Your mother chose this man and the lifestyle he brought to her over you, her precious daughter. She betrayed and abandoned you, and sent you away, leaving you with the message that you weren't good enough, that you were the problem, plus a host of other terrible, but untrue messages. When you learned of this man's death and the way he has been hailed, you likely felt invalidated, that the truth will never be known and even if it were told to a wide audience, no would believe it because of his status. But YOU know the truth, Anonymous. You know what he did. And just for the record, you did nothing wrong! You say you want to ask for forgiveness, but the only thing you need to forgive your Self for is the way you've mistreated your Self all these years by not getting the help you need. There will be plenty of people who will say you don't have anything to forgive your Self for...I'm one of the people who believe that what we do to our Selves over the course of years to avoid getting help is extremely damaging. So when it comes to forgiveness for your Self, that's where to go. Nowhere else. You were the child, he and the landlord were the adults. They had all the power, and they both misused that power. You told the truth, and were betrayed for that truth. I think you were amazingly courageous! Everything is on them, Anonymous. You have no shame to bear here; THEY do. Do what you know is right for your Self: seek out professional help, for your sake and for the sake of your own children; they deserve to have a mother who is totally Present and healthy for them. And you deserve some peace. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
