I just want to start this out by saying that a mother’s love is peace. ❤️ My mom is the closest person to my heart. She’s my rock and my strength… she has stood by my side in times where I had lost all hope & felt like I couldn’t continue. She’s always been strong for my sister and I, no matter what she went through & still continues to go through everyday.
My mother has the biggest heart anyone could possibly have. She would help anybody with anything, without expecting anything in return. She’s just that type of person. You can count on her, no matter what.
It breaks my heart to have to reach out to get her help, because I don’t know what else to do. My mom deserves so much more than what she is going through right now and so does my little sister…
My mom and stepdad had been together for close to 20 years. Of course everything was great at first, but I’ve watched my strong, independent, outgoing, and caring mother turn into someone I can barely recognize anymore.
For years she was in a narcissistic, controlling, mentally & physically abusive marriage. She was constantly told how worthless she was. He would belittle her over things like for not wearing makeup everyday or fixing her hair enough. She wasn’t even allowed to have a job, or have any friends outside of our house.. unless they were his.
Not only did my mom suffer all those years, but my sister and I did too. He has a really bad temper and sometimes he would take punishments a bit too far..
I know this is kinda all over the place, but the reason I am reaching out is because she is at her breaking point. She has lost all hope and is barely hanging on.
After she finally decided to divorce him a few months ago, he began stalking her. He even had a few of his friends follow her around and sit outside her apartment at all hours of the night. Then he began forcing himself back into the picture, threatening her, manipulating her, choking and hitting her… She fears for not only her life, but ours too. She is so mentally unstable she doesn’t go into stores anymore, doesn’t communicate hardly with anyone. Things have been really bad lately…
I just want to be able to help my mom get back on her feet and move out of this town like she wants to do. She’s always been the strong one in our family, but now she needs someone to be the strong one for her.
So, thank you all in advance for reading about what’s heavy on my heart right now. All donations are appreciated. Please keep my mom and sister in your thoughts and prayers. ❤️
