I'm very glad you shared your story as I have felt so alone and misunderstood. Sometimes just writing out those feelings and words helps to release that energy so that it may open the door for healing. My mom was the one that singled me out. I knew from a very young age that there was something wrong with her cause other mom's were not like her. My mom grew up with alcoholic abuse parents and spent 3 years in an orphanage. It didn't make my pain any better, but I have been able to forgive her.
