I walked out on my parents...well mostly my mother when I was 18, I kept in touch with my Grandparents, my dad on the sly, and none of my brothers and sisters ( there were 8 of us) I was #2. My mom refused all contact with me and would make trouble for me when I would come home. All of this because I wanted to finish High School and go to college. When I did graduate she didn't come, when I finished college she didn't care....all of sudden now she wants a relationship and I do not, I moved out of state, lived on ramen noodles, scrimped, saved, struggled, and worked my way through college.
I have a good relationship with a good person, no children, and have a good job, I still maintain a relationship with my dad, and my grandparents are gone, I do not want anything to do with my mother, or my brothers and sisters....she feels I owe her something...I feel the only thing I owe her is a big thank you for slamming that door in my face!!!
