I put my mother on a pedestal, this is my safest place, laying down on her watching Netflix is one of my favorite things, i laughed like i didn't have a care in the world, like the old me. This woman loves me more than life itself and whatever darkness might cloud my head, whatever bad thoughts may come this is my light, mom don't want to live in a world without me in it... and when the bad days come i hope i remember these words

My mom is my everything too. She knows what an amazingly, strong person you are. You got this
Thank you for posting this Danielle. It’s amazing how beautiful and valuable our mom are.
Once I reached 24, I completely forgave and accepted my mom for the past, present and who she is. I couldn’t run away from the fact that I was incredibly flawed. All humans are flawed. But you don’t internalize it until you realize how lost everyone is. It’s horrible and beautiful to come to realizations that the people you grew up thinking had it all figured out we’re just trying to soothe the child inside them.
I had to focus internally. Realize that when I have children I will hurt them. Unintentionally of course. I know my parents did the best with what they had.
I love my mom more than anything in the world. But grieving who I thought my parents were is one of the hardest things I had to deal with as a young adult. But that’s apart of growth and connection with family and loved ones.
Thank you for posting this. Fascinating subject and I am happy to hear you and your mom are connecting.
Hey, O40. Nice to see you here!
That was lovely, my friend. You're definitely one up on me there. I never got along with my mom and my therapist said she was a cause of much trauma in my life. Sue helps a lot but, still the restless darkness overwhelm me sometimes. What then? Perhaps I'm overstating it or worrying too much. Who knows. But, I'm sure glad you have a safe haven, D!
I can definitely relate to having a parent who's traumatic to a child, i had an abusive father. I know how hard it is, im glad you have sue, we need a little light someone to light our way in the darkness
My mom died about 18 months ago. Since that happened, I don’t cope well with anything.
I'm sorry for your loss.....and it's a devastating blow to you.....I hope you have some support to help you .....
I am so very happy for you that you have your mother to support you and love you unconditionally. You would think that would make us okay and right with the world. But that's the insidiousness of this disease....you have a sadness for no reason other than a chemical deficiency in your brain.....and nothing can fix that....so hold onto what you do have and be grateful that you at least have that much....most people have no one because no one can understand this disease like another who suffers with it. And if you have someone who can accept you for who we are.....that's a very rare gift.
You made me break down in tears...in a good way..I was so blessed for 30 years with a loving mother...thank you faux..nailed it once again..no surprise at all! To the moon and back!!!
Yes, remember her. I have a friend who is like a mother to me, and I have thought of the effect my not being in the world would have on her, when feeling very low. It's been a good incentive to stay alive and try to be happy.
Definitely, get strength from that, that's what's been keeping me together
you will always be your mummies baby no matter what age you are and whatever you go through she goes through as well.sounds like you have a special mum and she has a special daughter forever and a day.
