Tyra:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I certainly understand needing and wanting to protect yourself. But you said you've been removed from that abusive environment, so please keep in mind that violence is not the answer. It will only beget more violence, and a lot of trouble for you if you use such measures. I do hope you're in some form of counselling to help you deal with the repercussions of living what you did. And always remember you ARE worthy of dignity and respect. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You're not alone
by: Mac

Tyra;Get yourself & stay somewhere safe, & get some support & coundeling. Hurting people, hurt people; don't let the pain of what you went tru make you do hurtful things to those who abused you or to others. Keep posting. Know we are here for you! Healing comes in time, but it does come. My parents used to make me take scalding hot baths. I thought that was normal, how sick is that. One day I had had enough, & I didn't want to take the bath. I wanted someone to protect me, or keep me safe, so i took my puppy in with me. It had scalding burns on it, & died from a heart attack due to the shock on it's system, & died. so sad that I lost my puppy; but I never had to take those baths anymore. And other sad things i had to endure. Don't go back.Be safe & get the help you need.You are not the unwanted,abused, person you were brought up to endure & see as who you are. God has a good purpose for all of us.It saddens Him when we endure such pain.the enemy meant those things to destroy you, mentally & physically, but God has a better life for you. He got you tru it , & if you trust Him, He will help you heal & have a better life.He has done it for ole Mac, & I know He can do it for you. In sharing your story, it helps you heal, & process thoughts/experiences, as well as help someone else , where-ever they are on their journey into hope,light, love. You are preciouse Tyra!

I agree
by: Rachel

I agree with Mac... God has a purpose for everyone one and fighting back is not the answer... maybe take some counselling and don't wrry... healing will eventually come...

I am better than them, I am not going to stoop to their level.
by: Maurice

Tyra, you are brave, you stay strong, you are inteeligent, you know better than to allow yourself to use violence to get your own back at them. Please read Darlene's comment over and over again, take ownership of it for yourself, She's knows your strong feelings, She was abused too you know, she more than like had such strong feelings from time to time but became a winner over her abusers. She did not allow them to be winners over her. I thnk you get the message very special and highly inteeligent one. They used and abused you wrongly, cruelly, badly. They were bad. I just read in my local paper here this morning that a Step-Father received 12 years for the horrific abuse of his daughter. I say not long enough, Darlene thankfully safeguards me and her visitors from really expressing our real anger and feelings on her site about such people.
Thank you Darlene. TYRA, please know each of us who read your story love you to bits, want what is the best way forward for you NOW. Counselling is the best way forward. You be your gentle self, be true to the wonderful and beautiful you NOW. Live well, Laugh alot, love much, Beginning with that very special me in the mirror. Let go of wanting to get your own back (even though it is a natural re-action for anyone who was abused) Tell on them to the authorities, Begin to have a life of your own away from them, have one or two real buddies/friends that will love you for the brave and strong young woman you are now. Oh yes, Tyra have a healthy mind in a healthy body, get out and about intergrating and mixing with like-minded people in taking part in sporting and cultural activities. There is safety in numbers. I know you will be gentle and kind to your body, slowly erasing the bruises or scars that may be still there from those abusive people. soothe them away with all the modern oils and creams for such purposes and massage your body. Then get out there valueing it and respecting it. Naturally accpet it, stay safe, be safe and you'll do that by Always believeing in yourself. Tyra, read Darlene's comment to you.

From Darlene: I moved your comment to this page, Tyra, so that others who left comments here would be able to read what you wrote. And I'm SO proud of you for staying in counselling and getting the help you need. Sounds to me as though you are well on your way toward healing and recovery, and that you have a supportive foster mom to help you along that path.

walk with her: Talk with her: Be gentle and kind to her
by: maurice

I am almost certain that is exactly what you are doing right now: Keep your sharings simple and let her know it is your heart that is trying to speak to hers: Not head to head: Yo may never be the winner if you keep it at the head to head level: Friends are heart people for me and I hope me for them: When we reach that level of loving, caring, sharing, trusting, respecting then I believe we have a true friend: We have circles of friends not levels or easures: Last count I had fifty circles: Tyra I know you know what I am saying: The circle of friend your friend is right now may not listen to you as a closer circle of friend might: Be patient with yourself inwanting to help: Do your best to relate and communicate your heartfelt feelings and leave the rest to God or a higher power: Your heart will tell you if she needs a counsellor: if she needs to speak with a medical person: other than her family or so called friends who do not care for her as much as you: Those she hangs about with doing the drugs: There not her friends: Tyra; I hope you are in a good space for yourself: Having a healthy mind in a healthy body: I've left you a few comments because I care about you: I want what is the best for you: I hope and trust you want what is best for you: Live well: Laugh alot: Love much: Why?? because I am WORTH it:
