Abusers create Abusers

I want you to know something that may give you a little insight about me and lot of others like me. The abuse that happened to me is happening everyday to someone else. We read about it in the paper, see it on TV and hear about it from friends or family. We may feel sorry for that abused person and may even shed a tear or two. But, if we don't reach out and try to do something to stop this madness, then we really should save our tears. I believe with all my heart that abusers create abusers. In fact, I know this for sure, my family is part of that creation.

People may handle it in a different way, but it all comes out the same. PAIN, PAIN, and more PAIN! Some people become timid, scared of the world and everyone in it. Some people block it out, by being in denial. Some people blamed themselves and have no self-esteem. Some people become promiscuous, using sex as a cover up. Some people become suicidal; they can no loner take the pain. Some people withdraw, which is a major cause of depression. Some people become sexually confused, not knowing ex is not love. Some people turn to drugs and/or alcohol, addiction that could kill them. But the most dangerous of all, are the people who become mad. They let the anger and pain inside control them. That's when the innocent have to pay dearly. If the abused and abusers don't get help by receiving therapy and continuous counseling, we will always be open to a new generation of abusers. THIS PAIN AND MADNESS MUST END!
