    No. I knew my childhood abuse wasn't normal and was wrong. Others though, family, school, friends & their parents looked the other way so that complicated things quite a bit.

    Parental - yes. (I believed it was normal but I didn't deserve it.)
    Other people - no. (Didn't believe it was normal, but believed I deserved it / they know better in the circumstances.)
    Partnerships - yes (Believed it was normal and deserved. Every single one of them.)
