I Don't Like My Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 249 People

    Hate is a strong word.

    I would say I dislike her as a person, but probably love her in someway. I find the way she freaks at tv characters during shows or movies. Yelling at them critically and getting all worked up over fake things. I think she looks and is behaving ridiculously when she does that...

    I Wish I Could Like My Mom...

    I absolutely feel like a horrible, mean and ungrateful daughter. My mom has done her best to raise me and my brother as a stay at home mom while my dad always worked. And to her credit, considering the lame-brain socially/emotionally challenged parents she came from, she's done a...

    I mean I do care for her she is my mom after all. I just don't like her. We recently had to move in with my aunt, and it is very stressful house. I find myself spending more and more time alone, and truthfully, I like it. But, my mother doesn't. She insists I spend more time with...

    On one hand she is a caring,

    supportive individual to all her loved ones, friends, and extended family. Almost a doormat. She always had a stable career, although we moved a lot. But, she was able to work no matter where we lived. I was with babysitters often. She remarried after divorcing my father. So...
