James:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your father was terribly misguided, and likely lived through abuse when he was a child. Your brother was the product of continued abuse, and vented by taking it out on the first person he could: you. But you're the strong one within your family. You're the one who didn't succumb to the abuse. You have so much to be proud of, on so many levels. First, you used what you had endured as a way to make a difference. You forgave unspeakable abuse. You learned about abuse and what it did, and you realized that in order to heal your Self, forgiveness was the only way. Not forgetting was the key to ensuring you didn't repeat the inter-generational abuse with your own children. You, my dear James, turned pain into power...for that you can be so proud. Keep walking the path of healing and recovery, James. people like you make such a difference in the world just by being true to Who You Really Are. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such uncontrolled sadism
by: Anonymous

James, I can't believe that your mom would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick, sadistic monster of a father and allow him to beat and berate you 24/7...how dare he! Shame on her for running away from you all the time instead of protecting you from that beast! A mother who chose such a vicious beater over her own precious son is the mother who didn't deserve to have said son in her life. The path that your parents and even your brother chose was and still is inexcusable. Oh, and did I mention that he also abused your brother by grooming him into being a bully as well? They were really acting like little 2-year-olds trapped in grown-up and teen bodies because they were stuck in their own childhood. You are not to blame for their sadistic, ignorant behavior; they are to blame because they chose to abuse you. They had all the power and only misused it over you. Oh, and I'm glad that you're in a safe place now; I just hope that you try counselling.

It never ends

Thank you for your kindness.

The reason I have come back to this site today is that I have been having nightmares lately unlike any for many years. Nightmares about my father's abuse and my inability to get away.
At 60 years old, I am having horrific vivid nightmares about how things happened all those decades ago.
I can not understand how this can be.
