Invisible children are many, across all the socioeconomic classes they live in. In our society we often look for someone to blame…mostly when it comes to problem children. Yet, sometimes there is no one to blame…. Often, it is just life and how people are able, or not able, to deal with what is put in front of them.
Many times we do not understand why we do things, our reactions to various situations, but we go on doing it. For many, we go on doing it over and over, even while regretting it deeply.
Someone once said the definition of "stupidity" is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. "Invisible children" do not EXPECT a different result, but through all the sadness, despair, anger and hurt, they HOPE for a different result. Yet, they seem powerless to stop this negative behavior.
Learning the circumstances and events that made you an "invisible child", and acceptance of that knowledge is the first step in healing your life.
The Truth and the Acceptance-of-that-Truth can truly set you free.

I go by Lea and I am one of the many "invisible children" (my own term) out there. I realized the limitations that growing up as an "invisible child" placed on my development and how much of my life-decisions and the direction my life took have been a direct reaction to an unknown and unacknowledged reality, that - from its hiding - changed what I could have accomplished, my relationships, and how I felt about myself.
