Not happy to remember your mother?

This is the day in the United States when society pressures us to honor our mothers.

This post, however, is permission for you to not honor yours, and to know that you are not alone.

My mother has been dead for 10 years now, and while there were good things about her and I have some good memories of my childhood, overall I wish I'd been aborted or given up for adoption (each of which she did to pregnancies previous to the one that resulted in me).

If all the emphasis in advertising and conversation about mother's day is bringing up bad stuff for you, you have my sympathies, and feel free to vent about it to me (publicly, anonymously, or privately). This is a safe space for people who have bad memories or bad relationships with their mothers.

And if anybody wants me to be their mother, we can negotiate that.

Amen. I'm glad I was born, but even more glad my mother is dead. What a horrible, self-centered and sociopathic person she was. The world is a better place now that she's shed her mortal coil.
