THE ABSENT MOTHER

thTJSHVGX8 Parents don’t have to hit or terrify us or even use cruel, mean words to leave scars. This seems difficult for people to understand.  I could say well they didn’t beat me but wouldn’t that negate my feelings of loss and abandonment. I would be invalidating myself. It was very painful to reach up to my mom only to be pushed aside like I wasn’t important enough.  It was painful when she left me in my crib for far to long and all  alone. It hurt when my cries went unanswered. The truth about all this is when a parent fails to guide us or protect us or give lots of affection this is neglect. They may just fail to fulfill their important role as a parent. This too is neglect.
