Good Morning all on this new thread.
It’s raining and windy today so won’t be venturing outside unless it changes.
I can’t believe it’s already a week since my D’s wedding. Thankfully they had some sunshine.
I enjoyed the ceremony and chatting to some people at the drinks reception. They also had an ice cream van after the ceremony parked up in the front of the venue which people enjoyed.
It was lovely to see them get married and so happy. There were lots of pictures taken and I was part of a few.
My D has since thanked me for going.
It did feel odd not staying longer, but when I look back tbh I wouldn’t have wanted to stay longer. Just being there to witness their wedding was a wonderful memory made that I will cherish.
After the last few months and all the hurt I’ve felt after being treated in such an unkind way I’ve realised I never want to be put through that hurt or extreme devastation again.
I can feel that our relationship has changed forever. It is sad, but I’ve learnt I must look after me now. My D is a grown woman and married. If she wants me in her life she knows where I am.
I don’t want anymore arguments or horrid words said. I’m not going to put myself through anymore pain or take anymore emotional abuse. Or made to feel terrible for things that happened many years ago. We all move forward and Im going to look after myself first.
Walking away is hard but it is necessary so that I can change the relationship in the future and protect myself from being treated in such a disrespectful way.
I’m keeping the door open for a positive, respectful friendship, whatever it may be in the future. I will be her Mum when she wants me to be, but it will take time and I’m determined to not let myself get caught up in this emotional drama again.
Let’s all live happy lives looking forward to positive experiences with the people that do love and value us.
Happy August weekend to all
