We couldn't be more pleased and remind her of this frequently
on December 8, 2014
It was interesting to read that I was not the only one that received this type of abuse, I got it with both barrels; physically and emotionally. However what I was really looking for was, why did I survive? Drugs and alcohol were never in the picture, My wife and I raised our daughter in the complete opposite of how I was raised. She has ADD and is now in the Masters program for Biology. We couldn't be more pleased and remind her of this frequently. I was determined that her upbringing be the mirror opposite of what I went through. There are some scars that I know will never heal, To this day I am envious of friends that have a close relationship to their parents, the big question for me is, what made me reject the beatings and the verbal abuse that I had received and not vent it on my own family.
