lots of love this mother’s day for everyone who has a complex relationship with their mom, everyone who has ceased communication with their mom for reasons of self-preservation, and every person whose mom is deceased
I really appreciate this sentiment. After spending the majority of my time with the psychologist on Friday talking about the unhealthy relationship with my mom, I found Mother’s Day this year to be rather difficult.
“everyone who has ceased communication with their mom for reasons of self-preservation”
It’s hard to explain to people why I don’t talk to my mother. I tend to get a lot of guilt trips and warnings that I’ll regret it later in life. It’s not like she’s done anything specifically overtly abusive (not that I can remember anyhow) but I know that my mental health is better when I don’t have to lie to her and pretend to be something I’m not. As hard as it is to end abusive relationships with lovers, I think it may be harder to end ones with family. So thank you for this, random tumblr poster.
