Remember, you can choose to heal and thrive, in spite of what happened to you as a child at the hands of a very sick individual. It's a choice each of us has to make, one that takes commitment, one that means we take responsibility for our own happiness in the Now. You survived the worst of it. Now what's left are your thoughts about the memories. You can't change what you feel, but change your thoughts, you automatically change how you feel, which automatically changes how you act. You CAN heal, Robbie, by taking control of your thoughts and choosing the healing path. Thank you for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me. As before, I send you love, light and healing energy.

it's clear as day
by: Anonymous

I think there is a point at which you break. It is when it is clear as day and you live with the memories as clear as day... like Frodo with the Ring of Power, he saw the EYE watching him until he destroyed the Ring and even then, he had to leave Middle Earth on a boat to the Gray Havens with the Elves to find peace and release from his pain. It is all well and good to talk about commiting to getting better, but what if you CAN'T... that the mind is able to take only so much then it just shatters... I have the same thing as robbie. My abuser is a grandfather and I had to write him and tell him that his granddaughter is at risk with him, that he is at risk because he lives in denial that anything happened when we were younger and that it could happen with her because he lives in denial adn that his behavior could deteriorate as he ages... I am glad I wrote him that. Grateful that I could express my concern for my great niece from a distance.

I wish you well, I wish you were better, Robbie, but I totally understand that you don't think you can get well... it is a struggle for me everyday. I am married for twenty five years and I know what is good in a relationship, but I struggle everyday to just BE happy... my memories flood me and I am sick still...
So God bless you and keep reaching out to people. People caused you these problems, and oddly, people are the answer as well... you are human and your mind and heart can only take so much...
