When and why my relationship with my mom came to an end
I do not have a relationship with my mom. It’s been over two years sine we last communicated, and those words are still difficult to write. Her last voicemail was so unhinged – but for the first time, I put down the phone and just thought “wow, I feel sad for her” and asked my sister to wish her well for me.
While these stories are painful to share, it feels important to share them. This is for those of you who have dealt with an abusive or narcissistic parent. It is time in my healing journey to talk more about the slow and painful unraveling of one of the most important relationships a person can have.
Trigger warning: this post touches on suicide and abuse.
