I have been dealing with an emotionally abusive mother for over 20 years. I dont know how to break free of her, because i feel guilty doing so, but I cannot allow her to continue to cause me pain, She has manipulated me my whole life, abandoned me, disowned me. She refuses to see reality, or acjnowledge the truth of what she has done. I know I need to go on with my life and new family, and let her go. But I miss not having a mother, I miss how close we were when I was young , Once I tured 18 she had no need for me anynmore because i wasnt a young needy child like SHE needed. There are other aspects to this, and she has done horribly cruel manipulative things that have hurt me and haunted me for 20 years now. I need a friend. Someone who can help me to do what I know I need to do, which is to let her go, stop allowing her to cause me pain, and move on and be hapy. I need a friend who is willing to take the time to listen, be attentive,who is caring, supportive.
