    My husband & myself know all to well about the cruelty of a dysfunctional family. The healing moment came when we both rose above their ignorance with our own self worth & determination not to become a product of what we left behind. We are both no longer a victim of our past but a complete success of our present.

    I’m sorry for your painful experience. Please understand, I never felt there was cruelty involved in my situation. In fact, there was incredible love, but the residue of others pain can sometimes cloud the experience. I was blessed with a good home environment but had to find my own way through what I felt to be missing. You can read the details of my story when the book (The Life Unexpected: An Anthology of Stories and Poems) is released in November. I do, however, empathize with the many emotions that occur through divorce or any other family misfortunes. It is good to know you have found your peace.

    More of an acceptance than a peace. Some things just can’t be forgiven or forgotten… and I can live with that through grace.


  2. I won’t go into details but I can really relate to you. I’m not catholic and I’m far younger than you but there are times you really feel the absence


    • Hello, Boundrose. Thanks for stopping by. Filling the “absence” with those things that bring comfort, at the same time proving good for others, is what helps me get through. Believing in myself, first and foremost, serves to fill the void. All good things to you.
