Once we get to freely express ourselves, we do not feel repressed. I am so sorry for what happened to you as a child, being forced to the floor, the crazy things (yes, crazy) that adults did to you! Anyone would say, "What the heck is going on here?" and children do not have the power, or the means to escape all of the time.Heh, it's funny that to me it's "normal" and when someone is having normal life, to me it's "weird". Normality is a weird concept. Anyway, my parents often used Bible to try to make me do what they say.
(New International Version)
Exodus 20:12; "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you."
Ephesians 6:1; "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right."
And completely forgot Ephesians 6:4; "Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."
And no, I am not believing this is from God, because I don't believe he exists to begin with. Just trying to say that their methods were fucked up and all this power was given to them by the Governing Body, who says that God has appointed them.
Now years later, my mom is very sorry for all, but too bad that damage is done. My step dad also included me and his son as the only persons in his will. I am guessing he is feeling bad for the things he has done and is trying to say he's sorry.
