family tree

This is my family tree which includes every aunt, uncle, cousins, grandparents and parents. I come from a family in which there are cycles of abuse. Physically abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, drug abuse, and alcohol abuse. All of this is in my family. So you can say my family is screwed up. Im a victim of sexual abuse and verbal abuse. I thank GOD that i never turned to alcohol or drugs. I refuse to be like the rest. I took my stand when i chose to speak out. I will not let my family tree define who i am. I have my own identity. My family does not define who i am. I break that generational curse right now. It ends with me. Im no longer going to remain a victim or feel sorry or ashamed. This is my family but this is not who i am nor who i will be.

  1. you are so right... you can break the cycle and shake up the family tree, giving yourself and future generations a hopeful future! what a blessing that you have realized this so young... that gives you so many more years to live in joy and see that the future of your family is free of all kinds of abuse.
