Hello! Yes! I’m here! At the age of 55 my sister spoke with me about why I got the worst out of our father. She told me that Her and my 2 other siblings did not believe what my Dad says about me! It was a bit of enlightenment to me about how I see the world meaning, people around me. I understand why I make up conversations in my head about anyone in my vicinity are having about me! Always negative. I do it as easy as breathing! ! I don’t know if you are having the same response to strangers in your life that I am but, I am working on suppressing those voices. I hope you discover what your healing is!
Control is a powerful weapon and some parents cannot surrender it. My mother told me she would have me arrested and put in jail if I tried to leave home before I was 21. She chose my clothing, hair style, and sat next to me if I got a phone call so she could tell me what to say; I was not allowed to go anywhere without her except for school; I could not have friends over or go to a friend’s house. She forced me to attend a junior college and ride back and forth with my brother since I was not allowed to have a driver’s license.
