What I Discovered About Child Abuse

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

Things I that I've discovered: 
1. There's no magic bullet. Recovery is a process. It's really long. You're always recovering.


2.There's something wrong with the person who traumatized you. Not you. If you are traumatized or abused by a person in power, it just means they like taking little power trips at the expense of other people. They are the screw ups. Not you.

3. Excuses are just weak attempts to cover things up. They have no merit. If someone is drunk or his Audi breaks down big deal. It doesn't matter. You don't take advantage of people.

And one thing I still need: I need someone to agree with me. To say What happened was wrong and "I hate him too." Then these things I've discovered list will be complete.

We are always discovering.

P.S Sorry for any spelling mistakes I havn't had my coffee yet:)
