    It is said that we should love our parents.

    Mother is uniqe. Only one of her kind. But my mother is a person who hurt me the most in life. Because of her i've been crying the most in my life. And why? I'm not a bad daughter. I've never done something really wrong. Don't smoke, drink, take drugs, don't go to the...

    I Dont Like My Mom

    I really dont like my mother. She can be nice at times but others shes just confusing. One minute she will be spending 200 bucks on me for everything i want/need, the next minute she can be cussing me out, giving me the bird,  trying to beat the **** out of me, or just plan...

    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 Mother Is The Source Of My Unhappiness

    To my mother , I've been nothing but a burden to her. I was the child she was dutifully suppose to love and sacrifice for on her own and now she is finally reaching her cracking point. She is regretting all the time and effort she wasted on me. Her life was nothing but struggles...

    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...

    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...

    I despise that woman.

    .. Her constant need to get what she wants will be the end of her. My mother is disgusting at times, seducing men to get her way. Of course my father always falls for her BS and forgives her. I am not her daughter in her eyes, neither is my sister. She wanted more sons but...

    and I never will. At this point I just don't want one. And it is not because she is abusive or addicted to drugs or some other form of the horrifying mothers we see today. And I use the term mother loosely.. She is a good person just not a good mom. I really am lucky that I have...
