    My mom died of liver failure

    when I was 16. I still struggle with accepting and forgiving. I miss her but it's also a relief because she was miserable.

    I lost her when i was 7,

    that was 8 years ago. It really doesn't seem like it's been that long since i heard her voice or since i was safely wrapped in her arms. I lost her to drugs. I honestly still don't understand how any mother could choose drugs and her life over her children. Despite her bad...

    I lost my mother when I was just one,

    and yesterday I found a video of my grandmother's 60th birthday party. It was the first time I ever heard her voice and I don't even know how to feel, it doesn't feel real, I still feels so fake to me, it doesn't feel like her, and I have absolutely no idea who she even is.
