Hi! This is my first time at one of these groups. I'm not sure if it's where I need to be... I am the daughter of a convicted SO. He has served his time and is now back in society. We do not have a relationship due to these actions. I'm looking for something/someone who understands what it's like to be related to these individuals that society deems as sooooo disturbing. I am not defending what he did. My father is guilty of his crime. I have read several entrys and it seems that most in this group are angry with the system & the way their loved ones are being treated. I am not that compassionate for the offenders-I know first hand what they are capable of. But, I do understand the guilt and shame that goes along with the nature of the crime. Am I in the right spot? I'm just looking for healing. Recent events have caused the events of 10 years ago to resurface and open old wounds.
