I have respect for my mother but we were never close. She always has had very close relationships with both of my younger sisters. It just makes me wonder since I was in first grade, what did I do to deserve such a mother. In her eyes, I was never pretty, never girly, never sweet. When I would fall and cry for her because of my bloody scraped up knees, I saw her disgust & hate on her face as she dropped a tissue on the ground and told me stop crying because it's making my face uglier than it already is. This behavior from her was repetitive until I was old enough to be on my own.
My sister next in age to me (3 years younger) observed her treatment of me over the years and now treats me the same like I'm lower than dirt. My baby sister (9 years younger) was too young to remember but as an adult she says she now sees the actions of my sister. But she won't say anything about my mother.
My mother has her 2 main disappointments of me. I know I will never live up to her financial expectations or her racial expectations (I didn't marry a CEO and I married outside of my race.) I married for love, not for money.
I'm a believer than all things occur for one reason or another. I have a very tight bond with my daughter. She tells me that I am her best friend all the time. And I tell her that I will always be her best friend forever infinite. I love my daughter so much it hurts. I could never demand crazy expectations of her nor make her feel unwanted/unloved.
