For some people it’s not a Happy Mother’s Day

The Daily Kos has an interesting column about how not everyone is having a happy mother’s day.  It’s true. Society and the media make it sound like Mother’s Day is something that everyone enjoys.  For some folks it’s a day of dread.  For others it’s a very empty feeling whether due to a recent loss of a mother, a woman who can’t have children or an adult child who had an abusive mother.

Here is a partial list of people who are not happy on Mothers Day:

people who have (or had) horrible relationships with their mothers

people raised by someone other than their mother (who did not treat them well)

people who do not know who their birth mother is, and wish they knew

people who do not know where their mother is and/or whether she is alive

people whose mother neglected them

people whose mother abused them physically or sexually

people grieving the recent death of their mother

people grieving the death of their mother a long time ago

people grieving deaths that occurred on/near Mother’s Day

people separated from their mother by great distance who wish they could be together

people separated from their mother by estrangement
