I find that the older I get the more I resent my mother for how she treated me as a kid. She wasn’t necessarily physically abusive (although she would occasionally spank me with a wooden spoon for bad grades etc..) she was mentally abusive and it really %%%%ed me up. I’m in my early 30s and just barely finding success in life and dating after spending the last 10 years teaching myself how to be a man, how to interact with women, etc.. I just think about how she treated me when I was younger and can’t understand how someone could treat a child, especially they’re own child so cruelly.
A couple months ago she had a heart-attack scare and I visited her at the hospital. I felt almost nothing for her. It’s kind of %%%%ed up.. I’m just curious to know how other men raised by single mothers life’s have turned out. How’s your relationship with your mom as an adult?
