My oldest daughter made the decision to start talking to my mother again, if, she could abide by my daughter’s rules and boundaries. The day she spoke and met with my mother, I got this bright idea, that maybe things could change and I should text her. Dumb idea. This is what I said, “Mama I know that you talked to ***** today and I’ve been thinking. I don’t think you understand that I do love you, I have been in so much pain through the years that I just pretended it wasn’t there, then, when the last incident happened, when I felt violated, It was just the last straw. If we were to try again, I would want us to try to go to counseling together, with my counselor and work on it from there. I am praying about this, just be patient and give me time to think.” She told me to take all of the time I needed, then after that the other texts were contradictory. The last text she said this, “Just pray, u might not need me,” Wanda
After that text my attitude was, Yep you’re right, if you’re gonna say something like that, then I don’t need you. Yet again, she was not willing to fight for me. I don’t want her around my grand daughter, but I have no choice in the matter. My mother will be in constant competition to out do me. She was and never will be, mother material, that is something I have face now, that will never change. Not one person can say that i didn’t try.
