Tough journey

You and your friends journey are so helpful because I don’t feel so alone anymore.
Raised by a mom who had no time for me or my older sister. She was busy dealing with her new alcoholic husband.
I have some horrible memories of that time.
I have little to no good childhood memories.
With that said, I am in my 60’s, my kids avoid me, I have no close friends (we moved a lot growing up).
I never felt accepted by my mom.
My kids don’t need me anymore,(or so I feel), I got divorced after 32 years of marriage because I didn’t know why I SO depressed and lonely.
I know, I know, TMI. Counseling had been helpful but expensive.
I’m still looking for my peeps.
Never felt good about myself.
Question:
When abuse and neglect happened during early childhood, is there any hope? Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.
Still having trouble navigating this Journey.
Thank!
