My Own Story is Triggered
I wrote in my Prologue to “In Memoriam: Michael Jackson…” that Michael “had lived his life with the un-self-conscious boldness and absolute commitment to his unique, real self — more so even than most primalers are able to yet — and for that he had been singled out, hounded, ridiculed, and laughed at; and these things no doubt diminished his life and then took it.”
The whole story had got me to thinking but that quote captures the crux of it. I became reflective then, and I still am, as I recall how I’d also experienced persecution for being different – and for me, like Michael, it had to do with being more sensitive or more talented or intelligent, or all three, than males are “supposed” to be.
Certainly those were the reasons that my father hated me, especially growing up. He, ignorant and struggling; me, bright and athletic without trying or even wanting to be, and having everything come easy for me. Whereas for him, he had to wear himself out struggling, desperately trying to prove to his father — dead, of course, one of those “ghostly others,” I’ve been mentioning — that he in fact COULD take care of himself…and a wife, and six children.
