    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
