Abraham, who accused her now-divorced parents, Debra Danielsen and Michael Abraham, of beating her with a belt as a child, couldn’t help but get emotional while discussing her troubled past. (Both parents have suggested that there’s more to the story than what their daughter claims.)

“It’s so sad,” the reality star, 24, tells show host Dr. Drew Pinsky in the clip. “I don’t really feel like people should have to go through with that.”

“Well, but you’ve been there,” the TV therapist reminds the mom of Sophia, 7, to which she concedes: “That’s part of life.”

“Well, stop it. Stop dismissing it,” Dr. Drew urges Abraham. “It is sad. It’s sad to have been hurt as a child, right? Super sad.” She then nods in agreement, attempting to hold back tears.

Despite her sadness over her upbringing, the MTV personality has since found it in her heart to forgive her mom and dad.

“My family and I have such a different dynamic now,” Abraham revealed last year during an interview on the podcast Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. “We’ve talked through a lot of our abuse. Not everyone’s a perfect parent, but we do learn and we grow from that. I’m not trying to be harsh on my family, because it does make them sad to think back about how they used to be and some of their choices.”

Watch the video above. Part one of the Teen Mom OG reunion airs on MTV on Monday, February 29, at 10 p.m. EST.
