For all of you that have decided 'no contact' is the safest option  

Mother's day approaches with all the commercialism, sentimental advertising, and the schmaltz that is absolutely endemic on this day.  For many who have a decent relationship with their parents/mother, this is a time to celebrate that relationship.  For those of us who are low contact or no contact due to the choices and toxicity of our family, it is another helping of guilt and sorrow, and another opportunity for folks unintentionally to rub salt in what may be a very thinly healed wound.

My advice on sharing your thoughts, helpful ideas, memories and solutions to someone that has distanced for safety and healing...

JUST DON'T.  See the link above.
