    Hi Anita,

    I think my mother assumes she always tried her best, but she grew up in a poor, and even more abusive household. She always hung that over my head so that I would feel grateful.

    Unfortunately due to financial constraints I do live with my parents but I am saving to move out and do my best to distance myself from her. It can be difficult because in her mind she never did anything wrong. I wish I knew exactly what was wrong with her but she refuses to go to therapy.

    What I want my audience to take away from this post is that just because someone is your relative and they shower you with gifts doesn’t always mean that they always have the best intentions. I am also trying my best to avoid becoming like my mother so that my own children will have a happier childhood than I did
