes you a healthier woman; and that makes you a better mother to your four beautiful daughters, and a better wife to your husband.

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

All children are born beautiful , knitted togethr in their mothers womb so.
by: maurice

Oh undisclosed 17. Darlene is so right, You are not SATAN. At 17 after all you've been through I am sure you sure know that about yourself. You are just one beautiful, wonderful child of your mother and the universe. God created so. Oh yes you believe that about yourself. Only you can bring out that good beautiful feeling about yourself. I would say you have friends your own age who know you are beautiful as they are in their own right. Unique and special. Begin to say I'M SPECIAL Hi just don't say it BELIEVE it about yourself. That awful man abused you ever so badly that he is a bad, bad man, not a human being in the way he treated you. No child born deserves to be abused. Darlene, she really gives the best of caring, loving encourageing words to all her visitors. Do your best to make sense of them for YOU. Begin getting real help from those around you who truly love you for who you are in yourself and in their life. LOVE yourself by getting this help. Know the true friend in your life who will help you do what is right and best for you to begin to let go of the abuse that happened you. Be brave, be strong for yourself. I believe you will and I believe in YOU. Begin to see that prettiness of you in the mirror that beauty comes from within you so that you can acknowledge that prettiness in the mirror. Know too and say it to yourself I can accomplish anything I want in my life for ME

Blessings to all!
by: Rhianna

You did not deserve the beatings and welts which your father meted out to you, poor child. You were not the daughter of Satan. However, your father's behaviours were satanic in nature. He betrayed the trust which was placed in him as a parent.

You say that you have moved on from this and that you are a better person for it. I am happy for you that your life is currently positive and good.

However, I would also like to make the point that no two experiences of child abuse are exactly the same. Child abuse differs in nature and degree, as well as in the associated and surrounding circumstances. It is important that those of us who have not "moved on" are not made to feel less worthy because of this. Our self-esteem has already taken enough of a beating. As the saying goes "walk a mile in a person's moccasins before you criticise them". Every person's experiences and situation are unique to them and we must be understanding and supportive of one another.

Thank you for sharing your story.

May God bless and guide us all!!!

There is depth of thought and feelings put into people's comments for each of us.
by: maurice

Hi Undisclosed 17, I could not but be moved by Rhianna comment for you. It sure benefited me to reflect on. It is sure heart felt and totally honest and the truth. Thank you for writing your story to evoke such a very sincere comment. It sure helped me acknowledge what I believe myself that we can and should never make comparisons. I journeyed for a number of years on the streets with homeless people. The one thing I had to be sure about that while I was meeting alot of homeless with drink/drug related problems as to why they were on the streets. I had to be certain to listen to each one's story because each one had his/her own reason as to the why the reached the streets. Respect for each individual abuse is soo soo important. Thank you Rhianna.
