It was not my fault, I know that for certain.
by: maurice

Jessica, You have a life to live, as Darlene has lovingly advised you counselling may help with your grieveing but it is acknowledgeing your abuse that you must get the real help for. Your father was not a good man, two faced half murdered you for a part of your life with your mother and sister and then was trying to make up to you. False sense of caring and loving as a Fther after all he did to you. Jessica you were an innocent child, vunerable out and out and he he took advantage of that. IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT likewise you cannot keep blaming yourself that he died tragically. not your doing either. So pary for him but do not let him stop you living your life to the full now. Live well, Laugh alot, LOVE much beginning with yourself. HI look in the Mirror and say positive affirmations about yourself. like I'M SPECIAL AND I LOVE ME. Don't be dwelling on the loss of your Father. You have others to live for now.

Love to Jessica
by: Anonymous

Dear Jessica, thanks for sharing this story. I came to this site because I also have parents I love who are abusive. It's really weird when you have memories of abuse, but then you also have really strong memories of having been loved. I'm still trying to figure this out, too. Especially, how to deal with the memories of abuse that involve my dad who passed away. I wanted to write to you and let you know you're not alone with the weird feelings. Reading your story has definitely helped me, knowing I'm not alone either. So thank you very much.

Natural Love--True Love---False Love--sincere Love--
by: maurice

Confusing to me especially when I try to make a sense of my abuser and all those others whom I know abused. LOVE is to each of us what we know it to be naturally. We learn that from the laps of our parents or Mothers who were single. My mother taught me by holding onto me from day one because I was born at time when Mommy's like mine were not good women and I was wanted by society because my mom was single. Then she went on to rear me wonderfully and lovingly for the rest of both our lives. Parents love by giving the odd smack so their children learn right from wrong. It is when cruelty in the beatings that their love becomes abuse. In a good number of cases they knew no better because the reared their children like they were reared themselves. No excuses whatsoever They abused once the beatings were cruel and sadistic. Their innocent children suffered at their hands one cannot call that LOVE. Jessica all you were put true was abuse. have no doubt about that. You need to get the help Darlene requests you. Notice I said requests you or to think about. No telling you to get help. That Jessica is what you have to do for yourself as we all had to do it before it benefitted us. I was encouraged and supported to get help but because It was others who kept telling me, others who abused me because I did not do what I was told. I said to my self this is a thing I have to do for myself if it is to benefit ME. I assure it was the right way for me. Jessica Ohio hold wonderful memories for me because I journeyed with 36 happy families when I spend the month of July their for three years with teenagers from Nothern Ireland in Canfield, boardman, Youngstown. I have no doubt you have a buddy, a friend, you trust with your life, She/He is above boy girl relationship whom you have related all you have to Darlene. They will help you to have the courage to talk to someone like a Therapist/Counsellor who will put you on the right road in your thinking and maybe confusion about your abuse. Hi Darlene and all her visitors especially those of us who have read your story and made a heartfelt comment. I can, I will, I must get the help these wonderful people know I need. Just for me Jessica. Darlene words to you will put you right. She wants and wishes we all take action and not just read her comments. She too had to take action. NOW look at where she's at in herself. A true lover of those who have been abused.
