What you and your brother endured was beyond terrible; it was torturous. To be singled out by one or both parents for whatever reason as a child is to live in a constant state of betrayal, abandonment and complete rejection. A triple whammy.

When it comes to healing, I've come to learn that what happened to us at the hands of heinous abusers is less important than what we tell ourselves about what happened. As long as we continue to focus on the pain, we will stay in pain. I'm not talking denial. I'm talking about moving from one way of thinking to another that offers a sense of relief after paying homage to the emotions that surface. But it's a choice that each person who has lived in abuse must make. It's a conscious choice. And that conscious choice is easiest made when we are ready to see things from a new perspective. A perspective that brings self-confidence and understanding to the situation. A perspective that can help alleviate those awful tsunami nights.

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

MJ, your childhood is similar to mine, except that only I was singled out; my older brother is my parents' favorite and you're not alone. What sick, depraved people that your mom and your stepdad chose to be. They really missed out so much that they never got the chance to enjoy a wonderful relationship that they could've had with such great kids like you and your brother.
