I've always known that abusers were likely abused themselves. I am the adult child of an alcoholic and I am the classic scapegoat. My entire life, I have watched family members abuse each other. No one cares enough to stop the abusiveness. No, my daughter adds her name to list of abusers and that is the one that hurts most of all. When I hear other women thank their mothers for their guidance, I feel so small. I want my hija and I to hug and kiss, shop and cook together. Talk about life and philosophy. We share common interests in Buddhism, women's issues, a lifetime medical curse ... Denying this is such hurt to both. She has so lost her way. It is what should be and is the only medicine to heal this emotional chasm.
