Hey there Mario/Alex,

It's normal to feel this way. Have you considered counseling? Maybe that could help you out with some of the feelings your having. You can learn to get through those memories and heal once and for all. Sometimes sorry doesn't mean enough when you are abused by those who are supposed to love you. Maybe talk to someone that actually cares about you about this situation?

P.S. You did nothing wrong, I just want you to know that.

Hey Mario,

How you feel/react to past or present abuse situations will be different from everyone else's reactions. Maybe not by much, but reactions can differ. There isn't a normal or right way to feel about what happened. Also, forgiveness doesn't always mean healing. We all heal differently and just because you were able to forgive your abuser, doesn't mean that's what you needed to do to cope. It's okay not to forgive and it's understandable that you can't forget. What you're feeling now can very much be a follow-up to the past you've endured. However, we are not doctors and can't tell for sure. Though, only you know when something isn't right with how you feel. If you feel these imbalances aren't normal for you, then I suggest telling your doctor and they might be able to help you cope. They can offer you medications, or therapy might help more if you're feeling these things due to the abuse. Either way, I don't suggest you stay quiet. Letting your feelings out is a very big relief. For yourself, tell someone. It's okay to feel like that. If you need anyone, let me know. I'm only a PM away. Take care.

It is normal to feel this way but don't feel like you've done anything wrong, because you havent. Do you have a close friend or adult you can talk to about this? talking always helps.
PM if you need or want too

You're more than welcome, seeing as the OP seems to have gotten the advice he was looking for, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. If you have any more problems that you'd like help with, feel free to make a new thread. Or if you'd like to see this re-opened please PM me. That goes along with anyone who disagrees. :] Take care.
