Mother unknowingly emotionally abuses daughter, daughter looks to a man for guidance, financial help, and escape (thanks to Disney), moves in with the man, but accidentally picks someone unknowingly equally as disordered as mom not recognizing it as dysfunction and now there is physical abuse, repeats the cycle mom said see it proves you were worthless all along and now you deserve this and get to live how I lived. If she gets pregnant, without insight into the dynamic, she accidentally emotionally abuses daughter not realizing it is abusive and the cycle repeats, she is doomed to repeat it. This can happen to sons as well but more often they try to stop abusive dad from beating mom and end up injured themselves.
So boy gets taken from abusive home, goes into America's foster care system which is rampant with abuse. Boy looks to a group of other boys to escape to and afford to live ( Peter Pan Lost Boys) boy finds a man as equally messed up as dad not recognizing his symptoms as so bad (especially since foster care was even scarier and worse)...the man is in a gang, they teach him how not to take shit, how to make money, and give him the sense of acceptance he was missing. But soon he is in over his head they begin to treat him just like dad did and tell him he must deserve it. Next, he meets a girl she makes him feel good for the first time in a long time. She gets pregnant. But there is lots of stress and now they cant seem to get along. He gets in trouble with the law trying to please his boys and make money to pay back or support them and now his girl. She tells him he is worthless. He teaches his son tough love. He starts to hit her not really recognizing it as abuse. And the cycle repeats all over again.
So when will America incorporate these lessons into our education system. When will we teach our kids how to recognize love when they live and are raised with something called love but is so very not it? What will we do to heal and teach them the lessons they most need to know about? Love is all you need. But first you need to know what real unconditional love is and feel worthy to receive it.
Love is what we need. And this lesson most urgently needs to be incorporated into our education system before it repeats again.
