I ended my relationship with my mother. It was a rough ending that needed to happen. I have a lot of issues in my adult life that I feel were caused by her.
These are the stories of my childhood. They aren't in any particular order. I have a lot of triggers that bring back memories so I'm sharing them as they occur.
My plea to parents is to give your children space, respect, fairness, and autonomy. Don't trick yourself into thinking "my kid is going to be fine." It's very possible they might be scarred.
disclaimer: This is how I remember and perceive events in my life. I can't make up my memories though it is possible that I remember them different than she or another witness might.
