"But we took you to stately homes"... a thread for adult children of abusive families(1001 Posts)
This thread is a follow up to "My mother has cut me out of her life - long sorry" because we reached the end of the thread life.
I originally posted on that thread to say that my mother had blamed me for something that was in fact her fault, called me a liar, got the rest of the family to gang up on me and then blamed me for splitting up the family.
It generated a huge amount of interest from a number of women who, like me, had grown up in an abusive, or "toxic" family environment where we had been the scapegoat or the dustbin for our parents to dump their own unresolved difficulties. My mother, like all our mothers, has refused to apologise for what she has done and many of us have cut ties with our families in order to recover our lost selves and self-esteem.
has part 3 been started? if so i can't find it! Help!
