Hi Guys,
Pretty powerful post. Yes I was also worthless, it was drilled into my head from the moment that I was born, until my 17th birthday and joined the Air Force. But and it took me until last August to realise that I wasn't worthless, as my T also gave me a list to work on.

I have made my comments on various posts about being worthless, etc.

But the thing that has stuck in my mind lately, is my past voices from hell. I got these messages in a flashback/dream. As I had heard from my sexual abusers that "see WE NEVER TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE WORTHLESS" just your "mother" did.

And then I sent a letter to HELL,to my "mother".

No there isn't such a thing as a worthless boy, or another human being for that matter.
Heal well my brothers/friends.

Pete (Irishmoose)

"What turned the corner for me was when she asked me, "Larry, can you imagine such a thing as a worthless child?"
Actually, yes, I can. I was one and still am.

Lars,

Thank you for being there for me when I needed someone to be on my side.
Caring enough to share your experience and pick someone up even when you’re down yourself is awesome, kind, and self-sacrificing. There are few things more valuable then that.

You are a cool dude and a fine man.

From one damaged soul to another – hang in there, we need each other.

Juni

p.s. PM me anytime.

I'm glad to have helped. My own recovery, improvements, steps forward, however, are not worth anything -- to me or anyone else.
