Over the last year I've been trying to fix my relationship with my adoptive mother. My childhood was filled with abuse and humiliation that she's forgotten it's ever happened. It makes it very hard to be around her because she'll spend hours crying about how it hurts her that everyone thinks she's a child abuser and she doesn't understand where they get this from.
I tried to forgive her and move past it, but this past year of having her back in my life has been hell. I really think it's best for me and my family if we cut ties, but the last time I nearly had to file a restraining order and move to get her to leave me alone.
Has anyone else had to cut ties like this? Any suggestions for keeping the stress level down in what is going to be a very tiresome time?
Please don't bash me. I'm beaten down as it is today and could really use some advice. Thanks ladies.
