Question: Dear Luise: I have two children and they hate me. I was a bad mother and they will not forgive me. I ve tried so hard to make things work and i ask god to help us find our way back as a family. Right now i just want to let go and move on. Help if you can. My story is the same as other moms ive read about. V.
Answer: Dear V.: Sometimes being a bad mother is the best we can do and often it’s a whole lot better than no mother. Often people can forgive but have a hard time forgetting. You can’t change any of that. And I agree with you, it’s time to let go and get on with your life.
Please come over to my Web-forum at www.WiseWomenUnite.com I started it several years ago for those of us who have issues with our adult children or extended families. A supportive community can make all the difference. Sharing and caring…listening and understanding…often bring healing even when the circumstances stay the same. Blessings, Luise
