In a recent Reddit post, a user faced a tough decision: should they apologize to their mother, who had disowned them multiple times because of their sexual orientation? Read on for the full story.
His Mother Was Religious
Charlie had a strained relationship with his 37-year-old mother due to her firm religious convictions and struggle to acknowledge his identity.
He Loved His Mother
Charlie admired his mother’s strength and determination throughout their lives, even though her strictness had occasionally posed challenges.
Despite her strict nature, he had faith that he could confide in her with his true indentity.
She Was Furious
Yet, upon the discovery of his sexual orientation, his mother’s response was anything but supportive. Instead, tears, anger, and hurtful words followed. And it happened more than once!
He Was Punished
The first two times Charlie confided in his mom, he faced daily grounding and punishments. However, on the third occasion, he was completely disowned.
His Grandmother Took Him In
During this trying period, Charlie found solace with his grandmother, who accepted him without judgment and provided the support he needed.
However, fate brought Charlie back to his mother’s home, and this time, the tensions escalated to a point where a physical confrontation unfolded, leading to another instance of disownment.
His Was Pushed to Apologize
Charlie’s grandmother is pushing him to apologize for fighting with his mother, saying that while what she did was wrong, he shouldn’t have fought with her.
Charlie told her that while it was wrong to fight with her, he won’t apologize as she didn’t deserve the satisfaction.
God Would Want Him to Apologize
His grandmother was upset and said God would want Charlie to apologize not for his mom but for him.
He Won’t Do It
But Charlie was firm in his refusal and said he didn’t care and wouldn’t apologize.
Being Honest About Who You Are
After some time passed, Charlie felt bad about what happened and took to Reddit to ask whether he was in the wrong for not apologizing to his mother.
Several Redditors sided with Charlie and said that he was not wrong.
No Future With People Who Would Judge You
One Reddit user wrote, “Your mother views you as an abomination. You have no future with people who would judge you for what a 2000-year-old book says about things they were in the dark about and never fully understood.”
Another Redditor commented, “Your mother’s job is to love and protect you. I don’t know for love, but she’s failing at protecting you.”
