    Thanks everyone for replying
    Well she - in my opinion anyway had no excuse for the way she behaved. She had a wonderful mother who was always there with her. The complete opposite of how my mum is with me. My grandmother practically raised us when we were young... Mum was there but 'not there' - if you know what I mean. The best I can come up with is maybe she suffered depression along with other things.
    And absolutely .... I make a point of being the complete opposite to her. In every way

    Dad worked away most of the time. They used to argue a lot, mainly about the state of the house. He was a mad workaholic who didnt have 'time' for holidays etc but I feel no anger towards him.... No idea why???? could be because he was pretty much never there....

    Being a parent has brought up some memories, I can tell you.

    Sorry for derailing your thread.
    No derail
    A party is one of the big things I remembered the other day. Mum and dad were far from broke but for some reason my boyfriends family threw my 16th birthday. They were battlers yet they did everything. Ordered a cake, food, drinks everything!! Mum didn't even come and made me come home at 9:30
    Makes me wonder if the bf's parents pitied me.

    Yeah, pretty much the same thing for me, though the realization came when I cut my parents out of my life. It's amazing how you think things are normal until you realise that it was only normal because you knew nothing else, it was all you knew.

    My up-bringing wasnt completely horrible, but it wasnt easy... I hold no resentment and still get along with both my parents - they were dealt sh!t cards in life and i can see that now as an adult. I feel as a parent now i can learn from both the things they did well, and tge things they did not do well. I also genuinely believe that experiencing hardship as a child has made me a more resilient adult

    I think it's normal to feel that way when you have your own children.
    And I agree with Bell, it often happens when you cut them out too.
    A few hours after DD was born and I was looking at her I was overcome with sadness for myself as a child. Being a mother now and loving my daughter, I don't know how my mother could do the things she done.

    oP it sounds as if there was some issues going on with your mum
    If it starts to take over your thoughts I'd seek some counseling.
