Question: Dear Luise: My mom left and divorced my dad 10 years ago. My dad whom raised all three sisters and myself, in which I am now 22. My mom whom tries to come in and out, but knows nothing about me, and i dont feel genuinely loves me. I feel this has not bothered me as much until the past month, I am feeling very rejected and confused. I feel even though I may not notice it, it impacts my daily relationships, whether it be with commitment or my everyday friendships?
Answer: Dear M.: It seems to me that if all of this is coming up for you now, it may be time for some serious counseling. That’s a lot of trauma over a long period of time and you might feel much better if you could work through it and let go of as much of it as possible. Blessings, Luise
