Phrases from my past

Because I said so.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Kids should be seen and not heard.

How many times do I have to tell you.

Go to your room.

You're grounded.

Get out of my sight.

You ungrateful brat.

As soon as you're 18, you're out of here.

You'll eat it and like it.

NO!

All you are, are a bunch of mouths to feed.

I won't say who said these things, there are so many more I just can't remember at the moment.

Obviously I have more healing to do but my past is a great reminder of why I do what I do.

Indeed -
I have these tapes that try to play like a bad rerun once in a while - and I SHUT THEM DOWN!

How lucky for your kids that you're the kind of person who learns from it and decides to change for the better rather than repeat the same patterns!

Another great post....I can relate as well to a lot of those. I can still feel the sting. I also see where I've done that with my own and that's an even greater sting. :o(

Piscesgrrl, I love your comment. That is SO true and is the path I'm on now, as I learn more and more about freedom!!
