          Woman Whose Mom Left When She Was 13 Says, ‘I Have A Very Negative Outlook On Life’


          November 16, 2017

          Tara was 13 when her parents separated, and eventually divorced. She says it was her mother, Christina, who left the family, and she has no idea why.

          “Up until my mom left, life was pretty normal. Once she left I felt empty and alone and really confused,” says the now 21-year-old.

          Claiming she often feels anxious, overwhelmed and angry, Tara says, “I don’t know why I’m like this. I have a very negative outlook on life.”

          Brought up by her father, Jim, since she was a teenager, Tara says her relationship with her mom is “rocky” and she still carries a lot of resentment toward Christina.

          What does she say about being raised by a single dad? Tune in to part one of a two-part Dr. Phil, airing Thursday.
