As most of yall know my mother started early with me so she’s a young mother of four. Growing up with my mother only fifteen years older than myself we had a very open, sisterly relationship more than a mother/daughter relationship. I’ve always respected her for bringing me into this world, her strength and her beauty. On the other hand, I’m sad to say she’s lives a life I know isn’t the way I want to live mine. My mother has always struggled with confidence, independency and financial stress. She’s always learned the hard way but by her choice. She’s manipulated her way into situations, taken advantage of situations and bullied the people closest to her. After several past experiences it’s finally caught up to her. This last week has been one of the most rough weeks I can recall for my family and myself. My mothers relationship failing, her lack of financial support, and the stress of having a teenager has caused my mother to lose it. It’s been a constant build up of experiences, failure and heart ache to make her feel worthless and ready to give up. FINALLY she’s agreed to seek help! Monday was the start of a new chapter for her and my sisters. This last week I’ve really seen the meaning of family and love. It’s a beautiful thing to see the people in your life come together in a time of need and work together to make things right.
My point of sharing this story with you all is not only to answer the questions about my mom at once but also to let each one of you know life’s too precious to ever think about giving up. Life gets bad at times but that bad time WILL pass and before you know it you’ll be enjoying the good times life has to offer. You may think no one in the world cares but when times get tough you’ll be surprised to see the amount of people that do. You’ll also be surprised not see the people you THOUGHT cared. Keep your head high and never let anyone degrade you.
Believe in yourself.
(If you don’t, who will?)
Thank you everyone for your concern and advice. Yall keep me inspired and strong! <3
