I don't think your letter was any longer than most of mine! lol! Yes it does sound like we have the same curse. The fact that your father was abusive might have something to do with it, although your siblings weren't affected as much. Birth order factor could have something to do with that. I was abused in a different way (you were referring to beating-up abusive, right?) so that's why I wonder if I learned to send out a signal (body language) to discourage people from approaching and perhaps hurting me, and its picked up subconsciously by those around me..
Or perhaps its just the way low self-esteem makes itself known and people instinctively pull away from someone who might be emotionally needy?
(Or do they? I've seen people who sulked and whined continually and were still popular!??) I could guess at it for hours, but I also guess at how to improve things. I've tried improving my looks and becoming involved in things which would give me interesting things to talk about, but both are difficult when you are broke, busy with kids and suffer from acute anxiety (sometimes) when you have to leave the house. Anyway, if you'd like to correspond, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com
Thanks for the reply!
