I'm very concerned for your brother's children. If he was so willing to do this to his sister without anyone stepping in to stop him, he would likely do it to his own kids. When a parent resorts to violence, either themselves or as enablers who refuse to step in and stop the violence, violence that included hitting you in the face, leaving you with a black eye, that parent deserves to be charged with assault, along with the assaulter. Yes, I recognize that the statute of limitations applies. It doesn't change the fact that they deserved to be charged. All of them.

Although Christmas this year is now over, keep in mind that Christmas is what you make it. If spending time with your family is too much to bear, then perhaps it's time to rethink that decision. Make your own memories, memories that are in keeping with your own values.

Please seek out some form of counselling in order to help you deal with the memories. And always remember that as an adult, if someone assaults you, including your brother, YOU have the right to take steps to ensure he gets charged. Don't bother waiting for your parents; they clearly are twisted in the way they think. You deserve to be treated with dignity & respect. Start by treating your Self with that dignity & respect. Seek out the help you need. I send you love, light & healing energy, Toni. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The horror
by: Anonymous

What a sick, cruelly insane, deluded mother you had to walk into that scene, and then go to the therapist and just claim that you "deserved to be beaten" by your sick, sadistic monster of a brother; how dare she! You didn't deserve any of that crap; you only deserved love, protection, dignity and respect, all of which you were sadistically denied of. That isn't even discipline; that's just torture. If he didn't want to be there, then he should've had the courage to leave instead of sadistically abusing you; the path he and your parents chose is inexcusable. They didn't deserve to have such a beautiful, wonderful gift like you in their lives; most of all, you didn't deserve to have such an unbelievably ruthless, sadistic family. They should be in jail for what they did to you. They refuse to accept their own responsibilities. You are important; you are lovable. I really hope you're in a safe place now and that you look into reporting them ASAP.
