You truly are an inspiration...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Besides surviving and finding your path toward healing and recovery, your greatest achievement is the fact that you have broken the cycle of abuse: I congratulate you on all of that, as well as for the fact that you are happy in your life today. As a survivor victorious, you truly are an inspiration. Older and Wiser, you ARE wise. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such an ignorant excuse of a world
by: Anonymous

Older and Wiser, I'm sorry that you didn't have a good family...No one believed me at all when I tried to tell them that my so-called parents were hurting me and that they [my so-called parents] tried to destroy and kill me; in fact, they always told me that it was "pretty much my fault", that I "deserved what I got", that I "was trying to dishonor my 'parents'", that I "deserved to be punished for being bad"...they even told me to "shut up, go home and quit trying to cause my 'family's' troubles"...so I lived with abuse and neglect...and never trusted anyone again except animals. Have you tried counselling? Be brave, Older and Wiser, and stay strong! I am hurting for you.

Always encourageing to know others have moved on from abuse
by: maurice

Behind closed doors alot was done in the name of Love, Discipline which was abuse. You were used and abused. Mothers who beat their children and treat them with harshness are co'abusers with others. Great you have found life after abuse.Be brave, be strong, continue to love your wonderful and beautiful self. Great you will make sure your children will be safe. You are one very gifted and enlightened woman. I am sorry your childhood and teeange years were unreal, with your innocence and vunerability used and abused. Think positive, act positive, be positive NOW. Your the best. I'M SPECIAL, I LOVE ME, GOOD ON YOU.

You are an amazing woman
by: Lois Ducharme

It is not easy to live with all the baggage you carry. Your strength to overcome the cycle and make a good life with and for your new family is commendable. Abuse is an awful thing. I cannot imagine how it must feel coming from family. Best wishes to you and your new family.
