“Anger and torment was surrounding my life” – A YPG story

By YPG

unnamed-2PRESS RELEASE – I used to be tormented by nightmares from the age of thirteen, once I go to sleep I didn’t have peace because the bad dreams were there tormenting me once again.

The dreams were getting worse each day. I used to dream with killing, death and all kinds of things that were making me scared.

In my house I used to see shadows, hear noises like someone was knocking on my window glass and I never allowed my mother turn off the light in my room because I was afraid of darkness.

Because of all this torment in my life and my sleep I ended up having an anger that makes me behave badly. I tried to explain to everyone what was going on with me but nobody could understand what I was facing, they were thinking that I was rude and disobedient but I knew I was doing all that because I was tormented, confused and lost within myself.

I raised my hands against my mother once, I used to be disrespectful to her and shout at her, all because I thought she loved my brother and my sister more than me. My life was a living hell and I never liked the way I was behaving.

I never lacked for food or clothing, my mother always tried her best to provide us the best but I didn’t care, I wanted to do my own thing. At school I used to be disrespectful with my teachers and always walked with bad company, my life was going nowhere.

I heard about the YPG (Youth Power Group) and I decided to come and see what it was about and that day was the best one in my life. They talked to me, heard my problems and never laughed at my problems. Today I am free from nightmares, anger and what was bothering me. I have peace within myself, I am doing well at school and I love my mother. – Bethold Clavier
