Hi, my name is Susie. I hated my daughter for so long. Now, before you judge me and call me all sorts of names for being a bad mother and all that, I’d like you to hear my story.
Typical story of boy meets girl and they fall in love. Nothing special. James and I graduated from college with good grades but getting jobs became an exhausting task. I worked as a waitress to earn some money, while James was hunting for a “real job”.
“Everything is going to be fine, sweetie,” I usually said with tears in my eyes which I’d quickly blink away.
We went to bed hungry most nights. There were times I stole food from the café just so we’d have something to eat. I was caught one day and given a strict warning. A short time after that I found out I was pregnant and I wept like a baby! We were barely surviving and now we were about to add another mouth to feed and all the difficulties that came with having a baby.
“Everything’s going to be fine,” James consoled me even though he felt like crying himself.
I won’t bore you with details of my pregnancy, suffice it to say that getting pregnant was the worst mistake I made in my life. James changed after I gave birth. He started to neglect me and do everything I hated and get angry when our daughter cried. But no, that wasn’t when I started hating my daughter.
James became a stranger and he started getting phone calls from women. When I confronted him, he finally said that he’s seeing someone else and doesn’t want me anymore!
I couldn’t believe how he’d do that after all we’d been through together! I was devastated as I watched him leave the house, without even asking for forgiveness or begging for a second chance!
That was about thirteen years ago. It was very hard for me bringing up my daughter alone without a good job but I managed just fine. Even if I went to bed hungry, I made sure Nora’s stomach was filled. I was there for every school play, recital, ballet, bake sale and so much more. James was nowhere to be found. Few years ago I won the lottery and was finally able to start my own business and earn a great amount of money monthly! It felt like life was finally rewarding me after all the hard obstacles I faced.
But what did my daughter do? When she was ten years old, she found a picture in between the pages of an old novel; a picture of James and I holding her when she was still a baby. She came asking and I shut her down. Had I known, I should have told her James was dead, after all, he was dead to me.
Four months ago, I discovered that Nora had been communicating with her father for the past three years. She took that photograph and went investigating with the help of her friends and found him. I can’t tell you how betrayed I felt. After everything I did for her. We had a major fight when she wanted to spend the summer with him.
“How dare you do this to me? How dare you go and meet that man who abandoned you? You ungrateful child! After all I sacrificed for you,” I screamed like a banshee.
“Mom, please stop!” my thirteen-year-old daughter shouted as she stuffed clothes into her bag.
“Why should I? It’s because he’s rich, isn’t it? But I earn a lot of money now as well! And I did everything I could to make you happy!” I was so mad at her, I yelled at the top of my voice. Yes, James later got his dream job.
With tears in her eyes, she said “Oh, mom, how can you say that?” She left the house with me still shouting at her.
That was the beginning of so many quarrels. I felt betrayal so strong, it was bordering on hatred. I told her everything I went through in the hands of her father but she still went ahead to have a relationship with him. It got to a point, Nora and I no longer spoke to each other.
Now you know why I can’t stand her. It might seem petty to you but I can’t describe the hurt I feel. I hope you understand why I feel so betrayed. But what happened later might shock you even more!
