It is all about healing! There is a way to get through the darkness! I talk to you in a way that lets you know I have been there, and that I know the way out.
This book deals with dark social issues. Yes it is easier to sweep things under the rug, act like they never happened, but we will never make our world a better place by hiding in the dark. We need to heal, our secrets keep us sick and seperated from life. Join me, let's make a difference, let's brighten this world, let us HEAL!
This book is dedicated to all the children, past, present and future, who will be beat by the people they love. The children who will get lost along the way, dropped in the cracks of the system. It is dedicated to the damaged people, who had no choice as children, that need to know, they have a choice now.
Being lost is never easy, finding your way back to sanity is a very long road.
Some never make it back, and end up taking their own life, because the pain of being alive is too great. If you have never been abused, mentally, physically or sexually, I am grateful that you were spared this atrocity. You will never be able to relate to a person that has, because every abused person lives in their own hell. Somehow, I hope this may help you understand even a little, the deep torment, that we the abused, have to live with, and fight everyday to overcome.
My story as bad as it is, is a lot better than others. I know this, because I have been around the places we are forced to dwell all my life. I have heard their stories. Some had it better, some had it worse, but make no mistake. No matter the level of abusiveness, the kind of abuse, or the frequency of it. To that child, it was their very existence, all they knew, and because of the way they were forced to live, they never learned what healthy love is.
As I write this there is a very good possibility, that someone you know is beating their child, or children. Abusers are very private about the fact they beat, belittle, or molest children. You can't tell an abuser in a crowd, they appear normal in every way. It is only in the privacy of their home, where no one can witness, or in an institution, where a child has no credibility, that they practice their sick, deviant, destructive art.
Abused children grow up, and they get married, and they have children. The fact is, that if they never did anything to heal themselves, to learn a different way, then there is a very real chance, that they too will become an abuser.
