As you continue with your therapy, you may well come to understand not only your Self better, but also your mother. She is stunted, in part as a result of what she lived through as a child, then as a young mother and wife. No excuses for the way she continues to behave, rather, it's an explanation. At this point in her life, she is incapable of doing better; and she may never be able to do better. What's important is how you treat your SELF. Give yourself the dignity, respect and love you were denied. You're starting to do that by going to therapy. So keep it up. Therapy may help you to give your Self the things you needed so much as a child, and still need today. In my own life, I had to let go of the idea of having a loving mother because she was not capable of loving me the way I wanted her to love me. When I came to that realization, it freed me, because I then knew that there was no point in seeking out something that I would never receive. It also taught me that I love started with me. The same goes for you, Cindy. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You are amazing. YOu write the story really really clearly, no ifs ands or buts, but clearly. You are like me in that you remember EVERYTHING...
I am proud of you that you are
"breaking the cycle" by getting help. It does work, it takes time, but it does work to talk about it. Keep talking. Go to therapy as long as you want to, need to feel the need to go.
