My mom is in jail for the second time in my lifetime, this time I saw it coming...what I didn't see were all the betrayals that Lead up to it. I recently wrote her a letter after four months of complete silence, calling her out on all of her bullshit- like not telling my the man who helped place her in jail/ my step dad- is her power of attorney, or that she had picture and love notes and the address of the mechanic she was fucking on the side, but just one group photo of me...or about how she tried to get me to lie and tell every one who asked that she had cancer. Do I have to forgive her? This is the second thine she's shattered my trust, and there was a hell of a lot leading up to this that broke my heart, too. I feel like I'm a better person with her out of my life, but is it the right thing? I'm torn.

Do you have any words of wisdom for our reader? Let her know in the comments below.
