My Mother Did This

My parents divorced when I was only 3 years old, and my mother had a continuous stream of boyfriends throughout my childhood. Often she put their needs and wants before the needs and wants of my brother and I, and we paid for it constantly while growing up. I haven't quite forgiven her for this, but I am trying really hard to do just that.

I believe that when you have children, your job is to care for them the best you can and put them absolutely first in your life. No excuses. Any boyfriend/girlfriend who doesn't agree is not worthy of dating, in my opinion.

I am sorry to hear that your mother wasnt there for you Spirit. People are often lousy parents because their needs werent met when they were children, its often a vicious circle. But no matter what, children have to come first!
