  1. Reblogged this on Bipolar For Life and commented:
    I wish they could see and understand how they paralyze us with their verbal abuse, pounding, pounding away at the fragile core of our being.
    This one reminds me of a “joke” that was often told when I was a child:
    Daddy puts his little boy up on the mantle, holds his arms out and says, “Jump into my arms!” Little boy says, “No, Daddy, I’m afraid you won’t be able to catch me.”

    Daddy looks hurt. “Would I ever let my little boy down? Come now, jump! Jump, and I’ll catch you!”
    The little boy musters all his courage, and leaps off the mantle piece into the open arms of his father….who steps neatly aside, chuckling as his son hits face-first into the floor.
    When the blood and broken teeth have been cleared away, the father takes the still-sniffling child on his knee.
    “Now, why are you carrying on this way? Haven’t I always taught you never to trust anybody?”

  2. Wow. that speech the mother gives the daughter is almost identical to the crap I’ve heard from my dad over the years, anytime he’s trying to “cheer me up”. I think he means well, at heart, but he really just doesn’t get it.
