OK...I liston to country music and right now Reba and Kelly Clarkson have a song on the charts called "Because of you". I know Kelly has it out on her own, but if you havnt heard them sing it download it they sound great together. Anyways, I really love this song. It really makes me think of people from my past who have hurt me. Either abuse or mental or some other form. I wanted to post one part of the song that really hits everytime I hear it. So here it is:

Because of you I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you I learned to play on the safe side So I don't get hurt
Because of you I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you I am afraid

Like I said everytime I hear it makes me think of the people who have hurt me and how they have played a role in the way I view the world today. I thought y'all could add to the list. So finish the line:

Because of you...............


I have more issues than Rolling Stone!

Because of you I am afraid to be who I really am
Because of you I am afraid to get too close to others

Because of you I have no idea what I was supposed to be.
Because of you my sexuality is a mess.
Because of you I've had to fake my way through much of life.

I have both positive and negative aspects of being a survivor... a few...

Because of you I am ashamed of my body
Because of you I am afraid of being alone
Because of you I hate myself
Because of you I am always waiting to be hurt
Because of you I almost drank myself to death
Because of you I learned to lie
Because of you my life has been hard

Because of you I had to become stronger
Because of you I am very careful to show people how much the mean to me
Because of you I try everyday to make a positive difference
Because of you I am a more consciencious lover - could never treat someone as an object like YOU did me

Because of you I have met the most incredible group of men in the world

Wow, what a topic. Here are a few I can think of right away:

Because of you I thought that sex is something that adults do to children when they're bad.

Because of you I figured that no one would ever love me.

Because of you all the world seemed unsafe.

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.

Because of you My soul was raped
Because of you I I experienced hatred & rage
Because of you My life was a lie
Because of you I died inside
Because of you I needed to hide
Because of you I hated the world
Because of you I lock my doors
Because of you I don't trust
Because of you I lost myself!

I'm a normal person dealing with abnormal experiences.

I'm not a country music fan, but this thread is still interesting...

Because of you, I lost my identity.
Because of you, I almost took my own life.
Because of you, I had 2 nervous breakdowns.

Because of you, I have had to rebuild my life. But, guess what, I'm doing it, God, because of you.

Because of you, my life is messed up
Because of you, my GF and I are going through Hell
Because of you, I am angry, confused, inadequate, isolated,
feeling sorry for my self, just to name a few
Because of you, I can't sleep through the night w/out nightmares
Because of you, I hate myself
Because of you, I no longer have a brother to love

But Because of you, I am going to become a better
person and confront you some day.
But Because of you, I will live the rest of my life in Peace.


From the Movie: Antwone Fisher
