Rob tells me this a lot...and I know it's true, but I still don't know how to quite accept that my mother is never going to get "it" or me and that she is never going to fully give me 100% of her attention. How do I let go of that want/need? I do know this to be true in my head...but my heart desperately doesn't want it to be true.

I wish I had the answer.

If you figure it, out, let me know.

Just today I was complaining that this whole situation with Don is not about mom, it really just isn't about her.

I just wanted to scream that she's never been a mom, and she never will be.

It's hard. The need for parental "approval" is a very hard thing to release.

In the end we can only account for our own actions and decisions. She's gonna be who and what she is. You have to do the same.

You're in my prayers.

Denial is part of the grieving process. Move throught the process of grief, allowing yourself to grow at each stage.
