    i can relate but not fully

    you sound like you have had a much tougher time than me but i understand the happiness you feel now they are gone, its like life just got put on super duper easy mode instead of being on brutal all the time, i know what you mean by not being able to realte at all to other people its pretty shitty

    The Struggle Is Real

    My father was mentally, emotionally, physically, and sexually abusive. He has been out of my life for the past 19 years, but the abuse I endured in childhood still seems to affect me in just about every aspect of my life. I struggle with low self-esteem, crippling depression seems to be my baseline modus operandi, and I feel as though in many ways it has left me in a state of arrested development. I feel like my past makes it difficult for me to relate to other people. I believe it could be valuable for me to share my experiences with others who have gone through similar things in order to feel less isolated as well as maybe benefit from others' insight, as well as to offer my own attention and insight.
