Hi all,I went through alot of childhood and young adulthood abuse and trauma and I am still dealing with that to this day I am in therapy and have a wonderful therapist that I am working hard with to make some changes in my life but also my past is very haunting and still very present as my parents live only a few towns away from me and she works in my town at a restaurant and there is always the chance I run ibto one or both of them at a store or somewhere and it is as frightening to me as when I was a child and going through abuse in one or more forms daily and I feel just as fearful of them.I do feel a void of having been born into a family but them never being that to me far from it,I struggle in that way sometimes when I see a mother and daughter together or parents with there children I feel jealous and envious of that relationship and closeness and love because I nver had it nor was wanted or loved by mine,other times I can see those things and smile and be thankful that those children are loved and cared for and wanted.I am just wondering if anyone else has gone through things I have and if they can offer me any ideas and or suggestions and give me some advice on how you got over trauma and abuse and if you haven't and it still affects you how do you cope with it and deal with it on a daily basis.Thank You.Kim
