I'm in a real struggle now with several things in my life. My dad has always been distant and emotionally unavailable. My mom is toxic. She had so many problems and I've just come to terms with the fact that she has been emotionally, verbally, and even physically (hate to say it) abusive to me growing up. I live on the other side of the country now. My dad came to visit me last week because he is concerned about me for several valid reasons. He told me to think about moving back to Florida near them so they can be a support to me (or at least him). I just know how life back there is. It's stressful. I've learned to slowly move on from my mom and I'm scared that seeing her might set me back up. But then again, it could be a good thing for me because I don't want to avoid her forever. I'm all alone here in Canada and really don't have a life here. The only thing I would be missing is my amazing therapist. Any advice???
