Off my chest
I need to get something off my chest.
If you have read my blog from the beginning you know I have dealt with domestic violence. Well… without going into too much detail because I do not want to bring unnecessary drama to the situation… I just need advise, suggestions.
For so long I kept my children away from their bio father and family. As my daughter got older and moved out she got attention from that side. I have long said it is like a fishing pole and they would slowly reel her in. Could they have changed from long ago, I guess that is possible. But my daughter started showing ”symptoms”, behaviors that didn’t seem necessarily normal.
I have had friends that often questioned if she was ok.
It is almost like she in the beginning stages and is being isolated from family. We can’t place our finger on it. There is just something off.
Maybe this has nothing to do with her bio father/family, maybe it does. That is the thing, I just don’t know. But the signs are there. Things that we have dealt with prior to marrying my husband seem to be ok to her now.
I want so much to just spill the entire can of beans right now but I can’t.
As parents we just want to protect our children. Having gone through the abuse it is like you see things that others may not. There is something going on but do not know what it is.
This thing with my daughter has truly been bugging me. Suggestions? I don’t want her to fall victim like I did.

Ask her what’s going on. Have a close friend talk with her.
I’ve thought about that but even my husband thinks she will just lie. She gets extremely defensive.
