I was wondering this the whole time (if your parents read your writing)

I don’t write about my family because my mom reads all my writing.

I have, however, gone to therapy and spent a lot of time working through the sorts of issues you’re working on. I really wish I could publish writing about them. At least I can journal.

I think you wrote about everything very respectfully, and if your mom does see it, hopefully it will be okay, and could even open up healing conversations. ❤
