SilentCall:  First, I am so sorry. I know how hard it is when a mom doesn’t act like a mom. I wish she would have responded better to you and I hope she will come around in time.

Second, it was a hard lesson for me to learn years ago that my mom is a broken human. We forget that our parents are people, too, sometimes becuase as kids we idolize them in their parent roles. But as we get older and they let us down, it can be a hard reality to face. From what you’ve shared, she has always been on the search for an identity through religion. If she isn’t sure who she is as a person, then she won’t be able to be sure who she is as a mom either. That sucks. I’m sorry and my heart goes out to you. I don’t think it’s so much about the religion as it is about your mother’s search for her identity.  I really hope things get better.
