I Hate My Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,060 People

    Like seriously all she does is resent me.

    Like she had to feed me from birth... She spent all her time looking after me... Her career suffered because she took time off. You've always needed too much attention from your dad. You've always tried to get between us... You've always had a bad streak. You're just like my...

    I don't think I've hated her

    as much as I do at this point. She's NEVER shown me any sort of affection or love. She always judges me for every little thing I do. She's been abusing me(physically, emotionally, mentally) since I can remember. My dad passed away when I was 13 (I'm 21 now) and he and my mom...

    Just a few minutes ago my mother came into my

    room and started talking about my college funds. And how I'd have to get a job (I'm 14) to save up for my college. I agreed that when I was legally able maybe I could get a job to help. She left and then a few minutes later she came back complaining about how she had to save up...

    my mother. She's just a *****. About 80% of my problems started with her and I'm finally starting to claw my way out of this hole she crushed me into. I came to this realisation the other day that she might be a terrible person when I had a particularly bad outbreak of OCD, and...

    my mother has always been too wrapped up in her

    depression to be a mom. she didn't get anything she wanted out of life and now she takes it out on me. I don't care if she's unhappy anymore. I think she's weak and mean and horrible. she deserves the life she has.

    It's not that I really hate my mom.

    But over the years she has done a lot of things to deserve my disdain and even hatred. To be fair my mom didn't have life all that easy. She grew up badly and I suspect her of having autism. And I have done things to upset her as well. But still she won't recognise the fact that...

    until I turned 18. My mother (I refuse to user the term Mum, for that indicates a person who is loving and caring) knew what he was like, but chose to ignore it. He had abused several other relatives so she would have known what he was doing. I went through counselling and...

    I think it is ok to cut your mother off

    if she is abusive or nasty. Even if you are of her blood, it only makes her meanness or abuse toward you even more awful. I think a lot of bad mothers choose to treat their children badly because it is a convenient and easy way for them to express their negative personality...

    38 Years of Bull Sh*t
