I just read Alice Miller's "The Body Never Lies," which addresses the bind we are in when our parents are our abusers. If focuses a lot on the Fourth Commandment--loving thy father and mother--which is ingrained in us (not just religiously, but by society as well), and how caught we are between believing we have to love them and hating them for the way they treated us. It was a great book, really tough for me, but it also made it clear to me that our parents don't deserve our love just because they are our parents.
take care,
antigua
