Mother’s Day is a difficult holiday for some. An adult child of divorce reveals the emotional pain experienced on Mother’s Day! Sadly, her mother engaged in behaviors representing PAS.
Parents who use PAS tactics to ‘control’ their child should be forewarned that the plan may backfire when the child becomes an adult.
I was going to pretend that I’m fine today. Then I saw someone share this, (another post) and I couldn’t ignore the feelings anymore.
All I wish today is that I had a mother who wasn’t sick. I don’t regret cutting her out from my life, but I just hate that I don’t have a mom who may well never be stable enough to have a real relationship with. Especially since she’s able to cut off any emotional bond with people, apparently at will. So she may have lost all love for me. I’m just sad I don’t have a mom. Very much so. I thought that not being around today would make me feel good in a way, because it would be like revenge for her, to feel the consequences of what she’s done. But the sadness of not having a mom is greater.
