    If Only The World Wouldn't Remind Me.

    I hate Mother's day because I hate my mom. And there's no way she could feel anything but hate towards me either, after the way she's treated me. I hate having to even think about her, it hurts too much. Sometimes I wish she had suceeded in killing herself 15 years ago, and 2...

    My mother was not abusive

    but neglectful, emotionally absent & unavailable. In my younger years, this made me distraught, especially when I needed her more. As I got older, I learned to disregard her absence, and in secret turned my feelings to anger. Eventually I came to the point where I pitied her...

    It's Not Because I'm Childfree....

    i don't have children so of course people assume that since i don't have children i wish misery on all of the mothers on the planet.  it's not even remotely like that. my mom (who a) has asperger's and b) almost let me die when i was 14, among other disasters) was very...

    Today is Mother's Day.

    I am a stay at home mom of 3 little boys. Mother's Day means nothing in our house because my husband says I'm not his mother. It hurts my feelings so bad. Everyone constantly posts on Facebook all the wonderful gifts and surprises their husbands are doing for them. Me? I'm up...

    My mom has never loved me.

    I don't hate her but I hate this day because I don't like being reminded of a relationship that we'll never have. There's no reason to celebrate her. I can't wait for this day to be over.

    Its hard to deal with Mother's Day.

    I had the chance to have kids. My husband can not father kids and he was against adoption. I hate hearing everyone say happy Mother's Day to every female. It drives a stake thru my heart

    This is probably the worst day of the year

    for me. I do not have my children because my daughter rejected me after her father moved his new girlfriend, (she has a new mommy now), my son travels the world serving God, HE is number one and I am basically an ATM machine to fund his travels. My mother committed suicide in...

    My mom was a good mom,

    at least she tried really hard to be. Sometimes she worked two jobs to be able to provide for us. She always tried to create happy memories at Christmas and birthdays, and all. But my mom had an idea of success, and when we didn't fill that roll, she discretely reminded us. In...

    As long as I can remember,

    my mom and I have not gotten along. I never liked her; I saw her as strange and for years I couldn't put an finger on it. I wanted her desperately. I longed for my mommy but the mother I wanted was not to be found. I felt like there was this shell of a person living with me who...

    She Was A Heartless Monster

    The person who was a human incubator and the same DNA has been deceased for 25 years, but the memories linger; I was physically and emotionally abused with no mercy.  The day she died was the day her rein of terror was over, thank the good lord.  May you rot in hell, mommie...

    I only hate Mother's Day

    because I am unable to have children and my only child (my dog of 15 years) just died a month ago. My husband has three kids two are adults and one is 6. The two adults did get me a card and that's very nice. I just feel guilty because I hope they don't do this out of...

    It Hurts

    I don't know if it's that i actually hate Mothers day.  It just hurts. I had my son for 3 weeks and I tried to be the best mommy I could. He was in NICU the whole time because he was born very premature and it hurts so much that I was never able to hold him...

    This was the first Mother's Day I've had

    without my mom. It's been 4 months since she died. I originally had the day off but I knew I would end up spending it depressed and crying all day, so I jumped at the chance to switch shifts with someone so I could work and keep my mind off her. I guess it wasn't such a good...
