Forgetting may not be possible, but self love is key...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Phyllis, the hatred you feel at being judged today by what your brother does is the leftover residual of what you had to endure as a child. It is made even worse by the fact that you protected him when no one else would when you were a baby yourself, which serves to rub salt into an already burning, scalding skin of emotional abuse. That doesn't even take into account the physical abuse and neglect. Your parents are so twisted in their thinking that one cannot even consider that what they have to say has any credibility. Easy for an outsider to say, but perhaps the words of an outsider will help you to see things in more perspective. What they say or think doesn't matter, Phyllis. What YOU think and tell yourself is what matters. You deserved so much better. So begin by treating yourself in the way you deserved but never were treated. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The sooner you tell someone, the better!
by: Anonymous

Phyllis, I'm sorry for what you were forced to go through. Please tell someone you really trust because your psychotic father and criminally neglectful mother should really be locked up for all those terrible crimes that they committed against you and your brother...plus, what those sick individuals did to you guys is truly sadistic. No one deserves to be mistreated in any way! I will pray for you...

Kindred Souls you and I
by: Linda

Phyllis, I was reading your story and I thought I was reliving my own story of abuse and neglect. My mother use to lock us out of the house in the dark, to punish us. My dad grudged us food and clothing. He was a selfish drunkard who only cared about himself. We were beaten on a daily basis for no good reason. I really sympathize with you. I am an older lady, who is still trying to deal with the past. I tried everything to get rid of the pain, but the Lord was the only way out for me. I hope you are doing well now and are having a good life. I will keep you in my prayers. Remember you are not alone. Read my story of abuse...Linda from Alabama.
