Laughing through Life

Please visit : Three Word Wednesday

Today's words are Fawn, Juggle and Navigate

I watched as my father would fawn over my siblings

Me? I would navigate around his verbal abuse -

Justifying them, that it was my fault for being ugly in his eyes

Learning to juggle emotions, and laughing outside and dying on the inside

As an adult, I have learned we do not become what we are told we are

Though, it takes many years to realize it was not my fault. I still, am laughing



  1. Wysteria - I am glad you can laugh...and write..I hope the laugh comes from inside..just a the words..Jae

  2. Sounds like you and I had the same upbringing...

  3. Takes years to un-learn all of the hurtful things we go through as children at the hands of adults who (maybe) don't even realise how much their words and action hurt us. I'm glad you are wiser now.

  4. I am so sorry that someone who was suppose to love you chose to act this way.At least you rose above this and realized that he was wrong that you are worthy of being fawned over.

  5. It's always something. Keep on truckin'. Hold the mystery close if you can.

  6. Childhood scars take years to heal, but they do heal. I hope you find beauty in yourself, because we are all, every single one of us, beautiful. Both inside and out.

  7. I like how this writing starts off heavy and sad, but then finishes with a ray of hope. I hope your life mirrors this post in that way.

  8. wysteria: you are strong and forgiving. it's attest to your sweetness that you didn't take out your
    sadness on your sibling. {{hugs}}

  9. So softly sad. I feel this on many levels. Very well done and I commend your positive attitude. Abuse is abuse...physical, verbal, emotional. So sorry.

  10. Painful!
    Rejoicing that you have over come the abuse and that you know that it isn't your fault. I applaud you.

  11. Thank you all for the comments. I know there are many who have suffered many years too
