So sorry about the toxic parent relationships! My parents should never have married…maybe they loved each other at some point? Maybe not. But mom got pregnant with me at 18 and so they got married. I’m the oldest of four. Dad had a temper and mom didn’t know how to leave. Until about 7 years ago after being married for about 40 years she left him. Even though she’s the one that left, she’s bitter, sad, angry and lonely at all the time she wasted staying with him.

Dad is now remarried (to someone who looks a lot like my mom, it’s kind of weird). Mom is just surviving. She tried in the beginning to complain about dad but I put my foot down and said get therapy they’ll be able to help you more than I can. But she won’t do that either.

Not nearly the drama that y’all have! And since I live a few states away, even less for me than my siblings – I think they are jealous of me living far away 🙂
