That’s so nice of you to say. I will confess that having them in my life is more difficult than anything and I’m not sure I’m doing the right thing. It’s honestly not healthy for me. I have greatly reduced my parents’ role in my life, though. They gave me no other option, similar to your mother.
It has certainly taken a toll on my mental health, which is something I might write about one day.
Thanks for reading and engaging!
