There are people who claim that if you were abused as a child, you will abuse your children. End of story. However, if you go through therapy to get help to learn how to break the cycle you may succeed at not carrying on the abuse. And then there are people like me...I knew I would not carry on the hurt that I went through as a child and from the moment I knew I was pregnant, I made a list of "I will not"....and it worked, I have never abused or even hurt my child in an abusive way. She is a wonderful adult with her own child and the circle was broken with me...
--How do you feel about the cycle being broken?
--Do you feel that people need professional help and that it is always there, but is dormant until set off?
--Do you think people can really change?
