    After reading these posts I had much more of an understanding of my own estrangement with my two adult children. I thought I was the worst mother, I did make mistakes but my two kids have also been so mean. I wonder where is their forgiveness after all my apologies and trying so hard to please them . My daughter left at nineteen . I flew there every year for 20 years to be ignored. I had no pride left. My son told me to never send him a card or present and never to call him. They block me everywhere. I would love to know what my son looks like. If I could only see a picture. I’ve had plenty of therapy and sometimes I’m ok but then once again the pain comes and I take out all the picture and cards from years ago.and I’m so ashamed in front of people that I know or meet.

    This is very insightful. I never realized that there were so many of us. My daughters were raised in an alcoholic home, so there was chaos and fighting. But there were also good times and I have tried to talk to them and show them my remorse for how things were. My youngest doesn’t really remove herself from me, but I never see her. She is always available to txt or talk. But she has a busy life. My oldest has nothing to do with me, but if you were to ask her why, shey would say ” what are you talkng about”?. She talks to me on the phone but only fake , polite talk, When I see her in person, you wouldn;t even know that she knows me , much less that I am her mother. But she is very nice when she needs something, She is very smart and has a good jobl I think she thinks she is too good for us and embarssed. I have a good relationship with my son in law and grandkids, but can;t go to their house because she wont allow it. Pretty painful, but I know I can’t change it
