THIS IS THE TRUTH
Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2016
I was wondering what love was since I have never felt love in my life. This thought first came from a religious perspective which states that without love you have nothing. I don't think that I have any ability to love. I bonded with my father rather than my mother, but this was a very limited relationship because just as I had never seen an example of familial love, neither had my parents. I kept reaching out to my father but with no success.
I have a good memory of my early childhood, and this book reinforced what I had already suspected. While I took the blame for all of their disappointments in me, it was they who made me what I was.
I lived to get away from my mother. And I had decided by the time that I graduated from high school that I could not put another child through what I had been through. I would have been exactly like her because I had never seen an example of a child being loved.
My mother did not want to be a mother. This book explains why I am the way that I am today, anxious and isolated and not being able to socialize.
The learning disabilities that I had were monumental, but at least I lived during a time where I was not labeled.
I scored poorly on the Stanford Binet test and overheard my mother say to my dad that she guessed that I would never amount to nothing.
This book is so important, and if it makes women feel guilty, so be it. How the mother treats the child determines the child's future.
I love animals, and the thought of using them for testing makes me sick. But if testing animals will make people understand what they are doing to their children, it is worth it and PETA be damned.
