These children fight so hard for a safe place to land they often seek love as defined for them by their childhood experience and fall easily into abusive relationships. A young woman running hard to outdistance a past that’s taught her she dares not trust requires significant healing to become a compassionate and loving adult. A child who suffers abuse and neglect may strive endlessly for acceptance resulting in over-achievement with no resulting sense of adequacy, accomplishment or self-respect. Survivors of abuse sometimes make an enormous contribution in an attempt to create a place for themselves in the world. A STORY LIKE TRUTH is based on a true-life story. It attempts to give hope and a sense of purpose to those who have been beaten down, rejected and abandoned by those from whom they sought love, safety and respect. A childhood of abuse and rejection can, and often does, lead to depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, crime and even suicide. A STORY LIKE TRUTH depicts a life of struggle toward healing and the ultimate outcome of love, kindness and generosity through rescue.
