I have wondered if it was my mother's death or the horrific, relentless sabotages and slander done by my brothers at the end of her life and afterward that set things in motion for me.Could be; from what I've read, the death of the 2nd N parent is a catalyst & it put me on the road to freedom.
I was slightly aware during her life for an indescribable longing for her to come clean at the end of her life, but she didn't.Me too. It's a kick in the gut. No closure, no Hallmark made-for-TV-movie ending. I was left with a tangled web of sh*t, which I spent years in & out of therapy, trying to detangle, just to understand what happened & how to move on. Oh well, that's how it goes. But, you are now detangling & journeying towards clarity & freedom. YAY!
