when will I get to stop being worried

Posted by Carollaine , 26 April 2013 · 36 views

there is a long history of abuse in my family. My mother, my sister's, and myself. None of these effect me like the suffering of my daughter. She says her childhood stopped at 12 when she had flashbacks. I wanted so badly to stop the abuse with my generation.
my daughter and I have talked for hours about what she has gone through. She is one of the strongest people I know, its just that it only takes one small incident to take us back there. when she goes, I go with her, we are so close and I can feel her pain. I just want her to relax and embrass her life. I worry about her so much because she can be good for a while and then right back to her 6 year old self.
When can I stop worrying and trust that she has this, I feel like I have failed her once and I dont ever want that to happen again. When will I know that she is ready to deal with her issues with her friends and other people, I am so protective. I dont want her to feel held captive, but I never want anyone to hurt her the way so many women in our family have suffered.
