you'll never walk alone again. always believe in yourself
by: maurice

Sophie 2, I'm Special, I'm unique, I'm Beautiful and I love me. Parents who put their child or children to the test so that they would re-act and then use the poor child to abuse it in all the ways you were certainly should never have had children. Ignorant and cruel individuals, uncaring, unloving and then getting the rest of the family to believe you were bold and you deserved it was very, very wrong, You are far too young at 15 to be relating a story of truth and honesty about your abuse. I believe you, I am sixty two and a story likes yours was as real and true when I was your age. Control freaks reared me or put me through my paces and put it down as discipline so I would get better. Beating the daylights out of someone and call it discipline and good for one was total abuse. for years I accepted that was the way it was done and almost made it right. But like you and it is great you have found a honest trusting friend or friends who have told it was abuse. Now Sophie 2 you can truly begin your loving of yourself and healing from the emotional truama and the bruises and marks from it. Darlene is good she has given you contact help-lines which will give you courage to believe in yourself, build up our self worth and self esteem. Hi Sophie, begin today getting a good mirror image of yourself, I am beautiful, and I love me, think nice and positive thoughts about your prettiness and your beautifulness. bring it out from within yourself. be gentle and kind to yourself. soothe away and distance those reminders of bruises put on you by your unloving and uneducated parents. just be really nice to yourself and hug that wonderful and beautiful you (ME) in the mirror. I can, I will, I must just for me. I can accomplish anything I want for me. make that your Daily Mantra by repeating a few times each day to yourself.

Your parents
by: Anonymous

Sophie, what your parents did to you is very sadistic. I'm sorry for the cruelty that you were forced to go through. I can relate; my parents did the same thing to me, too. If you're still living with your parents, please tell someone about it. Don't wait too long!

Seriously, get out of that house!
by: Anonymous

Please try to get out of that house as soon as you can, Sophie; you've suffered enough. your parents are mentally ill. As soon as you get away from them (and tell someone you trust), your healing can start in earnest.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Sophie, your parents are deeply troubled and sadistic. I know you want their love, but they're just too dangerous to be trusted. As for your relatives, they cannot be trusted neither because they've either been brainwashed by your parents or simply must've abused your parents themselves. You didn't deserve what happened; you only deserved love, protection, dignity and respect, all of which you were cruelly denied of. It's not even your fault that they hurt you; you are important; you are beautiful; you are lovable; they only blame you because they just refuse to accept their own responsibilities. I highly suggest that you tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.

The dignity you still deserve
by: Anonymous

Sophie, your story is kinda similar to mine and it's honestly disturbing. I hope you end up working to get out because no more secrets can and will help put an end to the cycle of abuse and helplessness.
