Someone on Reddit shared this story, and it got a lot of attention.
Everyone had a different view of the mother’s actions and the story she narrated. What enraged the internet so much is revealed in what follows…
A 55-year-old mother stunned many online on July 24, 2023, with a post. ‘Throwawayme4158‘ was her Reddit username, suggesting that she wanted to remain anonymous on the platform.
The 55-year-old woman came clean about her four years of marriage to her present spouse. Her child’s stepfather was her present husband.
Her parent’s marriage crumbled in front of her eyes, and her 23-year-old daughter has now been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID).
Even after her daughter told her mother about the bullying she was experiencing at school, her mother did nothing.
She explained to her daughter that she believed all kids were innocent and that calling out her “bullies” would be the same as reporting an adult for bullying a child.
In her speech, she brought up the fact that her daughter would never forgive her.
The other kids started calling her daughter “trash” because her despair had caused her to neglect her personal hygiene.
To solve this problem, her mother only suggested that she take a shower and go shopping for new clothes.
After her tormentors were punished with suspensions and expulsions, her daughter could finally go to school without fear. But she never forgave her mom, and she even told her that a school clinic volunteer had suggested that her mother would have let her fight back if she had been her daughter.
The Reddit user thought their relationship might use a little work if she let her daughter live with her while she finished college and sought a job.
She reasoned that her daughter would benefit from witnessing her mother in a happy relationship for the first time.
But her daughter’s new husband did not appear to be getting along with her.
She spoke about her daughter’s introversion, her tendency to escape into fantasy, and her preference for spending time alone.
She would get irritated because her stepfather would sit down to dinner with her even though she preferred to dine alone.
The 55-year-old woman quickly became aware of her husband’s emotionally aloof behavior.
When her daughter expressed to her mother how uneasy she felt around her stepfather and how “his eyes lingered for too long,” the realization finally hit home.
After much back-and-forth, the husband admitted that he was “attracted” to his stepdaughter and that her constant presence in the house constituted a “walking temptation.”
He went on to say that this was the main cause of his estrangement from his wife.
Although she was distraught, the 23-year-old’s mother insisted her daughter was not to blame for her son’s attraction to her.
She was unable to comprehend everything with her husband and daughter at home; she wanted time alone. Consequently, she parted with some cash so her daughter might spend some time at an extended hostel.
She also advised her daughter to use the housing and financial aid programs at her university in case of an emergency.
Tragically, her daughter confided in her biological father about her father’s distressing predicament.
This news also infuriated her ex-husband, who used social media to cast his ex-wife in a negative light for leaving their child. But the mother reasoned that, due to her ex-husband’s unemployment and enormous debt, her daughter was eligible for the emergency resources.
Taking her daughter out of the house was out of the question, according to the Reddit user. Before anything else, she needed to know if she still wanted to stay married.
Many commenters felt the need to voice their disagreement with the situation, arguing that the mother should not have asked her daughter to leave the house but rather her husband.
After failing to shield her daughter from both her spouse and the bullies, another user criticized her as a “terrible” mother.
