    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 Can't Stand My Mother

    My mom left my dad when I was about 4 and my brother had to have been about 2. I remember going to her apt. once in awhile for the weekend with my brother when we were young. She then moved to Texas when I was about 10. We then would see her once a year. She was always more...

    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...

    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...

    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...
