Never found anything more relatable. Isn’t it exhausting as well when people are constantly telling you “well, they’re still your parent so you should tolerate their behavior and put up with it.”
I made this story unlisted, for obvious reasons, heh. https://link.medium.com/qmXS8nOdF7
I too get sick of Mother’s Day posts…seems like they last the entire damn month of May. Thanks for sharing this, sometimes I feel like others don’t quite understand what it feels like to have someone tear you down on a regular basis. No matter what you do nothing ever satisfies them and you’re always inadequate in some way or another.
I went no contact and have been happier than ever, I’m glad that you’ve found your happiness too.
