A Little of This, and a Little of That...

Yeah, both of them.

I suppose if Frankenstein could take all the bad out of each, and splice them together into some form of 'supermother' leaving only their good qualities, then I guess that wouldn't be so bad. :)

come here girl~hugs~


I suppose I find support and nourishment from those people that do love and/or care about me. I have a range of understanding friends that are there to offer an ear, hand shoulder if I need it.<br />
And I suppose a nourishing thing that I can do for myself is to let go of the past as much as I can, while rebuilding my self-love.<br />
I think reprogramming my brain to believe the good, strong, bright things about myself is a task, yet much more preferable than carrying on old worn out messages I've received, that have always done harm to me and the way I've seen myself, and lived my life. I don't care what they think of me anymore.<br />
Letting go of those damaging relationships has helped me, as sad as it may seem.

Hmmm. coping... <br />
Well, one of the best things I've done to cope is to not interact with them anymore.<br />
But it took a long time to learn to keep distance, and that it was necessary. As for when I was with them, I retreated within I suppose.<br />
<br />
and hugs to you, msp. :)

I'm with ya sister... My grandmother was my mother figure and after she passed I just grew up fast. :)<br />
<br />

Yes!!<br />
Mine were not in the least empathetic at all.<br />
It really would have helped.

My experience is that parents can suck big time.

Hmmm... I suppose i have had to in many ways, yes...<br />
But I still feel like I missed out on a certain amount of it.

They did provide physical things, but weren't really there for me in other ways.

Meh... I don't find it sad really.<br />
Some people just don't get along.<br />
And sometimes it's easier to just not know them if they are cruel or un-understanding and stuff...

That is so sad :(<br />

I speak to neither anymore...<br />
The real mom only briefly around x-mas or the occasional birthday.<br />
I have no need to interact with the other...

I guess I was lucky in the lottery of life. My mother is great and I love her to pieces.
