    But We Love Each Other...

    I suppose this is one of those hard experiences that I tend to never try and think about but is a constant thought in my mind. We love each other, worry about one another and care for one another.  It was her that first used the phrase that has come to epitomise our...

    She's a narcissist and I can't be around her

    so I cut her out of my life a year ago. I get flack for it but I've got to do what I've got to in order to be happy.

    My mother is the most narcissistic person ever

    known to mankind. She makes every situation about her, and she doesn't care about other people's opinions except her own. I started dating my current boyfriend last year, and to this day she does not accept him and promises me that she never will. My boyfriend is 3 yrs older...

    Last night was tumultuous.

    I can't drive quite yet, and I was going to a cafe to meet up with some of my dearest friends whom I hadn't seen in a very long time. I felt as though I needed to be around people that I could talk to and confide in. Since I didn't have a ride home, I asked my mom to pick me up...

    We don't get along with each other

    and when I talk about something, she responds with a subject that is so different and she does that all the time. She puts my sister first but actually I need her attention. Somehow because we just don't click, I shut her out because I don't know what else to do. Then she blames...

    Not Being Worth The Try......

    I think what hurts the most when mothers and daughters don't get along is having others in the middle of situations and it becomes exhausting for those people. They get tired of hearing the same 'ole - same 'ole and basically start tuning out your vent. I, just like many, don't...

    ...I Wish I Did Though.

    Over the last 5 years,

    the relationship with my mother has gone south. WAY down south. So much so, that I no longer want to be around her anymore. Since she retired, all she does is stay at home and drink, smoke, and watch TV. She has no friends and doesn't go anywhere. I very rarely watch TV, which...

    My mother is the type of person I'd have

    My mother is a special woman.
