Glass Promises. - November 16th 2011, 03:49 AM

Let's face it: I don't have a good relationship with my parents. I've accepted that and moved on with my life. I have people that act as mother figures in my life, and that's all I'll ever really need. But, I guess there's some tiny part of me that still wishes things could be different. For the past few weeks, my mom was acting really nice. Without sounding too cheesy, she was acting like a mom should, ya know? I finally started to fall into that routine, thinking that maybe one day, a relationship could form again. That was stupid. As soon as I started getting used to the idea of it, she started acting like the cold-hearted person that she is. She just went back to her old self and the beginnings of our new relationship crumbled. I'm so pissed at myself because I should have seen it coming. I know better than to fall for empty words and glass promises, but I did it anyways. It hurts right now, not because the relationship isn't there, but because I allowed myself to hope that it could be.

wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Yeah, Ive been there done that. I moved in with my father after me and my mom went at it once again. After I moved it she has changed so much. We go out to dinner every so often, talk a decent amount, and share things. We never use to talk.

I wish that hopeful something like that happens to you when you maybe go to college, or move out. In alot of cases I hear stories of moms and dads changing once they realize that you arent around anymore.

I wish you the best, my friend.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

I know exactly how you feel, that's the way it's like with my dad. But there's only so much you can do about it, you know? Like my dad fades in and out of my life. I'll get close and talk to him again, but then it'll revert back to that awkward situation. I think you should just try to be optimistic about it, be open to anything in the future. I'm really sorry though about your mom. You never know though what might happen in the future
