Anxiety Support

#METOO?

I am the Adult Child of Abusive Parents. As a boy, the abuse was hidden behind closed doors. Today, the abuse has shifted to damage control. I imagine for fear of exposure of their past, my parents continue to convince those around them (Family & friends) what a bad kid I was. This after nearly 30 years of my continued absence. Yes, you would be AMAZED at how many people their poison rhetoric has reached......just through Face Book!! So my question is why are my parents not to be held responsible for their past?? Seems to me, the breakdown of our country begins in the home. So why do abusive people continue, unabated??!! I say it's time for this lands' justice system to address the REAL issues!!! #Abusers are losers.

I agree totally, Patrick. Maybe you will never find the peace of mind you deserve until you have the satisfaction of knowing justice has been done.

I think you should report the abuse you experienced to the police. Your parents are accountable for their past and must not get away with it.

Honestly, my peace of mind comes from forgiveness. I view an abusive person as mentally ill. I just pray they find Gods Will and their own peace of mind. As damaging as my own story is to me, my parents suffer no less I'm sure. After all, being acidic is no way to live. My faith is what keeps me moving forward. Thanks for your support. Peace.

I've been physically abused too when I was a child. And been diagnosed with anxiety after leaving a complicated marriage and now being a solo parent. I am hoping to get back on my feet soon. I got a fight with my mother just today and heard her saying "crazy". Can't wait to move to another place so my child and I can truly have a life of our own. It is too much to bear that the family that you consider a family are the ones tearing you down. And I hope you can manage your life living with abusive relatives. I pray for healing everyday. Exodus 33:14" and he said, my presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. "
