Mother's Day Can Be Difficult For Some Women
by Anonymous Mom aka Anonymom
I do get how Mother´s Day can be difficult!
I was abandoned by my mother upon birth
like you would abandon an animal
(without a care of what will happen).
After a little time in an orphanage,
I was adopted by another mom, the only one that I think of.
She, in turn was mortally wounded by motherhood:
her own child had died,
and they did not allow her to mourn,
they told her "that never happened" and "make another one".
That marked my story, and my relationship with
her ambivalence, and lack of healing..
Later, I became a mom, to heal myself,
wanting to give the love I myself needed,
which of course, never works
because you cannot give what you do not have!
I thought "because what I went through I will be amazing",
and instead I was depressed, and inflicted that upon them!
But I have been healing ever since.
Unlike my adoptive mom,
I got LOTS of support, and help through the years,
and I conquered the scary dragons she never did
...I am happy today, but I DO get it.
I am enjoying my kids, and the relationship I have with them now,
but that does not mean I forgot the hardship, the pain, the complications
... Also my heart goes out
for the ones that cannot be moms,
those that like my own adoptive mom,
lost a child,
or their own mom,
those misunderstood because they
make the choice not to become mothers:
Wherever you are emotionally today,
it is OK, and I send you LOTS of love,
and the best, most tender healing feelings,
and hope you go gentle, and love yourself today!
