Day 22.o Barely there. I’ve been reflecting a lot today about my mother. How she raised me and where she is now. I realize that she has left me. Left me for better business prospects. Taken my younger siblings (ages 12 & 14) and moved to the east coast. 3,000 miles away. She had an amazing well paying job where she was. Her career has became more important to her than me and my sisters. Our relationship is on the back burner and maybe it’s not something that developed but something that was always there. And now I feel alone and abandoned by the person who should be there more than anyone else…And more importantly her decision is hurting my relationship with my siblings, I can’t be there for them when they need me. I can’t be there for their first real dates, homecomings, proms, etc. And that is the worst part of all. Because more than I value than my relationship with my mother, I value my relationship with my sisters.
