I hold back and act out.....I don't speak up and I blame everyone around me.....they are responsible, not me.
If they understood me, I wouldn't have to hide and act out.
If they would show me some compassion....I would not feel so alone....
If they would just see me and reach out to me, my life would be different...
I blame my siblings for their actions when they were children living under constant threat.
I blame myself....instead of taking responsibility.
That was the system.....blame them, blame me.....but never live...
I am very tired.

There are men here to listen to you speak up.

There are men here who can and do understand you.

There are men here who have a great amount of compassion for you.

You are no longer alone.

We see you,

We feel for you.

This is your new system-connected with recovery.

We have to take responsibility for what we're not responsible for.
