I ask to please be held accountable to the two vows I am making here tonight. 

1. I will always love my children unconditionally. Absolutely. No matter what. 

2. I will never again spend any significant time with my parents. I will not vacation with them. I will not try again with them. I will not let them in my life. Ever. Again. 

Tonight, my parents called me horrible names. They shamed me in multiple ways. And for the first time in my life, I stood my ground. I told them I didn’t care. I am comfortable and happy with my life and who I am, and I don’t need their approval. I have worked hard to rid my life of toxic friends and lovers; why, then, should I let my parents treat me this way?

My parents have failed Parenting 101: unconditional love. Their loss. 

Bye, Mom and Dad. I’ve got better people to share my time and my love.
