try telling your mom that she unintentionally hurt you in those younger formative years. try to tell her that now, at twentyseven ,you're not blaming her, you're just stating a fact in hopes of deeper connection, freedom and growth. tell her that you never once doubted her love for you because of how freely and fully she gave and continues to give of herself for the betterment of everybody else. tell her you noticed the sacrifices made, and admired her for it. try telling her she has nothing to worry about, she's loved as she is; and try telling yourself that too.
- for mom
