I was robbed of childhood by my mom and thus my dad who enabled her. The Abuse at school did not help anymore. That inner child never got to live and now I am in my 30s. My mom has softened and been forgiven but the pain still lingers and my dad who enabled her still does and has not owned up to the pain he caused.
That inner child is trapped trying to get out but I’m too old now to have the joy of family.
