You really are worthy...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

NPie, you are NOT "pig" or "ape". You ARE worthy of having what sounds like a wonderful man in your life. You ARE a good person. As children we have no control over our environment or the way we are raised, but as adults we can take control of our own decisions. Your father and stepmother can no longer harm you, yet they continue to have power over you. That is because you haven't questioned your thoughts about all that happened to you as a child. You said you are 46 years old. That means that you've been an adult quite a bit longer than the amount of time you were abused by these two people. It would be a shame to live out your entire adult life re-living over and over again all those terrible abusive memories and believing all that they told you instead of living—truly living—the life you were intended to live. The best way I know is to question your thoughts. Byron Katie's book Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life is a great place to start. Her book is readily available in books stores. I strongly urge you to pick up a copy and read about her approach. I truly believe it's the answer to dealing with child abuse memories that don't go away. Counselling may also be a benefit.

But no matter what your decision regarding how to cope with your memories and self-esteem issues, that persistent man has stuck with you even though you keep trying to run him off, so I would say that good things are happening in your life.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, NPie. I hope doing so has been helpful to you.

that man you were talking about at the end seems like he could be a good match for you
he's right, you can change and don't have to live that way, if he's kind and sweet you can always give him a chance
if you keep trying to chase him away and he comes back that probably means he really cares about you
