The Evils of Abuse

One of the biggest fallacies that children fall victim to is they believe that they are somehow responsible for the negative actions of there parents. As a grown woman, I still find myself walking on eggshells and wondering what I might have done to set a negative mood in action. This is the strength of the person whom victimizes to cause one to feel as if they are responsible for another persons actions.
I somehow believed that if you push the wrong buttons or caused a situation that you were responsible for the reaction. I am ever so aware how wrong this is and how as a child or an adult we are only responsible for ourselves and our own actions and that we will not and cannot be held liable for the sins of another. I feel a darkness hovering and I want it to go away, but it is lingering like that of the night.
