I Don't Love My Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 63 People

    My mother was both neglectful

    and a bully. For many years, she has been treated for depression, but I believe she is mentally ill with a more serious disorder. When I was eight years old, she held a butcher knife to her stomach and threatened to kill herself in front of me so I could watch her "bleed to...

    I am 41 years old and my mother has come to see

    my 8 month old daughter and I have realized fully that I don't like my mother and am just tolerating her. I don't even know if I love her. All my life, she used me as her therapist. She sold me out, talked bad about me to her friends, her love was conditional (I was loved if I...

    I want to love my mom

    but I just don't. It hurts me to say it and I wouldn't tell her that because I care about her as a person, just as I care about anyone else's feelings. When I was growing up she constantly ridiculed me. We were close when I was very young, but once she married her second husband...

    The Truth And The Lies

    I was playing a game of chess with a friend while my dad watched.  I was enjoying myself - my friend was better at it than I was, but not so much that I didn't at least have a small chance to beat him.  My dad kept on commenting on the game, making random comments...

    My Mother

    I don't know where to start. My mom is emtionally abusive. I know there are other moms that are worse than mine. But, I think she has done enough to me that I have stopped loving her. I'm not sure I ever did. I know she had a hard life, but so have I. Things are better now, but...

    When growing up, I observed other kids with

    their moms and always wondered what that would be like... to actually want to be around your mom... to seek her out... to be touched by her, hugged... squeezed... teased... loved. That wasn't my world. In my world, my earliest memories were of avoiding my mom; listening for...

    I hate her. Honestly I do,

    she makes my life hell. I go to school and get bullied (which obviously isn't her fault) but then, I come home and I have to deal with her verbal abuse , sometimes physical , and it kills me inside. She doesn't care how she hurts me, but its almost like her goal in life for me...

    Growing up I was bullied,

    by classmates and my second grade teacher, and had many broken friendships due to friends who were manipulative and the gossip types. My mother always from the beginning would have strange reactions to every new friendship. My first three days of kindergarten she sat with me in...

    I Don't Love My Mother

    Up until I was eight years old, my mother was my world. But then she left in 1999, after neglecting me because she had a drug problem. After eight years of no contact, in which I thought she was dead, she showed up out of nowhere. I didn't know how to deal with her, and I even...

    My mom used my college trust fund set up by her

    father ( all his grandchildren had a college fund) for boarding high school. I didn't fit in with rich kids. I was miserable. I was 16. I asked to come home, she said I'm not raising a quitter. Then when it came to Thanksgiving vacation she said I would have to stay at school...

    My Mom left me when I was four.

    I don't remember her. My older brothers remember her and talk about how devistated they were when she left. She came back into my life when I was in my mid 30's, but I never felt like our relationship was a 'mother daughter' thing. It was a duty to take care of her thing...

    The Hypocrite

    My mom's a spiteful, judgmental, shallow excuse for a human being with a stunted heart and no ration, logic, or capacity for respect. She says all I care about is myself, but the truth is that she's the only person I *don't* care about, and that's the only side she ever sees of...

    I Don't Love My Mother. I Just Pretend That I Do.

    I don't love my mother. I just pretend that I do. I think she is a horrible person for many reasons, it's also why she has very few friends - like maybe two and she gossips about those two friends and says horrible things about them which I never want to hear. I have told her...
