In reply to Mothering my mother and family dysfunction., posted by seldomseen on January 19, 2009, at 13:55:55

Honestly, I'm still glowing from your feedback and the steps I took with my parents.

My mom went to her mammogram and dad cleaned (is cleaning) up the mess - good for him. Putting all that on me (the daughter) is just not fair.


You could have knocked me over with a feather when my father apologized for his behaviour. I'm so thankful that I was able to graciously accept his apology and didn't punish him for it. I truly think he might prove to be trainable! I also think I earned, in some measure, his respect by not bowing to the manipulation. He pushed and I pushed back - harder.

My mother is now and will always be the person she is. There will be no change with her. I accepted this long ago, I'm glad that I *finally* was able to change.
