What a tragic tale, so we’ll told. But I’m reading a lot of self-blame here…you must let that go. Your mother was an adult, the adult, and it was never your responsibility to heal her, or your relationship. Only she could do that. You had to heal yourself, and if distancing yourself from a toxic environment was what it took, that’s what you needed to do. Let go of that guilt.
