My mother has been emotionally & physically abusing me since I was 13 (The physical abuse stopped last year but she still threatens). She’s one of the major causes for my own depression. I don’t exactly know the root of hers, but I think it might have something to do with my grandfather dying a few years ago. She refuses to seek any help.
Every time I’ve tried to talk to my father about how she treats me on a daily basis, I always get the response “You have to remember that she’s depressed, too.”
I can’t comprehend how suffering from depression could ever make it acceptable to abuse someone else.
The rant I could go off on about this concept, sweet god.
