In my case, they just parrotted whatever my mother would come up with. Everyone I know, who doesn’t know the real her, thinks she is a delightful person. It is only when the facade is questioned or cracked that she’ll burn you down. There is a list of victims in her wake I can reference, so I am not the only one she did this too. It is just sad when a parent does this to their own children. I mean, how pathetic is that? I am curious as to who her next victim will be… likely my brother’s wife simply because our mother HAS to have a victim to be a victim, someone to blame for the messes she creates. Seeing as I’m no longer around to pin things on, she can’t ride on my coattails.
