TW: Abusive Parent
When I was growing up, most of the mothers I knew were the stay-at-home, bake cookies and cakes kind of moms. My mom however was dead set on killing me.
As far back as I can remember my mother was cold towards me. She kept up the persona of loving, caring mother in public but at home she couldn’t give two cents less about me or what I was doing.
She always told me I was wanted, but never made me feel that way.
When I was 17 I came out as bisexual, she tried to poison me and my gf. She said it was an accident, but I have no doubt it was on purpose.
After she passed away, I kept silent about most of what she did to me. A few close friends know about some of it, but no one knows everything and I really don’t see the point in talking about all of it.
I’m just writing this so if anyone else out there is going through something similar they know they are not alone.
My life is good now. I am safe and happy. Knowing she’s gone gives me peace because I know she can’t hurt me anymore.
