Parental Rejection – Why My Mother Rejected Me

Last Updated February 21st, 2019

Parental rejection is difficult for a child to understand and the effects of parents rejection can be long-term. Perhaps my story will help others to understand their own parent’s rejection.

My Story of Parental Rejection

As a child and young adult, I could never understand why my mother rejected and never showed her love towards me. She always seemed distant, callous and cold-hearted.

In the summer months, she locked us children out of the house until late afternoon. Her children were a bother to her.

Often, I acted in anger for her lack of protection and love. She stopped doing her job. I resented her actions or lack thereof, and a deep hatred for her grew in my heart.

Why Doesn’t My Mom Love Me

Last Updated October 27th, 2018

Why doesn’t my mom love me? Growing up with my mother was a constant battle. I thought, “My mom doesn’t love me” for many years.

Her behavior towards my siblings and me was utterly repulsive. My mom chose to favor her sexually abusive husband, who was a pedophile, over her children.

At the age of fourteen, my father took off into the woods and tried to commit suicide. Perhaps he was ashamed of his actions or feared what would happen to him in prison.
