Browsing random crap in journals and I came across a discussions about abuse/punishment as a kid and what's justified or out of line...

People really do think they're more abused than they are. The phrase "I think I've blocked out my childhood" pops up way too many times. *Way* too many times. Maybe the reason you don't remember being abused is because it didn't happen?
Maybe?
Can we open that as a possibility instead of just jumping to the conclusion that you were HORRIBLY abused and have therefore blocked all memory of it?

The desire to be a victim... where does that come from? Is it the national focus on it? Is it Oprah? Where did this culture of entitlement and victimization come from? Why do so many people go out of their way to be broken?
