How Do I Forqive My Mom Who Abandoned Me?

when i was one and a half, my mother abandoned me. she was always gone and doing drugs.... and choosing boys over us. she will be home for like an hour and then she will leave and wont return for days. so my second mom (a pastor), who i call mom, raised me in church and taught me everything about god and the riqht and wronq. then i started to see my mom a lil more but never called her mom, i always called her by her first name. and i never forqave her for leavinq me all alone in the world. but my second mom think its time for me to forgive her but i dont want to but then i do....what should i do?

Is your mom still doing drugs? Does she try and get in touch with you? Does she want a relationship? <br />
You can forgive her for your own personal spiritual well being. It doesn't mean you have to have a relationship with her.<br />
I don't blame you for not wanting to forgive her. Luv Lucy
