  • Let her know that you love her and support her. Let her know that is worth more that what any man could ever pay her to be what they wanted her to be. If you can show her a reason to be stronger, then she will be. Good luck to you and I am sorry for your pain.

  • Did you ask her if she's ever been raped? Sometimes they don't tell when you ask. Sometimes they don't even tell when you do. Just love her

  • I know how you feel. My om reacted the same way. Im sorry you had to go through that.
    My life saver? It was letting go. Over time, i allowed change. I embraced the good and let go and forgave. God really helped me!

    Sometimes when we carry bagage, as a parent, our kids tend to feed off of that. We are what we hold on to. So i think its real important for you to start releasing some of that bagage your carrying. You are in control of your own life. You are loved girl.

    But, i think also , you could use your experiences to relate to her on some kind of level. Let her know; its not okay to treat yourself that way because you know first hand what that kind of thing brings"..

    Comfort her and be there for her like you hoped your mother would have been for you. It can be good therapy for you to be on the other side of the situation. Maybe you can find comfort as a mother, that you can and will be there for your daughter.
