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.

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.

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.

Letting go of those damaging relationships has helped me, as sad as it may seem.

Hmmm. coping...

Well, one of the best things I've done to cope is to not interact with them anymore.

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.

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. :)



Mine were not in the least empathetic at all.

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...

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.

Some people just don't get along.

And sometimes it's easier to just not know them if they are cruel or un-understanding and stuff...

That is so sad :(


I speak to neither anymore...

The real mom only briefly around x-mas or the occasional birthday.

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.
