agree to meet her.....IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. By that, I mean:
Get one or two Others "you KNOW fairly well"; to Accompany you to Meet "her" at a Restaurant. THEN you're Not alone; with a stranger You Don't Know. YOU can Then up and leave..... at Any Time IF you feel it Necessary. On the OTHER side, IF she IS nice and decent, the Company WITH you "will be Helpful"; in steering you Towards Understanding AND Compassion.
Doesn't everyone deserve a second chance? Ulitmately you might gain more than you lose. Good Luck xx
I presume your talking about giving your Mum a chance (a second chance?). Well you might gain a friend or even better the mother you lost who knows unless you try. Just a suggestion. :-)
I met my birth mom many years ago as a grown up. I've ditched her, or she's ditched me, for about two years now. I'm preparing for this last chapter of my life. I don't know why, but I'm no longer attached to even her, when she first taught me about unconditional love. Suddenly, I don't need much of anyone anymore.
no, it was great meeting her, spending time with her. But somehow in the gist of every day life, I no longer needed a parent figure anymore. And she has curve of spine, which I inherited, which has led to so many other health problems that the doctors speculate my time here will be cut short by as much as 10-15 years. The excruitating pain I go through, and the lack of any health insurance or treatment which would help, just makes living sometimes a very painful thing. I'm not ever going to get the help I need; I also have ten bones not in place in my head, which could lead to their own set of problems. I'm here now, but I won't be here for the long term.
you're welcome. best wishes to you, too.
Not sure. It all depends on the circumstances.
