i just want to say that i am here for everyone that feels they had a neglectful or abusive mother as a child, or has one right now. no matter what type of abuse you went or are going through, how mild or severe it was, the circumstances or how big of an impact it has had on you; i support you. if you’re affected then it’s valid.
so whether you see your mother today, whether you ignore the day or ignore their existence completely, i understand. however you cope and feel, i am proud. you are so much braver than you know and you’re worth more than anything that’s said or done to you. if you’re going through it now then you deserve all the love.
happy mother’s day to those of us who nurtured and healed ourselves or are in the process of doing so. love to you all.
