Some people here need to realize they are no longer in Straight, in group or on their phases, jesus christ some of you are still stuck at the age of 15 , 16 or whatever and still act as if you are on front row! Get over it already! If you want to make a differance in current programs fine, yours is over with get on with life already. Unfucking believeable. Good post seamus

First off Dr. Fucktard entertains me. 2nd. You all are right. I am not living Straight life today. I posted trying to find people from Straight Inc. in Florida and it almost turned into Bust-Ass Rap. Don't have time for the whining and excuses of why people's lives are fucked up today. You think Straight was the most terrible place.....Go to Somalia for a visit and see what those people went through. I live a decent life today with a great ex-wife and kid. I don't hold Straight accountable for any mistakes I've made once I got out. I hated that place with a passion. If there was one thing I took from that place and I tried to leave everything behind trust me on that one. It was jails, institutions, and death. Didn't stay sober after Straight, but visited the jails, institutions, and ran into someone drunk and almost killed them. Anyway I am sober today. It just took years of investigating.

What would be wrong with holding people accountable?? If a child is raped (even emotionally) and ends up having difficulties later on, is it their fault for being what, weak? Self centered? Selfish? Or maybe they just enjoy pain? (Who knows, maybe they deserved it?)

There aren't a lot of people who weren't there that can truly understand the feeling of being locked up in straight, which is one thing this board provides. Having feelings about it doesnt mean we all have no life  :roll: and that we're all

In our pity
Self centered
Feeling sorry for ourselves

  AS a CHILD, it's not "wrong" to hold someone accountable who has raped you, etc...  as the child GROWS and emotionally works on themselves, blaming OTHERS does NOTHING but place blame, therefore choosing to play the "victim" for life.  
 You CAN'T CONTROL what happens to you.  You CAN DECIDE how to respond and grow, learn, mature and move on.
  Many on these boards have CHOOSEN to BLAME Straight, staff, etc, for ALL their problems today. Playing that VICTIM for life.  Grow up and be an adult.  It's SO freeing, to stop blaming others!

Maybe a lot of people on here have never let themselves BE the victim. Maybe we've spent so much time crucifying ourselves it feels nice to have someone say, you're not that screwed up little druggie asshole they told you you were. You're not a horrible person that deserves to be treated like a dog, or worse. How do you know nobody has a life at ALL and is trying to play the victim, FOR LIFE? I don't think things are really that black and white.

I do understand one thing you may be trying to get at. Why sit around all day feeling bad and not doing anything about it, right? I agree, but I think part of the process of doing something about it is acknowleging that we were wronged...and that they were wrong about us. I doubt that anyone who truly believes that they aren't that screwed up little shit that we were told is going to want to feel bad, is going to want to sit around and be sad. What would they have to feel sad about?

Also, how will we be able to protect ourselves, if we don't respect ourselves and our needs, if we don't realize what kind of treatment is acceptable and what isn't. If it doesn't matter what other people do to us, only how we react, why not just let people treat us however they want. It's only how we react, right? Never blaming others will not only NOT be freeing, it will keep us in chains. The chains of not allowing yourself to be as you truly are, to not have the feelings you have and to not respect yourself as you are. Of course we can't necessarily control other people, but we can see them for what they are and take action accordingly. [ This Message was edited by: JMA on 2005-04-08 17:11 ]

Yes, this is very, very true. And I've decided to respond by trying to get my generation of mothers to stop and think about this bullshit so they'll see it coming when Officer Friendly suggest they turn their kids over to them for "help". I'll move on as soon as I'm done.

How have you decided to respond?

  I've decided to repond by doing something positive to HELP.   I work with new and young parents and encourage bonding with their babies, educating them on child development, informing then on parenting skills, discipline and how to build their children's self esteem.  I encourage education and professional growth, and to be role models for their children.
  I feel this is much more effective than re-hashing my angst teen years, and blaming the program, staff or whatever...
 Thanks for asking.

Good! Maybe some of them will get hooked in and become so well bonded w/ their kids that they'll be gut wise and not buy into that bullshit. For those who don't take your courses, I'm trying to catch a few fly balls that come my way.

Among all of us, I think we can really staunch the flow. Here's hoping!  ::cheers::
