Man Gives Explanation As To Why Children From Abusive Families Analyze Everything, And It's Both Heartbreaking And Beautiful

by Stephanie

It goes without saying that our families are one of the most influential factors in shaping our emotions and, ultimately, our personalities. Our parents do the best job they know how to, but depending on their own upbringing, their abilities will naturally vary.

Sadly, some children are not as lucky as others. Some are left to grow-up in unwanted and even abusive household situations.

Recently, gender-queer writer, Dawson shared his story reflecting on how growing up with mentally unstable parents can lead to children becoming adults who over analyze. “I’ve been writing since I was old enough to spell, it is at the core of who I am as a person," Dawson said.

"I always joke that I write my tangled experiences and feelings into straight line, which is why I write so much about my personal experiences from abusive relationships. It’s self-reflection and catharsis and storytelling and poetry and sharing."

"The sharing is important to me," the writer continued. "Sometimes people write to tell me how much something I wrote impacted them or clarified something for them and that’s one of my biggest goals in my writing, for people to know they aren’t alone."

"Lonely as life can be, we’re out here. We’re surviving, and sometimes that’s all you have to do."

"Stand up and say, “I survived, you can too.” That’s the best I have to offer, I think,” Dawson explained.
