    Today I received two pieces of mail: My latest

    National Geographic, and a letter-sized envelope addressed in my mom's handwriting. I was much more excited about the magazine, because I knew what would be inside the envelope from my mom. I haven't seen my parents since September 2014; I live far away. My dad texts me...

    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...

    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...

    I am 14 years old, I have a few older sisters.

    while on a trip with my family i started noticing that my mom was protective over her phone. When she was in the shower I looked at it and scrolled up a ways and saw "I love you Babe" and messages like that. The contact name was saved as her sisters name, but I knew it wasnt her...

    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...

    in life. Your mother is supposed to be your guide and protector. Since I can remember mine has belittled me no end. Told me I'm not good enough and a bad person. She has never loved me maternally and tells me this regularly. She has made me feel so inferior all my life I am am...

    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...

    A very sad fact but it is totally the truth.

    I get along with her in periods of time but they have to be when we never have her in my personal space; and that rarely happen! I believe this time though and at this age, it is my fault. I grew up to a hitler mom, an ENTJ, who rules the planet and we must just obey. It was...
