Instinctlively – I knew your behaviour was wrong! In years to come, incidents that I should have told you as my father so to protect and defend me I was not able as the incidents were similar. How could I tell you of the wrong of others when you did the wrong as well.
At times I can be all over the place emotionally – anger, rage, depression, embarrassment, denial – the damage has affected me in so many ways. Do you remember, are you sorry & why in the years following did you continue to treat us so badly?
