A Different Kind of Hell  

Posted by inkstainedhands in

Hell is when adults paint their own ideas of perfection over a child's natural unique traits and individuality.

Hell is not recognizing yourself in the mirror because the image you see is the same as that of any other person.

Hell is having a lot to say but fearing to voice those thoughts because you will stand out and be condemned.

Hell is having questions that are unwelcome and are greeted with hostility wherever they are asked.

Hell is feeling stifled because you are never good enough.

Hell is never being good enough because you are different.

Heaven is realizing that your individuality will no longer bring you pain and they were wrong.

First time visiting your blog...

I agree with Hell number 1 and unfortunately it can be the cause of many of the other hells..which are for the most part in our head.

SubWife -- Everything is relative. You're entitled to that opinion, and I am entitled to believe that those things do, indeed, feel like a kind of personal hell.

Shlomo -- Ah, but being literal is so boring and so crippling!

David -- Thank you. And yes, it does lead to many problems, and I think that it is just tragic when that happens and hurts the child for life.
