It gets better


This is an aquaintance's video...didn't know any of this until I saw it earlier today. I figured her story is one that needs to be shared. Even if some of you don't think it should be on here because it's not exactly "comedy".

I know that feel, i'm 17. My mom had me when she was 17 and my biological father cheated on her and physically abused her, so she ran away before i was born. When i was 5 my mom married Scott, a textbook narcissist who mentally abused me for many years. We moved homes between the summer of 8th grade and freshman year, at this point he became much worse than he had ever been before. He completely isolated myself and my mom from the world and the entirety of freshman year the only human contact i had was the bullies at school... And i let them bully me because, well it was far better than being alone or the treatment that my father gave me. I was placed in therapy in the beginning of sophomore year, at this point my mom was also in therapy when her therapist told her flat out that Scott was an abuser... I also hate that word but its what he was, so she began the process of divorcing him... It is still going on today over 2 years later, but at least he no longer lives here. About halfway through sophomore year was when i learned that he was an abuser... when my therapist called me out of the blue to tell me he had called DCFS and to expect them at any moment. I still felt i needed to protect him... This man who had made my life a living hell... It was then that i realized that i was allowing him to bully me, and since he was no longer living here i could make a change god dammit... So i did, and suddenly the therapy was a lot more successful. I was soon making friends and the second half of sophomore year i was acually hanging out with people, something i hadnt done since 8th grade with my old friends. I havent seen Scott in over 6 months however he still takes my 10 year old sister for visitation every other weekend. The last time he has tried to contact me was in March to tell me not to donate to the Red Cross to help the Japanese (Not joking, he literally sends me that)

Charactor count limit hold on i'm gonna reply to my own post

Wow, I could never imagine how that would be.
But good luck with your life you sexy person!
And as she said in the video, you are not alone. Get yourself a nice education and have a long, wonderful life! Hopefully you won't be haunted by your past! :D

It has gotton better for me, a lot better. I am no longer the little sad piece of **** i used to be, rather a real person again. I am no longer in therapy but i feel the effects today, most importantly close friends. I am dateless and i frankly dont care about that though, i have had the same crush for over a year now and really dont mind the fact that it is not mutual... But i guess all i mean to say by this was summed up in the OP's title... It does get better, sometimes you're going to have to work a little bit to feel better though

Though story girl
<--- these fellas only survived a genocide which took away all their possessions and their parents, they currently are starving to death, or already died, who knows, we only needed this photo for the newspaper.
They are lucky however because they never needed to put up "an act" in before their friends (which are dead now by the way) and their mothers didn't have alcohol problems and on top of that they never divorced (although they are orphans).
But they are feeling kinda sad, so I shall tell them to remember they are beautiful, special and loved, sure it will cheer them up!
