Your mother DID abandon you...
by: Darlene Barriere - webmaster

Whatever "mistake" your mother made, she should never have taken it out on you, her precious little girl. You deserved for her to be loving and nurturing and supportive, Faye. You deserved for her to be there for you. You deserved to be raised by her. You DID NOT deserve to be degraded and humiliated by her. She should be ashamed for the demeaning way in which she has spoken to you. Her shameful words had nothing to do with you, Faye; they had everything to do with your mother. She's the one with the problem. There is NOTHING wrong with you. Don't make the mistake of seeing yourself through your mother's eyes. You are a bright and special young woman. The fact that your mother doesn't see that only makes her blind.

As for your grandmother and extended family, they should never have mocked and verbally assaulted you. Under the circumstances, they had the same duty to love and nurture you that your mother did. Everyone failed you on an emotional level.

I suspect that your family did not tell you about your mother's family because they believed at your young age you couldn't handle the horrible, betraying truth. And I suspect that your grandmother kept such a tight reign on you because she thought by doing so, you wouldn't stray, by doing so you wouldn't make a mistake that you might later regret. In her own misguided way, I believe she was trying to protect you.

Faye, don't allow the emotional abuse and betrayal and abandonment to take control of your life. Stay in college. Get your education. Learn about yourself. Help and heal yourself. Then go into the world a healthy and productive adult. Through your healing and recovery, you can then help others in your chosen field.
