Dear Bumblebee,

Thank you for sharing your story. It sounds like you’ve done so much work around creating a meaningful and special life for yourself without your parents. Your mum reaching out after so many years must have really thrown you. It also sounds like you’re very clear about your boundaries which is great but hard that you’re being pressured by your aunts. I’m sorry that you haven’t received any apology from your parents but admire your forgiving heart, acceptance of the situation and clarity about what best serves your mental health.

I’m glad you found us here at Griefline and if ever you need to chat you can also ring the Helpline on 1300 845 745 8am to 8pm (AEDT) Mon to Fri or book a call through the website at

Please write again soon and let us know how you’re going.
