I Don't Get Along With My Mom

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,786 People

    I don't really know what to do anymore.

    At this point, my mom is the main trigger to my depression and anxiety. I don't like being around her, but I don't want to hurt her. She's my mom, I know she loves me, and I love her too but I can not stand being with her for more than a day. I decided that I wanted to stay at...

    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...

    The history with my mom is horrible!

    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...

    Mother's Day? I'm not all

    that interested. I can say that my mom is a very honest person. That's about all I respect about her. Her last call, which I hadn't answered but she left a message, was to let me know that she hated me and that I'm a "stupid ****." When I texted her about it, her response was...

    My mom is the only thing holding me back.

    She treats me the worst out of her kids. My older brother is in college so she misses him, my little brother is her "baby" so nothing he does is wrong, and then there's me. I've struggled with Anxiety and depression for over a decade, and it came to the point of me trying to...

    my moms relationships are always first.

    I know she loves me but she loves her boyfriend more. Our relationship is dangling of a thin string because this guy is messed up. He hurt her, he's still married, and he is our landlord. so it puts us in a situation where my mom has to stay with him. actually, as I write this...

    So as a child I was abused by my mother,

    I know it was due to her mental illness, but it is still hard for me to talk with her without thinking of all the time I had to spend in the hospital. One day I hope she will apologize for all the abuse so that we can try to bond, I have apologized for not being a perfect child...

    Generally speaking, I love my mom.

    She's a huge part of my life. We also have a lot of the same political views... We have a few similarities. Although, it terrifies me that I'll end up like her. Almost 7 years ago, my mom's life completely changed. All at once, she lost her job (the place closed) AND she got a...

    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...

    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...
