Do you miss your parents?

    I don't miss my dad but I still want to call my mother fairly often, though she died 8 years ago. The impulse to call her, with a consciousness that she was still alive, finally stopped last year. The recollection that she was gone would happen in an instant, but still, every day or so for years I would want to talk to her, and then have to realize she was gone.

    kls, a lot of us had it bad/weird/heartless growing up but I've never heard anything like what you lived with, ever.

    Ditto I sometimes wonder what life would have been if my parents were different but that is fantasy stuff - a place I don't visit too often.

    I miss both of them: my father died 12 years ago, my mother nearly two years ago.

    It ain't easy knowing that I can never ask them anything again, or tell them when something nice happened.

    My parents aren't dead ... and I don't miss them!

    My dad is dead, and I think about him every day.

    As for my mom. I do miss her. Not to worry, I'll just throw bigger objects at her whenever she bothers my girlfriend again with her religious crap.

    My mother died in 1989. The world is a better place without her around to cause trouble. I don't miss her.

    I haven't seen my father since 1992. I rarely think of him, much less miss him.

    There's a lot of pain here! I guess that IF we had lived under "normal" conditions we might ALL miss out folks, but I understand that, where there's been abuse, there's no love-loss! Still there's a natural longing to love and be loved by our parents! True? Anyway, the Watchtower "truth" may have blinded our parents (including some of us for a time), and created a very difficult situation at this point!

    Take care all, and thanks for your kindly replys!
