After many years of being excluded from milestones and nasty messages criticising my parenting, alternated with painful silences, I have decided to match my son's silence and step back from trying.
His actions tell me that he really hates me (his words tell me this as well!) and there is freedom in admitting it to myself finally because it frees me from being the only one making the effort anymore. I have grieved for a GC who I have been banned from seeing and jumped through hoops for a son who clearly hates me, just to catch a glimpse of my dear GC- but no more.
"When someone shows you their true colours, don't repaint them" (well, not anymore)
