Thank you for your words. Though I didn't experience abuse by the hands of my father, I did experience words by the use of his words. As a female, my expectations were to be complacent, to not speak up, to do as you are told, to follow rather than lead, as I grew older I was expected to stay in a marriage where I was not loved, to not speak of my troubles because of the "que diran", despite the fact I wanted to scream, to yell, to break free of the chains that had bound me since a young age. Now at 34, I am slowly starting to make peace wih myself and with my dad and mother. I am slowly starting to see that they did the best that they could, however, it doesn't make this road any easier. I question myself a lot, fear that I am not good enough and worry that I will never find my way in this already complicated life. I hope that I, like others with your experience find light in your words are are able to continue their path to restoring their strength.
