- Wedding: November 2011
I just got engaged 2 weeks ago to my boyfriend of 2 years. We are very happy together and I SO happy I get the pleasure of spending forever with him. The one thing that is putting a damper on my wedding planning and happiness is my Mother. Growing up she was very emotionally abusive and at times physically as well. When I was 5 she divorced my biological Dad and pushed him out of my life making it impossible to maintan a relationship with him or any of his family. Now I am older and a few months ago my Dad found me and now we are working on our relationship. 8 months ago I had a falling out with my Mother over her treatment of a younger sibling that is now 8 years old. We obviously do not have the same father. Anyways she is very emotionally abusive to him and I got tired of seeing it. I talked to my therepist and older brother about it. My older brother brought it to my Mothers attention and she freaked out cutting me out of her life and my younger brothers life. Now that I am getting married I reached out to her to see if she wanted to be a part of my big day. She responded with she “could careless about me and whats going on in my life and doesn’t want anything to do with me or my life anymore”. I have an appointment to try wedding dresses on tomorrow and have no “mother” figure to go with me and no mom to help me plan my wedding. It’s really emotionally draining I have been really upset in the past few weeks. I need help dealing. Any advice?
