Any other Mom's on here that agree with this statement?
-My Mom found out that 2 of her brothers molested me and she did nothing. She even accused me of wanting to jack off my uncle and said she was going to press charges against me for false accusations.
-My dad beat me with a gun rod until I had welts on my body and then told me he would hate me until the day he died.
I wrote them both out of my life and I feel I have good reason. They were mean and hateful people. I've heard other people on CM say that no matter what you should be there for your family...I disagree. What are your thoughts?
I think there are some people we would should stay away from and this would definitely be the true in your case. When people say they wouldn't write off their family, they are talking about the family they have and the issues they are dealing with. Yours are a lot more serious, I'm sorry for all you have been through I hope you are seeking counselling. You have every right to stay away from people who are dangerous, you need to protect yourself.

I agree with you, there are lines that can be crossed to cause you to cut out people from your life regardless if they are family or not. I am sorry for what you went through and those are definitely lines that should have never been crossed, I would have cut them out too.

It's good you loved yourself enough to walk away from family who clearly did not love and respect you. I too had to give up on some of my family for other reasons and for me it's just distance not forever. If that happened YES it would be a deal-breaker for me too. I think sometimes people forget that not everyone has family that is loving, kind and respectful. They feel they wouldn't because they're looking at their situation alone. They need to try to put themselves in other peoples shoes so that they could begin to understand why some people have to walk away or put in some distance. I'm so sorry you were molested and that your parents did nothing to help you. That is horrible! I pray to god no other girls or boys in the family are being abused like you were.
