Hello!

19 Comments

Some of you may have seen my others stories where I’ve mentioned being ill for nearly a year with various illnesses and apparently I’m on my way to type 2 diabetes (still shocked by this), others might have seen where I wrote about a difficult childhood and trying to stay happy. I started counseling about 3 weeks ago. It hasn’t been too bad although I still get a wide range of emotions. I have started bumping into my family lately in our small town which is hard to deal with when you don’t speak to them. My mum is by no means a great mum and has hurt me a lot but lately I’ve been able to remember the times she has given me good advice. It made me miss her and wish we got on better. It’s been nearly a year since I spoke to her. Yesterday I went and bought some special hair care products. As I was washing my hair I could suddenly smell my mothers beautiful scent, It made me want to cry right there in the shower. I got out and dressed. I then sent her a text message to say I missed her. We texted for the next 20 minutes and then she asked to come over and talk. We spent 4 hours talking and it was great. I don’t know if things will be better between us but I want to give our relationship a chance.

  • I thinking giving someone another chance is the way to go, don’t let any IF’s play on your mind one day in the future, keep trying, hope everything goes well and keeps getting better. x

  • One day at a time. That’s all you can do. Keep the lines of communication open, and if at all possible, never let the last thing you say to someone (either in person or on the phone) be hurtful words. I’m so please for you that you & your Mum are hopefully mending a few bridges. Forgiveness is incredibly powerful, and although it won’t happen overnight, if you can work towards forgiving, it will free you more than you can possibly imagine. I wish you well.

  • I don’t know what happened in your childhood but it sounds like it’s making you more miserable not talking to your mum and it sounds like you could use some help and happiness in your life…

  • it is always hard when you don’t talk to your family – I haven’t been in touch with my brother for over six years (his choice).

  • It’s always worth a chance. If you don’t give it a go you will never know what might have been. I have been in similar circumstance with a family member and it turned out to be a positive. You just have to be in the right frame of mind to be receptive to what might happen. I wish you all the best and hugs.


    • It’s better to have trice than to wonder what if.

  • Ì hope things work out with you and your mother. I would be lost without mine and don’t pay her enough attention. This will change when she gets out of hospital tomorrow.

  • I am really glad you have reunited with your mum. Love is all you need. You have to forgive her, this doesn’t mean it was right what she did, but you need peace in you and this goes for any other family. Put the past behind you, don;t look back only look forward.
