We Begin - Again

It is time once more to resume The Man Tales. I have been thinking about this quite a bit lately and think that the best way to do this is to re-post some of the more 'intense' moments that I wrote about previously for people who do not know my story.

As you can see at the top of my blog I have written the words - 'When I was growing up my parents told me that they beat me because they loved me. This is a true story about a life of abuse both physical and mental – and my long journey to find ‘true love’.'

I am indeed in the process of writing 'The Wailings'. It has been a long time in the writing as life and mental health has often got in the way and I am not very good at delegating my time and focus on this. In fact I have found myself stuck so many times at the most crucial of points because I need to find the proper words to convey just how horrible life was at that exact moment.

I have scheduled the beginning of the story to start tomorrow. My posts have started with excerpts from The Wailings and then switched to my own voice as I have continued on with the story past what I have been able to write. I have received comments that people prefer to hear the story in my own voice but it was easier for me to include the excerpts and go from there.

Please note that I chose to write The Wailings as a fiction instead of an autobiography. I did so because I fear being found by The Beater and being prosecuted for revealing the truth. I will not be re-posting every single one as I see there are over a hundred posts under the label 'truth'. If you wish to read more of the story you will be able to find them by clicking on 'truth' in my sidebar and going back to the oldest and working your way forward. If you just want the high(low)lights - stay tuned right here and don't change that dial.

Takes a lot of courage to tell the truth and the person I think it changes the most is the teller. Many, many blessings to you.

I agree with the above... good luck to you, and may it bring healing.

I know that what you are doing is hard but in the telling comes the healing.

I'm looking forward to reading the story, but I'm already mad. Good grief. The bad behavior that people get away with.

Has the statute of limitations run out? I say, expose the brute. OK, sorry, I'll go back to being a forgiving person now.

You are such a strong woman to do this and I am anxious to start reading your next postings. Sharing the truth is the way to healing. God Bless you through your healing. Jeanne

Telling is cathartic. *hugs*

I won't be changing that dial Aims. x

I am staying tuned. God bless aims. You know what they say "truth hurts" and hopefully through your hurting will come the healing.

Happy Thanksgiving, dear Aims and family .. xox

I admire you Aims. You take your time, steel yourself, tell, exhaust yourself but somehow it aids the recovery, then you recouperate and start again.
Thank you for sharing this. May it do its job and give some one, somewhere, a voice.

I remember this from the first time aims. What makes some men think they can rule by violence? Hideous. I do hope you found the writing and the telling healing in some way. xxx
