Well it was all going so well and then this morning I had a huge and I mean huge argument with my mother. I told her a lot of home truths that I had been bottling up for a while about how she treated me and others. Her reponse was that if that is how I feel then that is up to me, but that she is in no way reponsible for how I feel.
Huh? I won't go into detail and bore you with the whole thing, but I said to her how hurt I was by things she had done and gave examples and she was not interested in acknowledging any of it.
I was very angry, hurt and tearful, then I realised today has been quite good really. I got alot off my chest, in doing so I realised it changes nothing as empathy is a quality my mother does not possess, and in realising what a complete narcissist she is I am able to let her go. I know I tried my best and that is all a person can do.
The next step is up to her and to be honest at this point in time a break be it temporary or permanent is something I am looking forward to. I have nothing left to give
