I’m glad you’re on the other side of this. Freedom is a perfect description. It goes without saying that you have done the right thing to shield your child from this toxic waste land you walked out of. But I’ll say it anyway. It’s good your husband doesn’t get it. He did not have the exposure to that level of dysfunction in his world. Again — well done freeing yourself from the cycle. May you feel all the love YOU deserve this Mother’s Day from the family you built. May it heal you from the abyss of neglect and abuse of your childhood. And may you find the peace you so richly deserve. ❤️
