    Peg, when do we truly get better. When does the pain truly stop? I hate it. I hate I can’t talk to my siblings and even they had abuse too they were the scapegoat. I talk silently to my Therapist. He is good but, you stop talking about it with your husband so much because they can’t fix their pain and they want to. At least I am lucky to have one that wants too…I guess you can say your husband truly loves you when he encourages you and supports you to go into treatment. Love him because he never stigmatised it. You know what frustrates me but, ends up making me laugh is the judgement you get when you decided to see a therapist. That the people who judge you turns out to be far sicker than you are the person who gets therapy. I’m frustrated not because they judge me but because they want go get help their damn selves! Human Race would be so much better if they would just go get some therapy. I think the average person is ignorant on what good therapy does. Good therapy is whining and crying all the time(though sometimes you do just have to get it out in a safe place) It is for me a place that is safe and teaches me the life skills that my Parents were not able to teach me…. Oh, well. Everyone, love yourself today and love your children!!!!

    I knew the way I am was shaped because of my childhood but for a long time I did my best to deny that I might be unloved daughter. Every time this thought nags on me , I go on remembering everything good my mom used to do for me.
    But for some reason this article made it clear, like it spoke of me.
    What to do to change?
    As my feelings and emotions are ruining my life?

    This is so true, the self doubt can be crippling in work and relationships but especially with bringing up my own children. I am desperate not to pass on any of my insecurities especially to my daughter. Would be helpful for you to write about relationships with children.
