    Kit,

    I just need to understand one thing before I can answer your question...why do you say that it was 'God' who punished and was judge, jury and executioner, when you were growing up? I would tend to think that is was the people involved.

    Yeah, you're right. When I was young, my parents would punish me and yell that God hated what i did. God will punish me for this; God is angry at me for this...and so on.

    Naturally, since the only time I heard about God was when I got in trouble, I believed them. kids believe their parents, no matter how crazy it sounds.

    I've tried to change that mental picture of an angry God...sort of like in the 10 Commandments, when Moses broke the commandments. That's my automatic picture of God.

    It's like I know it in my head, that he loves me, but my heart is terrified. How can I forgive myself, if I can't trust God to forgive me? No amount of talking to myself about how God is Father Knows Best - only better - it just wont go that way.

    One time, I just remembered, I talked back to my mom. I think I was 6 or so. Anyway, I got in trouble for several things. 1. I talked back. 2. I said the word hell, as in hell no. 3. I scowled at my mom - aka disrespected her (my dad beat me for that, couldn't sit down for a week, had a mark on my face, didnt go to school a few days). The talking back... I got my mouth washed out with soap - and pine sol - because "God demanded restitution". I knew that word way before then. I was restricted from eating with the family for what seemed like a month - not exactly sure how long actually - because I wasn't worthy.

    My parents were well-to-do and popular. My dad was very popular in social circles.

    Look, I get it. They messed up. But why did a little kid have to suffer in his name like that? ok, getting carried away. Sorry.

    Better go get that melatonin.

    I'm sorry you had such a rough childhood, Kit.

    I've been thinking:

    Iíve decided that the people in my life deserve better than this. I deserve better than this. We all deserve better than this. So as hard as it is to let go of my old patterns and beliefs, Iím doing it. I donít need beer or a salty pillow. I need a great life thatís worth living. I need to be able to make a difference in the world. And I need to show my children just how amazing they can be by being amazing myself.

    I'll wait for Pastor to reply before I submit my answer.

    How did the melatonin work for you?
