    Neglect

    My mother has a very high-profile, important job, and she likes it. Power probably has a lot to do with that. It consumes practically all of her time, but that's her choice - she's a workaholic, she does her job well, and she'd be like that even with a lesser job. It makes me...

    The Pain Won't Go Away

    As a Christian, it is in my nature to forgive. For the most part, I find it easy to forgive except for one person...My mom. We have a good relationship now but I can't help but feel that good relationship is because of my daughter. My mom has mellowed since becoming a...

    Dear mother,

    I have sat there and wondered why it's so hard for us to get along. I feel we are nothing alike and question how it's possible for you to judge me, and point out all of my bad qualities. It sucks because you're right, I am everything you have called me. I am just like...

    Mom Brings You Into This World But Do We Have To Love Her?

    A mother by definition is the woman that gives birth to you. So Why do we have to love the woman that gave birth to us? I'm not afraid to say I dislike the woman that gave birth to me but I don't love her either. I blame her for not protecting me. She begged me to forgive her...
