Hi bubbles,

Really sorry to hear that your mum is not only not being supportive after what you have been through but also that she actively makes you unhappy. It certainly sounds like she’s not a positive influence on you.

I know that it is really difficult when it comes to family but sometimes we just need to make a decision that someone is causing too much damage and it would be better off without their negativity. If she causes that much upset then it is not beneficial for you to see her. After what you have been through you need positive and inspirational people.

I hope you managed to pick yourself up after that terrible interaction with her. You have come so far after everything you have been through with your past abusive relationships. Don’t let your mum cause you to lose focus of that.

Best wishes
