Love Your Mother


Love Your Mother

At times she may be your worst critic but
she will always be your biggest supporter.

Always love your mother, you will never get another.

not true Dave not true, what about my mother, biggest supporter, no abuser yes, abandoner yes but supporter, not in my or many others cases and I live with the knowledge I was unwanted betrayed and abandoned every single day of my life as well as the fact I will never have another mother. Just saying, posts like these aren't always helpful to everyone as you can see this one hit a painful nerve for me :(

this was an unfortunate first visit to your page for me. But I won't let it stop me explore.

I understand how you feel, not all mothers are the same so let's be a good one for our children.

As a mother of eleven, I can certainly attest to the fact that there are many times I have heard from my kids that they hate me, or that I am the worst mother on the face of the earth. Unfortunately we never realize how much those words hurt until we have our own children, and then the damage has been done. One thing to always remember is that words never ever go away. They play over and over again in our minds, and continue to hurt each time.

I have the greatest daughter. No matter the many trials over the years I know she loves me and I will always be there for her, love her, encourage her and support her. Thank you sweetie for sending this. Words that were spoken don't ever go away as they say but you grow up, have your own children and remember what can happen with those words. I've said some really terrible things to my daughter over the years but I believe it made you more determined to not do some of the same with your own daughter. I can not take away what was said or done, only that I am sorry and I love you.

There isn't a week go by that one of my children turn on me. How sad because there is nothing in this world my children could do that would make me turn on them. Makes me sad but am so glad that I have God and His son Jesus in my life. They get me through it, one day at a time.

I have three children two living one gone but not forgotten my first is the worst. It's time I've heard I don't love you or I hate you but deep down inside I know there is love.I want him to know even though I may not be the best I am the best he have and no one else will do the things that I do regardless of what you take me through I'm always there. Now my other is a lil sassy mouth but she loves the heck out of me just got to change that mouth of hers. They know I love them and live for them. My mom left me at eleven and I can say I miss her truly but did well better than well she did great. By leaving me in her mothers hands she know I would be taught well and Lena Mae Cuthbertson did a great job thanks mother for leaving me in the hands of your mother for you knew she do a, job well done thank you Lord for them both. No one can take their places kisses

Mandy, you need to forgive your mom. What was done is done, it does not determine who or what you are. Forgiving your mom will help you to be a better person and the pain will go away as well. I was abused but I love my mom because I love God and He is the ultimate ruler.

I can empathize with you Mandy I too was abused by my Mothers hand or someone she left me with or brought home. She was an addict and died when i was 15 yrs old. My feelings are mixed for sure i know she loved me best she could which was very broken for sure. I have gotten over the abuses i suffered as a child,but, it cost me dearly. I abused my Son for 6 yrs and couldn't fix myself so i left my 6 yr old Son and 18 mnth old Daughter with their Father to raise with another woman who was at least cold to my children and i learned about abuse and more importantly how to not be abusive myself. Alas it was to late my children each came to live with me when they turned 15 yrs old they didn't know me i didn't know them. My boyfriend didn't particularly like them although i treat his as my own, have better relationships with his than mine. They didn't go to school or keep a job. I moved them out of Boyfriends house but left them alone to spend time with Boyfriend didn't abuse but now neglected to spend enough time with them to build solid relationships. Now i want to spend time with them and they don't have the time of day for me. I'm telling you my story to show you things could be worse. My kids know i love them and i know they love me but it's a primal thing not a true bond built on time,emotion,and,shared experience. I gave that kind of love up because i was scared to try and stay and change. I hope you have a healthy loving relationship with your family and overcame your abuse. For there are those of us who never overcame their abuse,neglect,and,abandonment and paid a dear dear price. I hope you can forgive your mom someday. For you not her it will free you of some of that pain. I wish you only the best. :(
