In time we hate that which we often fear.
I had hoped my memoir would be a move forward for the family I was born into. I had hoped eyes would open, minds would race headlong to positive speculation, hearts would swell with hope, and peace would reign supreme.
Yes I was naive.
Yes I was delusional.
And yes, the coming to was a rude awakening for me.
But the rude awakening is not over, not for myself or the sisters who gave love and moral support, trust and faith in abundance.
I predicted in my memoir that my story could be my stone skimming the waters of our lives sending forth ripples of shattering silence. But it was the silence that held our pain in and us hostage that was suppose to shatter.
Instead, a few took up their armor and set out to annihilate one crazy little pest, me, their baby sister.
Fear was the motive.
Lies were the weapon.
Hate became the flames that singed and finally severed the tattered threads that could have bound us together. Family. My cousin once told me that family is family no matter what. But she did not know the single minded purpose of an incest family system, seek and destroy.
There have been times I was sure I was overstating the cruelty of the siblings bent on ruining me. How do family sacrifice one for another? Do they? My heart says no. My mind struggles with cold reality, yes they can and do sacrifice one family member for another, and believe it or not, they choose the disloyal victim to destroy. Nothing personal mind you, the family name and honor are at stake.
