    Understanding Cycles of Abuse

    Alice Miller is a true trailblazer. Although her other books, such as Thou Shalt Not Be Aware and For Your Own Good, may be more well-known, The Truth Will Set You Free: Overcoming Emotional Blindness and Finding Your True Adult Self, provides an accessible and easily understood entry into her penetrating and potentially liberating ideas. In my opinion, For Your Own Good and Thou Shalt Not Be Aware are excellent books and deserve to be read. However, these books do require more time to read and understand. The Truth Will Set You Free is a relatively quick read that will whet your appetite for sharing more time with this insightful person. Dr. Miller also has a website that contains many of her articles, as well as a forum and reader mail pages. As for me, her books have illuminated how family traumas and abuse are cycled through the generations, often despite the best intentions of more than one generation. Time spent considering and absorbing Dr. Miller's ideas can provide a person seeking help understanding these kinds of painful issues with deeper, more humane, and, ultimately, more practical and useful ways of thinking about complex problems that often seem incomprehensible.

    Chaia

    "Um, good try," she stutters. "Are you okay?" She meows, licking the water from Wick's pelt.

    Meows

    Featherstripe pads to the side with the cacti and slices one of them open. She collects the water from inside with the moss and takes some of the flowers from the cacti. Then she pads to the brambles on the border and disappears.

    Wick

    I copy Chaia, only I perch on the very edge of the rock. It lurches sickeningly, and the water laps hungrily below me. I jump in surprise, sending the rock tumbling into the river. I fall after it and disappear beneath the depths with a splash. The darkness swirls around me, oddly mesmerizing. I watch, my yellow eyes glowing in the shadowy water. A sharp chill snaps me into reality, and I kick out with my long legs. I'm built for running, not strength, so fighting the current is tough. I break the surface and scramble onto the shore, coughing up water. My fur hangs, sopping, from my body. I'm stick-thin, but my thick fur gives me a more... muscular appearance. I shake out my pelt, hoping to hide my scrawniness. I'm not so lucky. I turn to Chaia, grinning wildly.
