Sounds like you have come to a really good place then with it all...its just unfortunate that you still have to deal with your mums mistakes from other people by learning the things she has done.

It's hard to accept your parents as being deeply flawed and when the realization hits you it's painful, confusing, humiliating and distressing.

Thank you Miss Lily!
As long as I have the support of my DH, who has been more or less my backbone for sometime, I can confront my mother. It's still hard to. But when that arguement erupted last year, she treaded and said somethings that I could and would not tolerate. It showed me that I was stronger then she was. It was.. kind of in a way liberating.

It's quite earth shattering when you come to the realisation that you are stronger, kinder, etc etc than your parents. As kids, we hold our parents up as demi gods almost. They can do no wrong! But at some point, and I think it's different for everyone, we realise that they DON'T in fact know everything and they can be deeply flawed human beings. I'm so glad that you have found peace in yourself regarding how you feel about your mother.
