It's NOT your fault; it will NEVER be your fault...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Teresa, the abuse your mother inflicted on you wasn't about you; it's about your mother and whatever is troubling her. You are perfect as you are. I'm so glad you're now safe and in the loving home of your grandmother. Always believe that you're worthy of that love, because you ARE worthy of that love.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Your mother was out of control
by: Anonymous

Teresa, your mother is wrong. She is really to blame, not you. She really has lots of problems and she really needs help...but you need help, too. have you tried counselling? Have you told your grandma what your mother had done to you? I'm glad that your granny is with you now because she is so sweet for doing that!

Why? Oh Why? The mystery of life
by: Maurice

Teresa, I agree with Darlene and anonymous it was not your fault. Your mother had big problems of her own. I don't condone or agree with the way she used and abused her lovely beautiful child. She knew what she was doing and therefore as your mother abused you. For a mother to treat her child of her own flesh like that is a total mystery to me and has been with all the cases of abuse by mothers that I know of through the years. Mothers in particular are the most precious women of life, They carry their beautiful child in their womb for 9 months while the most beautiful of creation is being formed (A Child of God A child of the Universe) Then they lovingly birth that creation. It is a mystery that afterwards a mother in particular could treat that gift like a rag doll. Abuse is abuse. Teresa, you are that beautiful gift, child, Now you have to see yourself as such. with help, maybe a counsellor would be a great help to you. Other than that your closest of female friend or friends whom I am certain you have opened up to about the way your Mother treated you. I have no doubt you'll be brave and strong and really LOVE your pretty and beautiful self. Let go of those sad memories of your child hood. Let your mantra be It was not my fault. Teresa, look at that wonderful and beautiful ME in the mirror. Be kindness itself to that ME. Be gentle and understanding of that ME in the mirror. I'm Special and I am going to love that ME in the mirror. I can, I will, I must, because that ME teenager/adolescent/young adult woman/woman is ME. Hug that ME in the mirror and trust your closest of friends to hug you back to thinking positive, acting positive and being positive about your wonderful and beautiful self. That you are Teresa Always believe in yourself.
