Children who are not abused, or otherwise assualted by violence or injustice are capable of freely expressing all their feelings. In doing so they naturally develop the skills necessary to experience intimacy in healthy ways. They also learn how to establish the boundaries they need that will allow them to feel safe when they go out into the world. We never got to understand what it means to feel safe. We never got to see life without the filtering shades of our abuse blocking out part of the sunlight. While we heard the mirthful laughter of other children on the playground, somehow we knew we could not share in their innocent joy.

How true!

Wow, thanks so much for mentioning me ste, I'm honored.

Thought I'd share this with you all. I know it's not by one of us... but I did put it in a message to philobat, so it technically is a quote on the board....

"We raise boys to live in a world in which they are either winners or losers, grandiose or shame filled, or, in the most extreme cases... either perpetrators or victims, the rapsit or the raped. 'I'd rather be a hammer than a nail,' Paul Simon sings. There isn't a man I have met who doesn't understand the chilling implications of that sentiment. If healthy self esteem is the experience of oneself as essentially worth neither more nor less than others, there is precious little training in the current culture of boys." (I Don't Want To Talk About It, Terrence Real p. 166-167)

I remember how much I liked this thread when I first came here back in May 2005. I still do! It's so cool to see the ideas we come up with, even as we struggle.

Dave, did you have any idea this one would still be rumbling along after five years? \:\)

Much love,
Larry
