You are not useless and worthless, and I believe you know that deep down inside. You are precious and worthy and a very special person. Don't every believe otherwise. I don't know where you live so I can only suggest you try to contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page. I can only hope you live in a country that has this kind of help for children and adolescents. You certainly deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Please tell someone!
by: Anonymous

Selle, your so-called parents are wrong. You are not retarded; you are smart and articulate. you are not useless; you are strong. You are not a screw-up; you are perfect just the way you are. You are not worthless; you are truly worthy of love, dignity and respect, all of which you only get from your caring sister...you guys did nothing wrong. The sooner you tell someone, the better. Darlene is right. Selle, please tell someone you really trust (other than your sister) until they will finally listen to you and help you.

You're wonderful!

Selle,
I know you've heard this a couple times from comments. But I want to tell you that you are a very dignified, important, beautiful person. When your parents did that to you, they took away their own dignity. Not yours. You are not retarded at all. You are smart.

I don't know what your religious beliefs are, so I wont go too in depth with you, but I wish for even just a moment you could see what God sees when He looks at you. God is an amazing Father, Selle. Turn to Him. He loves you so very much. I have found a wonderful Father, Savior, and Sanctifier in God and I only hope that you will be open to His never-ending love. Don't be afraid to turn to Him. He will make your life great. You're in my prayers.

Always believe in yourself, I'M SPECIAL. I love me
by: maurice

Selle, my heart went out to you as I slowly read through your very real and true realing of where you are at a the tender age of 15. I have walked and journeyed with young people and their families now for a good number of years. Thankfully your parents are in the MINORITY but are there still in childrens lives. NO parents should undermine their children, nobody should. children and teeenagers are born beautiful, special, unique out of a mothers womb, precious. That is how they should be treated each day of their lives. Sadly many parents still treat their children by controlling them. making them feel inferiour, giving them a low self esteem of themselves which sadly effects them for a good part of their lives. Beating you is abuse on top of it all. You are intelligent Selle. continue your education, Think positive thoughts about yourself. build up a good mirror image of yourself. I can, I will, i must because I am worth it. You have copped your parents are totally wrong and unfair. putting you down, by saying all the negative things that you are in their eyes. Please do not see your self through their eyes. Begin having a healthy mind in a healthy body, love yourself, hug your yourself, let you trusted and respectful of friends hug you. I am sure you have a friend or two who you related your feelings to. told them how it makes you feel when your parents say negative stuff to you about you. I am not that person. I am one very special beautiful and wonderful tender aged teenager working many things out for myself, my sexuality, my education, my life right now doing my very best to think poistive about who I really am not who my parents say I am. Always believe in yourself, Have ahealthy mind in a healthy body. be active with others your own age group in teams or cultural activities. That will be a great relieve to you mixing with likeminded teens. learning that each one is unique in his/her own right. all equally maturing and growing at their own level of being. open minded ness sets in when you intergrate with other. You listen and learn how to cope and live your life to the full healthily and happily together. Selle, trust yourself to love, honour and rspect your own beautifulness especially your body and it's fuctionings naturally. I can, I will, I must because I am worth it. LIve well, laugh alot, love much. I'M SPECIAL. I AM THE MOST IMPORTANT CHILD TO COME OUT OF ANY MOTHERS WOMB ESPECIALLY MY OWN MOTHERS: sadly she does not treat you so. so you have to believe in yourself
