I think this post will give other women the courage to move forward with healthier thinking and choices. It is utterly/emotionally challenging to relocate from an abused mother that you yourself want to rescue. It sounds like you view her as a very worthy, loyal parent to her kids and granddaughter. Life consumes us with circumstances for which I believe we all need to build our faith and the strongest connection with God (our healer and miracle worker) that we possibly can. Seeking therapy is a good choice for some and not for others. It is your journey, your choice. But anyone who blurts out “you need therapy,” sounds like a candidate for some therapeutic assistance as well. God is patient beyond our understanding and blesses each one’s path.
I know I was blunt, but a 34 year old woman still living at home hoping that she won’t repeat her mother’s mistakes–as if it’s an issue of fate and out of her hands– is a candidate for therapy. My suggestion was not meant as an insult. There is nothing wrong with talking to an educated person who can give her the tools to change.
Thank you for your comment and reading my post!
You need to see a therapist. You’re 34 years old, and you should have your own life by now. Instead you’re stuck in somebody else’s sad drama. Your mother is a grown up, and that’s the life she chose for herself. You sound like a very passive person when you say that you hope you don’t repeat the cycle of violence. You have the power to make that choice, but you don’t seem to realize it. Seek therapy ASAP. Good luck.
I think it took great courage for the writer to write about her experience. She doesn’t need a therapist. Writing is her therapy. And she sure doesn’t need criticism. I say, she won’t have trouble with domestic violence just because she’s written it all down and she’s identified it in front of millions. It’s very hard to show everyone the truth of things, and then go on to repeat the cycle. Getting it out there and talking about it will only help her.
Thanks so much for your comment. It was difficult to write and I could only imagine the backlash I will receive from family members who do read this post. Writing is very therapeutic and I feel confident I will not repeat the cycle. Thanks again!
