You are nothing
No one
And never will be.

You are a coward.
You can’t stop him
doing this to you.

This happens
to you
because you are weak.
Because you are worthless.

Switch off and go numb!
Go to the place in your head,
the place where you stop being here!
You know if you do not resist it will be quicker.

It will be over and done with
For now.

You deserve this.
You are less than human,
and when you are with people
they know you are worthless and
you can never be one of them.

You are alone.
No one will come and stop this.

    detached emptyness and the pain of self hatred,effects of extreme abuse in childhood usually
    recovery is a slow process sometimes it takes a life time
    change does happen never is a long time

  • It would seem that some damage is permanent both emotionally and neurologically (see prolonged cortisol influence and brain stem). I really don’t know if there is any sense of considering a traumatised person to be in a state that can be recovered to some kind of norm. I think talking to people who have been through similar, some people just learn to steer their ships away from whirlpools as much as possible. I’ve no clever answers. Just raw observations.

    can`t argue with science then,the laws of cause and effect
    i guess you are right richard,damage limitation is the best one can hope for
    chanelling the anger into something positive rather than negative supposedly is always the better option
    anyway happy new year and belated hogmanay greetings to you

  • Who knows. I know people who have experienced the most horrific things and appear to be as chipper as Lionel Blair on mdma… I guess it’s as complex as it is individual.

    Aye, happy new year to you. I spent mine in a protest camp making falafels a.d singing Barry manilow with kindred spirits.:-D
