These questions have been coming to my mind, esp after some of the conversations Ive had with my mom lately. If you were abused as a child by your parent, do you still love and respect them. Im finding it hard to find any type of emotion towards my mom other than hate and disappointment. My dad is in prison for murder and I feel nothing for him, the devil will surely take him downstairs if there is a such thing. Some may think this is harsh, but the man is a murdeor, child molestor and just crazy, (not like me) he mentally crazy!! My mom sat back and let so much happen to us, brought on alot of it herself, so how can I love her. When I think of this it brings guilt on, she is my mom shouldnt that be enough for love? Why do I feel guilt, how is that fair to me? Do any of you think/feel the same way?
