by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I've learned that it's not the lesson you learn from other people, but rather the lessons you learn for yourself that have the strongest impact in one's life. You experienced first-hand what your stepmother's drinking and abuse of pills could do to someone. She was troubled in ways you might never know; no one turns to such means of escape unless they need to escape from something. There's trauma in her life. Not that that excuses what she did; it doesn't. But J-- wasn't the only one who abused you; your father didn't do what he needed to do in order to protect you. He neglected his duties as a father. He knew she was drinking and abusing pills, yet he continued to put you in harms way. They BOTH have much to answer for. I hope you seek out some form of counselling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of the abuse you endured, as well as the responsibility you still feel for your stepmother; a responsibility you do not own. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Your stepmother is out of control
by: Anonymous

Olivia, something is seriously wrong with your stepmother because she has serious problems which she takes out on you and she needs help, but you need help too, so the sooner you tell someone about it, the better, so please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.

by: maurice

Olivia: Olivia: You'll be fine: Take Darlene's woman's heart words into yours: make sense of them because you truly are a gifted, intelligent young woman of 20 years: STOP this day carrying the problems, the hidden guilt your Step Mother is carrying deep within herself: Even your father does not know her: His love for her is shammy because if he truly cared he would not have allowed you to be alone with her: So olivia: get on with your life as you have realized that is the best way forward for you: She, must help herself: your father must help her: As for your good Self all you can do is hope and pray she will cop on: How she decides to deal with all her guilt, maybe a childhood of abuse, maybe whatever ain't no longer your concern: You get on with living your life to the full: stay safe: Be safe: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body: Now Olivia you will have a whole new perspective on yourself and your life if you get out there taking part with your own age and gender, with friends and fellow student playing in teams, and taking part in sporting and cultural activities: A whole new world will open up for you: Stay in education: I WILL: I CAN: I MUST: Because I am WORTH IT: Olivia be gentle and kind to yourself and your body, soothe your body with beautiful scented soaps, oils and hug and cuddle yourself in front of the mirror: LOVE the ME inner child looking out at you: care for that Me child which is you growing and wanting to be true to yourself in all you do with your LIFE
