I feel my mother could have done better. Her and my dad got divorced when I was 5 years old. My mother has never really been happy since then. She always did what she could for me and my sister to do well. But she never really managed to care for me and what I did. Even when she found a new man when I was 8 years old. Then she was pretty happy for a few years, then she started to suffer with pain and has been doing it ever since. After 10 years of pain, she was diagnosed with some form of muscle wasting. She has been depressed for as long as I can remember. But all this has been done I have not had the support of my mother that I should have had. Even today I am now 38, she is still depressed and in great pain. The new man she got didn't do any good to me either. He is the type where nothing is good enough and if it is then man does not praise others. All this has left me with poor self-esteem, since there has never been anyone who said I was good enough as I was.
