I Hate Criticism From My Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 122 People

    Even Though She's Never Mean...

    My mom very rarely criticises me, and when she does it's more of a gentle, loving correction than a harsh criticism. But it still upsets me because she's my best friend and basically my favorite person in the world, and I want to please her and impress her and make her proud of...

    Parental Criticism

    My Father died. My Mother still sees me as a helpless child and switches into 'advice mode' every time I see her. That makes me want to get away. Sensing my frustration, she suggests better ways of doing things. Most of these options are not relevant to the modern age because she...

    Because She Hates Men

    I feel like the only reason my mom was so critical of me was because I had external reproductive organs. I cannot really blame her. After all she was pumped and dumped. She was so robotic about it all. She hid behind grades. If I was not getting Bs I was failing. She never...

    I Feel Like

    That's she's ever really said to me. Oh sure you get the "good job"s and "that's great"s, but i never felt like she really appreciated anything I've ever done, made or said. I've never been one to ask for much. Even as a little girl I was money aware. I think its cause it was...

    I Can't Live Like It

    nothing is ever good enough, she is always negative about something, and i think it hurts more coming from her because she's the only one i need to impress, no matter what i do, she always expects more, and the more i do the more she'll want next time. she has so many...

    I Wish She'd Shut Up!

    I love my mom, but I'd love it if she shut up about this and that about my life. I know I'm not the perfect son, and I accept that. But I wish she could accept me for who I am, not what she wants me to be. Easier said than done though, since I'm from a traditional Chinese family...

    Worst Guilt Trip Ever

    There have been cases of swine flu in my country. I try to be responsible - dress according to weather, don't go near sick-looking people, drink a lot of warm fluids, keep good hygiene, etc, and my immunity is fine so that I believe common sense is good. I don't want to take the...

    Never enough.

     My mother is gorgeous, charming, and strong. I do admire her in many ways, ever since I was little, for I knew I had the most beautiful mother on the playground. Growing up I would see her walk into a room and have all whom it contains wrapped around her finger in a matter...

    Mother Dear

    Growing up, my mother constantly critiqued everything about me. When I would tell her that she was hurting my feelings, her reply was, "I'm your mother- who else is going to be honest with you?" Thanks, Mom. If that's honesty, I'll take a lie. Nothing I did was ever good...
