This is a fast way to ulsers.

    You can't make them understand you. They have to want it.

    I'm currious... if you're willing to share... what's your relationship with him like now... you said that you still talk to him..... I havn't seen the jerk sence it happened... I honestly don't know what I would do.
    Well.. it happened when i was 10 and he was 16.. till i left home at 18 i had to deal with him and it was very traumatizing. Now, at 24 almost 25.... i have come to a place in my life where most of the anger and hatred have gone and I can see him and be polite, but I won't place myself in situations where I have to deal with him on a deeper level than that. My other brother is mostly understanding, sometimes i think he feels like he needs to fix the situation. he's always been very protective of me.. my parents are just from a different generation. so most of the time i understand that they do not think in the same way i do... but it can be frustrating..

    I'm with ya... it's a hard conclution to come to. But it was easier for me. I have Megan because of it (well.... my mom does). And I have been able to talk multiple young teens out of having children!! I wouldn't ask for it again... but it has given me insight and strength that I would never have had.

    to all. I don't really feel like talking about the past... But, its good to know that there is a place to come if I need to.

    And... I'm here for support of those who need a shoulder to lean on.

    I just want everyone to know that I really admire those who have come forward (and the many more who have not). I know I said this in another thread, but I'm constantly amazed by the courage and bravery of everyone who has told their story.

    Keep strong, survivors, because you're not alone.
    what if everything around you
    isn't quite as it seems?
    what if all the world you think you know
    is an elaborate dream?
    and if you look at your reflection
    is that what you want it to be?
    what if you could look right through the cracks
    would you find yourself--
    find yourself afraid to see?

    what if all the world's inside of your head
    just creations of your own?
    your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
    and you're really all alone
    you can live in this illusion
    you can choose to believe
    you keep looking but you can't find the woods
    while you're hiding in the trees
