A lot of us do have conflicts with our parents, and those conflicts separate us as we grow up and grow away from our parents. Your mother did the things that she did to you because she is not perfect and has problems of her own. It's true that you did not deserve to suffer for her problems, and she may have suffered due to somebody else's problems. I honestly think the best thing you can do for yourself is forgive your mother so that you can move on. I know this will be difficult. You posted a post asking if we believed in God. Ask God to help you forgive your mother and move on. It could only help. Your mother may have wronged you, Jack, but not being able to move beyond the pain and anguish will only damage you mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Those who hurt us do not suffer from our pain. Only we do.
