I Don't Get Along With My Mom

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,294 People

    We were very close when I was growing up,

    but as I got to seventeen it began to change, our relationship. I grew closer to my father, and I suppose many would think me a Daddy's girl. Certainly, my father has helped me decide on my career where my mother was more traditional, and by her own example she believed a good...

    My mom always get on my nerves.

    I put up with her bullshit every time she complains about something. I'm always the one that has to apologize first even if I didn't do anything. She never appreciates the things I've done when she's at work, helping out with my sister, doing household stuff, cooking for her etc...

    I never have and probably never will.

    Everyday is a constant battle with her. Out of all the ****** people in my life I sadly admit she's the worst. I envy people who have great relationships with their moms. I could never talk to her about most things going on in my life she never understands. And half of the time...

    My mom and I have never gotten along.

    Due to an inability to accurately express myself, differing views and moodiness on both sides we are usually mad at eachother. I love her with all my heart. She has always been there for me, even when I blamed her for the divorce when I was 2(not her fault.). But we just can't...

    so much. I mean she is my mother. Lately we haven't been getting along at all. I'm 24 and had my first son at 14. My mom and him have a very special bond. They're VERY close. Lately he has been in some trouble, so we grounded him. He got mad and locked himself in his room to...

    Me and my mom haven't been getting along.

    Ever since our family decided to move she's been a jerk. We got in a fight the other day and it got intense (she beat me for the first time) and she likes to point out my flaws (I do that to myself as well) and it upsets me. Her verbal abuse has pushed me to self harm. I've been...

    We just don't get along.

    Sure they may be those moments where we're happy in each other's company, but they are just so rare lately. Most of the time we're never on the same page. And honestly speaking, I think we'll never have that mother-daughter bond like most people have. She done and said too many...

    To be honest I don't actually consider her my mom, but the woman who was the host for me to grow in. First of all she wanted a son not a daughter and boy was she heartbroken and surprised when she got me instead. Every day she made sure I knew she didn't want me or had plans to...

    Our relationship is so ******* dysfunctional its crazy. She hurts me and I hurt her. Its become a habitual cycle. Its sad how the one person that you love and cherish the most is the one that hurts and disappoints you the most. I wish that I wasn't so vulnerable to her but its...

    Is it normal that I hate my mother

    so much? I grew up thinking my mom was a «hero», but when I reached my teen years, I discovered her hypocrite side. She usually says what's bothering her straightforwardly, but never acknowledge the good. She sees what bad about a person so easily, that she misses what's good...

    We just plain don't like each other.

    Our relationship has thawed considerably in the

    last year, but nonetheless our history has been tumultuous, to say the least. I'll admit that I take more after my mother than my father. This goes for both personality and facial structure. Additionally, she passed onto me a lighter form of the depression she had, which in term...

    First of all, I love my mother to pieces

    but we simply don't get along. Ever since I can remember, we would bicker all the time. She seems to single me out and blames whatever she possibly can on me. It's sadly too obvious because my father, brother, boyfriend, and close friends all notice this. She's gotten physical...
