Daughter - Mother relationship
I am 35 and the only child and always found very difficult to communicate with my mother. My father died when i was 3 years old in an estrange accidente and mum decided to never again talk about dad anymore. In my family nobody talks about him neither what makes it even more estrange.
Through the years it was me the only one that ask mum questions to find out more about dad and she always ended up crying. I always talk her that silence is not good for her or myself that is better to talk, but she doesn't agree.
She ended up going to a help center and she is told that this center has told her something about me and the way i react to her about my father's dead. She won't tell me what they have told her at this center and for what I can guess it doesn't leave me on a positive position. It hurst that my mother prefers to belive about her own daughter something that a estranger has told her. I think she is a very simple woman and has decided to believe what is more comfortable for her, rather than facing things as they are. All my life I have been working really hard to keep my love fore her, should this come natural for your own mother ? Thanks
