Good for you for having the backbone to rebel against a dysfunctional family system and the awareness and imagination to create a better one for yourself. I’m sorry you didn’t get the kind of love all people deserve from their mothers and fathers, but I’m glad you are giving that kind of love to your girl. It seems to me that each generation has a chance to improve a little on the one that came before. You and your daughter are evolution personified. ❤
