I am at a point where I don’t know what to do. I have told my biological mother that I cannot support her being in prison and continuing to make the bad choices that get her there. She has hurt a lot of people in her life including me. I used to write her back-and-forth to try to motivate and encourage her. I have been doing that since I was 17. Before then I was too young to understand and I would communicate on the phone only. My life has gotten rougher in a lot of ways and I had to take a breather and take care of myself. I had sent her a letter telling her that I would not support her write her anymore because I had to take care of me. I really do struggle, because she continues to write me and begs me for communication. It’s a tough spot to be in, I guess because I’m not a mother I don’t understand. I am trying to be sympathetic and forgiveness is a choice, I have forgiven her but yet I don’t want to empower bad decisions. My first thought is to stick to my guns and to let her ride out the rest of her term alone. The other part of me continues to feel bad and thinks that I should write her. I need an outsider’s opinion because either way I’m not sure if it’s the right decision….. What would you do?
