My Step-mother. And Maybe My Mother A Little.My mother should have put more thought into who I would go to when she died. Had she done so, she would have found out that the people she doomed me to in her will would be terrible "parents"
My step-mother I do hate although I don't think I allow her to affect my life anymore. I am indifferent really.
It took me a long time, but I realize that everything she said to me, that I would never amount to anything, that I was a failure, that I was a ****, that I was fat, she was saying about herself, because none of it was true about me. A kid doesn't understand mental illness, so they believe these things, but thankfully now I know this, and know none of it was true.
To all of you who have experienced the same thing, realize this. It's NOT about you. It's about THEM. What they are saying to you, they are hating in themselves.
