Thank god, my
m-other & f-ather
hadn’t discovered
that paddle
with all
the attached pins
& needles & used
a leather belt instead.

That belt hurt my pride, my ass and destroyed any trust I had with my parents. Without trust there is no relationship. To this day I struggle with trust. Something I didn’t experience as a child. The punishment never seemed to match the “offense”.

What did punishment do to you long term?
