I remember as a child, even though I faced severe "discipline" for doing something wrong, I believed for the longest time this was normal. That I had to just learn how to behave if I didn't want to get beaten or have my mom corner me with a knife. My childhood was hell but it wasn't until I was 10 that I realized my mom was wrong to treat me the way she did. What was your mindset toward your childhood abuse while you were still a child? This also includes sexual abuse.
