The message of my parents was, “We don’t approve of who you are. You should change to fit in with the family and avoid embarrassing us or yourself.” Those views reflect their own shame and sense of worthlessness. It didn’t have anything to do with me. Just because I don’t fit in with an abusive system doesn’t make me unworthy. — Christina Enevoldsen, The Rescued Soul: A Writing Journey for the Healing of Incest and Family Betrayal
