The last few paragraphs of your story blurred as my eyes welled up. What a raw and heart wrenching story you've shared about your relationship with your mother. It's so hard when this relationship isn't what we need it to be. I try to remember that my mom is doing the best she can, but at times I need something different than what she's able to give. And as a mom myself, I regret mistakes I've made and things I wish I'd done better. Sending you a soul hug today, Rodrigo. Write and photograph on, my friend.
