I didnt think of it that way, but wonder why. Hmmm.
I once asked mom why she didnt protect me from his physical abuse as a child and she said I was making it up.
So, I made a mistake ask7ng why he doesnt call me? For example I sent a birthday card to him and it was my mom who thanked me. They live in another state. He could have picked up the phone and thanked me himself, no? If she is protecting me, than why did she lie about the physical abuse? Sorry I am little confused and mixed up
My Dad did.
I AM TRYING TO SEE IT AS PROTECTING ME. oopscall caps there. But isnt it all about protecting him? Hiding him from me and his disease and telling me I made up the physical abuse?
Deep shame, does she even feel that, or is she too deep in denial? is it possible she believes her own lies? Last inquiry, I know weve been on a while.
