    “You are too sensitive” is the language of bullies. My father, mother and older sister were horrific bullies. I developed a neutral face for being around them in order to deflect the abusive garbage they put me through. By the time I was 18, I was a zombie. I had become my parent’s good girl. I was thirty pounds over weight. They were angry that I was sad. They truly expected me to take their abuse with a smile.

      My family forbade sadness, too! I mean…what the heck!?! It’ slowly beginning to dawn on me that I didn’t need to go to school or the office to meet bullies…they were at home with me. Ugh!

    My father (who remarried 18 years ago) has said things along the lines of: “You need to be more of a b*tch…like..so and so”. “You need to stand up for yourself more” yadda yadda. But of course when I stand up for myself to his wife and him…well….that is just not on! We are currently estranged. Go figure!

    Dear Lenora
    Thank you so so much for sharing ! I jumped into this blog after reading your blog about jealous parents . I grew up in a Christian home , and my mum was weirdly jealous of my dad’s attention of me and so on. Growing up I met some normal Christians and families who’s parents didn’t accuse them of ” bringing demons home” and be jealous if their father spoke to them. I’ve met a lot of beautiful Christian people and I know all the crazy in my home had nothing to do with who God is. thank you for writing I now feel normal, I’m sorry for what you’ve been through. I’m now married and my mum recently had a fight with me because I inherited money she wanted . I hope you have a blissfully good married life in spite of things and make the most of every joy available !

    i’m so sorry to hear that, I went through something similar and no matter how hard I try to cry I just can’t let anything out anymore. I empathise with you and hope for the best in the future!
