My mom Abused us. She nonstop recently claimed she never hit us. I brought up her burning me with a lighter because she left me and my brother in the tub alone as babies. My brother fell under the water at 1yo. I was 2.

She came back and freaked out. Pulled a lighter out and burned me. I remember that.

She didn’t apologize. “A mom isn’t perfect! And you understood that it was bad! You didn’t ever not understand from then on”!

Me: if you don’t apologize for it and keep justifying it I’ll never let you back in. You say you’ve missed me and here is the opportunity to get me back.

Her: a mother isn’t perfect

Me: that isn’t an apology

Her:!I tried my best!

Me: that isn’t an apology

Her: I just got diagnosed with cancer, please.

Me: that isn’t an apology.

Aka: she deliberately chose to put even a fake apology before me —PoliticalNerdMa
