Does pain ever go away with abandonment? My mom physically abused me up until the age of 8 and after that abandoned me for a couple years and since then it has been constant emotional and verbal abuse which still feels like abandonment. I'm not sure how I think I did the right thing by reporting her. Most people say I did and then some people say I didn't. I think it just caused more harm than good. For me I'd rather be physically abused than emotionally and abandoned. I did the hardest thing I have done so far in my life. I wrote my mom a 7 page letter and told her that I was not going to let her treat me that way anymore. And I gave her specific examples. And I told her that if she continues I don't want to have any contact with her. I told her to contact me and if she is verbally abusive the contact will be ended. Does that mean I'm abandoning her? Does anyone have any advice?
