I Haven't Spoken to my Mom in 3 Years. Am I Taking it Too Far?

My mom was pregnant with me when she was 18. It must have been difficult. She had me, and raised me with my dad.

Three years ago we had an argument and she told me in the middle of it that she regrets not aborting me and it was the greatest mistake of her life. I was really hurt and stopped talking to her. She apologized a few weeks later in a voicemail telling me that she only said it in the heat of the moment and didn't mean it but it looked like she did. She's said similar thing in the past too, like "if you weren't born I could have gone to college and had a good career". I think she really meant it.

Now almost everyone including my dad, grandparents and siblings tell me that I'm allowing something trivial to tear our family apart and I should forgive her. But I'm still hurt for what she said.

What do I do?
