"The Berg kids were afraid to not praise the Lord. They were terrified to murmer. They were terrified to ask to do something that they wanted to do for fear it would be called being selfish. They were not loved unconditionally. They got loved apportioned out to them when they pleased their father."

Sounds like my desolate childhood. Now I know where the model was.

"I know that Aaron said when we were at Berg's house that he was afraid to be happy because he thought God was always setting him up for the kill. That kind of thinking comes from someone who has suffered a lot of abuse and dissappointment in their life."

I still struggle with that.
