Well, I fought back by not calling. They havenít called me either. Now I am really estranged from my family.

With all I read about toxic people, everything says to go no contact. So thatís what happened. They will say I am the toxic person. Fine.

My emotions are so raw.

I don't necessarily feel like I need to put the abuser in her place, but I do wish that someone, or a higher power would. This is not just for me, but for others as well. I don't want her to create more victims. I feel bad for her next victims.

But I think saying your piece would just feed your abuser's ego. An abuser tends to get somewhat of a sick/ sadistic satisfaction from seeing that his or her abuse had an effect on you. Have you heard of a saying that someone who commits an arson always shows up at the fire scene? I think an abuser could have the same kind of mentality in that he or she wants to see the effect of what he or she did to you. Just focus on being happy and successful for yourself. This will prove that the abuser's attempt to ruin your life was a complete failure.

I was foolishly thinking the same people who caused the trauma were going to be sympathetic to it now!

Abusers always turn it around on you and blame you for the abuse when it's them. So not fair. They suck. I am sorry you are estranged from your family, but if they are abusive then it's for the best. Yes, no contact is best.
