I recently had a very disturbing visit with my mother, age 82, from whom I've been basically estranged for a long time. She stayed loyal to my father, a very abusive and mentally ill man, and fore-went her children, preferring to attend to her own and my father's needs.
She is now alcoholic, though she claims she's managing her drinking, and is almost completely shut down from any authenticity and honesty. It is very painful to be around her, and yet I seem to keep trying to have some kind of a (real) relationship with her.
Is it best for me to just let this go, and let her die as she will, or to keep trying to mend and attend to this very disappointing and painful relationship? I feel I've wasted decades on sorrow, disability and healing from this situation. And have also grown tremendously.
I have no clear idea why you would have had me born into this. And yet feel there's got to be some karma to Complete, some lessons to be Learned.
Thank you.

Answer from God through Brian:

"I want you to know that you have done nothing to deserve this treatment. I am sorry your parents did not take the higher road and protect you. In the current situation with your mother, you have done what you need to do and until she makes an effort to share a real relationship with you, nothing will come of it. You can however
use this situation to learn how you can better your own life as well as the lives of others. Use the ways you parents treated you and your family as an example of how not to treat others. Lead your life with higher standards than they have and spread love and light. I am always here for you and you have nothing to fear."
