Clearly, your mother was deeply disturbed. The way she mistreated and abused you has nothing to do with YOU, but everything to do with HER.

It's easy to know on a logical level that something isn't true. Not so easy on an emotional level when you've been rejected and abandoned throughout your childhood. That's why it's so important to go into yourself on an emotional level. When we try to heal through logic, the healing is incomplete. We're always left with anger, hostility, fear, plus a host of other effects that stay with us throughout our lifetime.

You ARE enough. You WERE enough. You will always BE enough. That's the message you must deliver to yourself on an emotional level. Whenever the old tapes/messages come back to haunt you, you must reverse the negative self-talk. No one has the power but you. You have no power as a child. That was taken away from you. But as an adult, you can now take that power back. And you must take it back for healing to take place.

There are a multitude of reasons (explanations, not excuses) for why you mother did what she did to you. I've written quite a bit on why target a specific child for abuse, and by all means, read through it. But not for the purpose of getting angrier or more hostile, for the purpose of understanding. No excuses, just an explanation for the unexplainable. With such insight, you might find it a bit easier to find emotional healing. You certainly deserve such healing, David.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy.
