Hi. I was thinking about your past history of being abused by your mother and your issue in regard to forgiving her.

First of all you aren't along. Millions of adults have been abused as children.

Let the momories surface despite the pain. Dont't downplay the abuse ("it only happened twice_. Events that seem monor in your adult eyes could have been major as a child. So it is OK to recognize what happened.

PLACE THE RESPONSIBILITY ON THE ABUSER. Abuse is never the victim's fault. Don't make excuses for the abuser {"she was under a lot of stress"). There is no good excuse for abuse.

And I acknowledge your courage. You should to. Cause you have worked hard to survive a terrible time in your life. Now you can use that energy to move toward a positive future and I think the fact you set up an appointment to get counseling was HUGE.
