Wow, great insights. Too often, I think, we look back at what it was like to be a child from our current adult perspective. We can't help but do that, since we are now grown up with fully functioning, if impaired, brains and understandings. I've beat myself up forever about willingly going along with abuse. But now I'm starting to see that there can't be willing participation when you are not developed enough to know what's going on.
And the deafening silence after the chaos. It's just made the chaos echo throughout my whole life.
