As children, we are essentially controlled by the adults who are responsible for us. Add abuse into the mix, and our lives are not only controlled, but manipulated and taken over. But that doesn't excuse our behaviour once we're grown. As adults, we get to make our own decisions, though that can be difficult when we have very little in the way or morality, ethics and values taught to us as children. And when it comes to children, they must be protected. You weren't protected by either of your parents or by the system. The terrible truth is that you were battered and berated by a father who was clearly sick and twisted, abandoned and betrayed by a mother who chose not to be present. As for your urges, understanding why isn't as important as ensuring you never become like your father, that you never act on your urges. Your father chose a path, likely as a result of his own past, that was filled with anger, hate, rage and hostility. He used and abused his children in ways that were vile and horrific. And your mother enabled him by sitting idly by in a drunken stupor (again, a product of her own past). You may not be able to control your urges, but you can control whether or not you are around children and like I already said, whether or not you act on them. Keep working on ensuring that you do not become anything like your father. That really is your choice. Find a way to turn the pain you suffered into something powerful. THAT will go a long way toward your healing. I send you love, light and healing energy, Robbie. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
