I'd done a lot of inner child work in the past and had felt like I'd gotten past the deep stuff. But as more memories are triggered, I'm realizing now, 20 years later, that I still have a well of pain in my heart. Most of it is due to not being believed and due to my father manipulating my family against me. This had left me feeling humiliated, betrayed and extremely hurt. I walked away from all of them and have spent most of my adult life without a family. It's safer to remain completely separate from them, but it still leaves a huge gap in my life, especially at Christmas time.
