    One of the reasons my mom's relationship with

    me is strained is because we can't seem to go anywhere in public without her criticizing what others are wearing. Whenever we went to the Christmas Parade in town, mom just criticized half the people in the crowd. I ended up being annoyed the entire time. I tried telling her...

    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...

    I have the worst relationship with my roommate.

    (That's what I call my mom) She treats me like a child, I am 17 years old. I'm not allowed to stay out late past 11 and I'm always either locked up at home or at work. I don't even have my own car and it's hard getting to work and to soccer practices. My roommate doesn't...

    My mom's INSANE!! She's always

    so over dramatic. Always making a huge gigantic deal out of nothing. I'm definitely more of a laid back, just let it flow type of person. I try not to dwell too much on a problem, and try to focus more of a solution. I try not to let a bunch of stuff get to me, and bring me down...

    and I come from a rich cultural back ground and my mother is from the most royal family from my country. I'm going to be 21 in less than 6 months and I am still not getting the freedom and privacy I deserve and it just puts me in such an anxious, stressed and depressed state (I...

    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...

    Hate is a strong word,

    so no I don't (currently) hate her or even dislike her most of the time. In fact she has been helping me with my gran recently, so that's a plus. However I grew up with her as the main influence in my life. My gran was cool, just an accepting type of person. My mom wanted things...

    Not that we fight all the time,

    no. In fact, my mom's a "cool" mom. In high school, everyone was jealous of my freedom. I've never had a curfew (Except when I was grounded), I could date whoever I wanted, go almost wherever I wanted... My mom was strict about certain things: Manners, Drugs/Alcohol and School...
