It’s Mother’s Day and I don’t talk to my mom. I’m okay with that. When I tell people why people generally gasp in horror.

It’s okay if you don’t talk to your mom. It’s okay if you are sad or not sad today. Be kind to yourself today.
Pre-pandemic, I made a commitment to organize brunches on Mother’s Day for people who didn’t talk to their moms. It was a lovely way to hold space for others and to emphasize different forms of care, kinship and mothering.
I’m making this thread instead. Here it is. A chance to write out any complicated feelings you have about the day. Or just to read this and know you are not alone. No matter what reason Mother’s Day is hard for you, you deserved better.
