Endlessnight Posted August 23, 2010 Report Share Posted August 23, 2010 The abuse my brother inflicted on me and his children is now only verbal, but in the past it was both verbal and physical. What hurt me more than him abusing me was him abusing his children, verbally and physically. it was especially hurtful when he would punish my eldest niece, (who is grown up now), for spending too much time with me. I dont remember how old she was exactly, but not older than five or six. One incident I particulary remember is when she was in my room with me (our room actually since she slept with me) and it seems he had called for her and we didn't hear him. He came storming to us and grabbed my niece by her arm and screamed at her for not coming to him right away. Then he dragged her out of the room, she fell but he continued dragging her all the way to the living room, she had scrapes all over her face and legs. Just remembering it hurts so much. Knowing that because she loved spending time with me, he would punish her and make me feel guilty for what he did to her. He knew exactly what would hurt me the most and how to get to me.What he did made me feel responsible, even though I know I wasn't. It got so I was afraid to keep her in my room for too long even though she loved being with me. I would read her stories, colour with her, play games. I loved her so much, she was my life after my father died. He twisted my love for her and made it hurt so much I can't put it into words. He broke me down. Broke my spirit, my love, everything, until I felt there was, and isn't anything left of me that is worthwhile. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
