It's Been Awhile Since I Felt Rejected


The layers of complex issues between my mother and me have caused a permanent rift that will probably always exist unless we go to counseling. But since we live states away it will probably never happen.

I can learn to forgive, accept, and coexist. But I am terrified that I will pass along the disfunction I suffered to my child.

It feels like I'm coming to yet another crisis of self. Not just who I am but who I am to her and who do I need to be to ensure we don't have these issues in the future? How do I figure out what she needs and adapt? I would do literally anything to make her like me. Is that bad?

Oh Hannah! Similar thing with my mom and I. I can't say how to make it better with our next generation, but to love them, pray for them, and just do right. That's my plan anyway.

You and your mom sound like me and my mom, except she lives 20 minutes from me. I'm terrified that Jared will feel about me the same way I feel about my mom. The only thing I can do is not make the same mistakes she did. That's what I'm telling myself anyway!
