His statement reads further;

I am what I am now because of these experiences.

I won’t forget what I went through at Foursquare Gospel Church in Mushin. The shame, the horror, the fake deliverance and look at me now….”

At a very young age, these people took away from me, my innocence, my peace of mind, my self worth and rendered me an angry, depressed, lonely and confused teenager and everyone wonders why I despise religion with everything in my soul.

The latter part of his statement reads;

And sometimes people don’t understand why I find it really really hard, deep in my soul to forgive my mother or my siblings.

The scar I am left with is forever visible….

I might come across strong, but every time I see the scar, I fall back into deep depression and I am talking about things that happened to me over 20yrs ago.

“And before you are get it twisted, I love my mum….

I so very much love that woman, she is a warrior and a strong woman, and those are the qualities I took from her, but I can’t deny the pain she caused me in the name of trying to cure me instead of loving me”.
