Read an Excerpt
Going all the way back to my early school years, I repeatedly had the rug pulled out from under me. That feeling of being had stayed with me and affected my ability to ever fully trust anyone.
In high school, I would meet new people. When they tried to get close to me, I would invite them to come to my house on the weekend. I was happy, thinking I was making a new friend. Then I would find out that the only reason they wanted to come over was because they wanted to be around my brother Keith and his friends. It was all about the guys.
I would realize, Oh, I am being had here.
I often had the feeling of being on uncertain ground when it came to matters involving my oldest brother, Wes, as well. He would say one thing and do something else. It made it hard for me to trust him.
One incident in particular stayed with me. All of us kids attended Catholic school. For reasons I never understood, Dad always dropped my brothers off at their all-boys high school first, and then took my older sister and me to our all-girls high school. (My younger sister went to public grammar school and took the bus.)
This habit of Dad’s made me late for school every morning. I never understood why he didn’t take us girls to school first, since our school was only a mile from the house. But I knew there was no point in questioning him. Once he got his mind set on doing something a certain way, there was no changing it. The nuns didn’t know that the reason I was late for school in the mornings was because of my father’s drop-off routine. Even if they had known, I don’t think they would have cared. As far as they were concerned, I was late, and that was inexcusable. It was as simple as that.
