Buddha - Life is Suffering - Don't I know it!!!
by: Anonymous

As I read your story, I could see many of the same elements of my own abuse, which started when I was around 8yrs old which I didn't acknowledge until I was 12 when I knew more about "things". I didn't tell as firstly my mother had a nasty temper and mostly was living her own life at that time and also "he said Mum had given him permission" which I must have believed. Through my teens, I cut off my hair, desexed myself, hated my mother, rebelled against everything/everyone .... Actually when I was 11yrs old I cried everyday, I was seen as a crybaby, no-one stopped to ask me why? In my late teens I was engaged to a controlling person, more emotional abuse, you are not worthy, you are nothing. Then I became anorexic and this continued for several years. After my recovery I rebuilt my self esteem, my worth and was grateful for having this opportunity to become a new me.
I am now 47yrs old, I'm married with two children. It took me a long time to find the "right" partner. When my eldest daughter was 2yrs old I went thought a very difficult stage coming to terms with my abuse and did everything to protect my own children from any opportunity for anyone to abuse them. I have recently realised that I was still angry with my mother for not protecting me, and I realise that I never allowed my Mum to look after my babies at night as a sign of not letting her allow anything to happen to my children. My mother has passed over 10 yrs ago, but I can now finally heal from this. Who would believe the evil that [some] men do and the long term affects of their actions? I know that I still have layers of healing to do. Thank you for sharing your story with me.
