what if
by: Scott 1 Canada

Hi Stephen..I endured a very similar childhood to yours. The war at home,the rage. My father continually made a fool of himself upon open his mouth, especially during his torture sessions. He earned no respect. I was handled much the same, peeing myself as my back broke through the giproc dangling from my fathers grasp. I sometimes wish I had children just so I could have denied him access to them. You were 5 years old when I was 8 and getting spankings in class that escalated to bare bottom, and yes in front of the entire class. What does a child, an adult, do with such rage and anger all these years later? It does no good to blame. No one seems to care because it was so long ago. Let it go, move on they say. Enjoy life. What if the whipping you described happened in school? Thats what I got in third grade. The memories so deeply burried it leaves me empty. What if that abuse happened in school? Is forgivness manditory? Get out of jail free? How does a teacher get away with whipping a nude child into unconsiousness? Oh yeah...it was different back then...right...I forgot. Now Im not angry anymore. I know my father had no regrets..but I wonder does that woman/teacher look back and regret her actions today. Does she look at her own grandchildren and think about what she did?

It ain't easy but the dead one who abused can bring closer too
by: maurice

Stephen. My guy is dead too: I live d with all he did to me until about ten years ago when I accepted he abused me but I live in denial until then: Trying to justify his abuse as being normal discipline at the time: All of his action came back to me from time to time and I accepted then ten years ago that he was an abuser: a pervert a sick individual; He knew what he was doing to me and all the other boys in his care: Your so called mad man of a father was far worse than my abuser: He was cruel, sadistic, beast, mental, control freak: a bad, bad. man: I am 64: so I was 54 when I buried all my abusers guilt and weaknesses with him so I coulod free myself of the memories: Please let go with the help of true and loyal friends who know you and who know your pain. A counsellor/thera;ist will assist you too: You can still live your life to the full: Don't let a dead man be the winner or controoler of you still: Forgiving him is a hyge thing in letting go Stephen but genuilely Let go: Don't forgive in parts holding onto certain memories of that horrific time' forgive in completeness let all your pain off with that forgiveness: I WILL: I CAN: I MUST: Stephen my prayer is with you: Darlene words are worth dwelling on for a few minutes: soak them into you and act on them:
