Not Sure About The Details...

...but I am positive I was sexually abused as a child (I don't think this was done by a parent) I do remember the physical, verbal and emotional abuse I suffered for the first 18 years of my life at home. I was so angry for the longest time not understanding why my parents didn't break the mold and be better parents. I have figured out that they just didn't have it in them to be different. But I had it in me! My daughter was raised with love, praise, open-minded parenting. I never called her stupid, never played games with her mind and always, always SHOWED her that I loved her. I didn't just say the words...she knows it.

I haven't quite completely forgiven my parents but I am working on it. There's a lot of pain to get through so that takes time.

I am strong, I will forgive them eventually. But for now...not so much. :)
