Kalyn: "I Didn't Want to Be Hurt Again"
When Leslie asked me to consider meeting with my mom again, I was hesitant at first. But after talking to Leslie, I figured I should be the bigger person and give my mother another chance. I was scared about the dinner with my mom; I didn't know how it was gonna go. I didn't want to be let down or hurt again.
I have no idea why my mother would think I wanted her to be present at my baptism, given our history. I thought it would end up badly, and I was right. But the rodeo was a blast and it actually was fun having my mom there, and for her to be able to meet my friends. That was good.
My mom first started disappearing for periods of time when I was around the age of 6. I had my oldest sisters Dani and Brianna and my brother Greg to help...but we were all so young.
She has done a lot of wrong things to me throughout my childhood. It will take a lot more than "sorry." I will have to see consistent change.
It was incredibly difficult to have my mom criticize how Leslie is handling the situation between Whitney and me, because I know Leslie has my back 100 percent.
