How did you manage to come to terms with your decision to live without me?

I've been intensely thinking about this for a while, especially after I became a mother myself.

This work is a decisive step on my long and thorny path to understanding and forgiving my mother. I contemplate fragile moments of childhood. I embrace the transience of time. I try to comfort my inner child. I finally managed to pave the way to myself, but I'm not sure if I have completely understood and forgiven.

What underlies this work is my childhood trauma. When I was 2 years old, my parents separated and I ended up being raised by my grandparents.

This work is about something painful, yet necessary to go through.
