I saw some of your posts on SW thread, I didn't realize that your Mom has not been a solid part of your life. I'm sorry about that.

I remember reading from you somewhere in the past, that you were unsure about having children, unsure about your ability to be a good parent.
If I have you confused with someone else, I apologize.

I had a conversation with a young woman not that long ago, who had the similar concerns and a similar past.

One thing that struck me about her, was that she was owning mistakes, that were not hers to own.
They were her Mother's to own.

Just a thought. smile

It's fine, and thank you for taking the time to respond to me.

It is not only that she was near-absent that keeps following me. I'd have moved on from it a long time ago, if my family didn't do something every time I screwed up according to their very specific ideals.

"You're just like your mother."

Thank you again for being so concerned.

I will not spend my life this way.

Vittoria--could you take a peek at my thread in OT?

I have a situation coming up that I'd like your opinion on. I just posted it a few minutes ago.

In fact, I'd like some help from you all.
