I've had a parent who has always been a negative person. My mother has always had mental issues, and I've done my best to deal with them. Yeah, I know about always blaming the parents, but everyone dealt with her mental problems by never confronting her. If someone did, her goal was to destroy them emotionally and socially. People that didn't know her just added to the overall problem. I walled away several times for my health and mental health and haven't seen her in months. Now she's got a few months to live. Is it normal not to feel bad because I don't want to see her?
