I Don't Get Along With My Mom

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,655 People

    I am thoroughly convinced

    that she is a narcissist. I've had this thought for a while now. After what has been happening for the past couple of days I am very very certain she has NPD. Narcissists are very codependent. They hate independence. They need their victims to be dependent of them. When the...

    OK wow I've never really had a chance to

    actually vent about this but here it goes: I love my mom but she can be extremely difficult to deal with and it's not just me who feels this way, it's with my brother and dad too. she doesn't really understand when she's being inconsiderate at all. I was in the counselor's...

    So I saw my mom today,

    and I almost never see her because she works 2 full time jobs. But even just visiting for a few hours made me sad because I get nerves around her and usually end up messing up something I say. Well she's the kind of person who seems to criticise me about everything. She always...

    I feel she is the source of 90% of my problems

    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...

    This may be something petty,

    I'm an active person.

    When I'm in a good mood, I would sing or dance. But every time I'm in a good mood, my mom would say," you must be very happy." She makes it sound like, being happy is wrong. Sometime she doesn't say it, but she expresses it on her face. When I'm home I'm always in my old and...

    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 wanted me to visit on new year's day

    without my wife and child, because she said that they would be a distraction. That upset me especially since I wanted to bring my family to visit them. I didn't end up going. We visited for thanksgiving and Christmas but apparently she didn't enjoy her time with my wife and son...

    My mom is emotionally abusive,

    rude and will do anything to bring me down. She will tell me she's going to kill herself, and just other things to abuse me. But if I try to call the cops, she will guilt trip me back in by saying I don't want to live in a foster home at that I will get killed with a foster...

    Don't get along with is an understatement.

    Our relationship is so ******* dysfunctional its crazy. She hurts me and I hurt her. Its become a habitual cycle. Its sad how the one person that you love and cherish the most is the one that hurts and disappoints you the most. I wish that I wasn't so vulnerable to her but its...

    My mother and I's personalities are very much

    alike, because of this we're always bumping heads. We get angry at each other easily and have very different opinions. Most of the time she doesn't even feel like my mom, just an old friend that comes and goes.

    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...
