I really don’t even know what to say, I’ve read different articles you’ve written over the years, haven’t been to them in a couple of months and decided to tonight and came across a link to this. I’ve never commented, that I recall, on articles, because of the usual trolls, etc. but after listening to this I feel compelled to. You know you are not alone. I was the younger sister in a violent household and have always been afraid of everything, especially people. I have outgrown it somewhat because I’ve had to but home was never a safe haven. I excelled in school because it was an escape from the terror of my existence. Like you, my father never hit me or my brother, but the brutal attacks on my mother are something I will never forget and never understand. What tears at me is that I should love my father and miss him (he passed), but I’ve come to realize as an adult, that I really don’t remember ever feeling like he loved me, it’s an awful, confusing thing that most people don’t understand. I just wanted to tell you that I truly understand what you’ve been through, I have so many awful memories when childhood should be joyful. I always prayed for “normal” and peace. Though that was over 25 years ago, the impact is longterm if not permanent. God bless you Trench, I’m glad you spoke the truth of you’re past
