Damaged Goods

I think when people use this particular phrase to describe people, it means that something happened in the early years which was not supposed to happen. Something dark, something that was not right, but at that particular point in time, nothing or nobody was there to prevent it.

I know quite of few people like that… including myself. It’s really hard to live and knowingly, carrying a dark memory that haunts us wherever we go. In some way, I think one’s own self worth is greatly affected by it. I always ask myself - “Oh if that event did not happen during my childhood, I would be so happy, so and so, and such and such.”

There’s really no escaping about this self condemning voice.

All I can say is, just hang in there my friend… and yes, I believe you… You really did not know what you were doing, and it’s not your fault.
