No doubt about it, Violet, you've been dealt a lousy hand. As a child, and now as an adolescent, when you should have been making friends, experiencing all the wonders of growing and growing up, you've had to become the parent to your parents. You've been robbed of your childhood. And if that isn't bad enough, you've been labeled an outcast at school and have had to cope with bullying and all the crap that goes with that.

As for the perverted kid with the dysfunctional, probably now divorced parents, for goodness sake, stay away from him! His sexualized behaviour tells me he's likely been molested. He's what would be termed a "sexually intrusive child." Nine-year-olds don't typically exhibit such aggressive, sexually charged behaviour unless they've been victims of a sex offender. I realize these details don't necessarily help you deal with what happened to you with this boy, Violet. The reason I'm bringing it up is that you've set a tone in your story that tells me you are highly analytical, and that this is the type of information you would seek.

I'm glad you are now feeling contentment in your life. You deserve that. Indeed, you deserve a whole lot more. You deserved—and STILL deserve—to have loving, nurturing engaging and encouraging parents. You deserved to have parents who were both mentally healthy. You deserved to have parents who parent you, rather than having parents who themselves need parents. If there was a magic wand that could make it all go away, I would send it to you in a heartbeat.

Let me tell you what I've learned about you: You are a loving, giving, nurturing soul. You articulate yourself with great precision. You are quick witted. You have a sarcastic but magnificent sense of humour—that sense of humour endears you to me because we share that funny bone; it's a side effect of self-preservation. You need to know what I call the "wheres and fore-art-thous" of all that happens; you have a genius for analyzing that Sigmund Freud and Karl Jung would be envious of. Indeed, this may be your calling.

My hope for you, Violet, is that you find a way to break away from the analyzing long enough to deal, I mean really deal with the emotional baggage you've been forced to carry. You are definitely worth it.
