When you take a traumatized child, who then grows up to be a traumatized (repeating the cycle over and over) teen, adult middle aged woman and subject them to the attacks, abuse, demoralization, humiliation with (metaphorically) a machete, what do you have?
You know it was easier to understand my mother once I came to terms with myself because she was a child in so many ways. I am not saying stupid and without responsibility but merely she didn’t have the tools, knowledge and support she needed to be the mother she wanted to be. And she too was a traumatized person.
You know you are in the present of “bad” when they know how vulnerable the victim is. They know they are weak and unable to defend themselves. So they put the nail in the coffin, making sure that person cannot defend themselves.
I am sure they didn’t expect I would write a blog.
