    I hate her for criticizing me instead of

    Well.. I probably won't be on today

    or tomorrow.. My mom is telling me I HAVE to go to something at a school that has to do with my nephew, I told her I'm not going and she keeps telling me that I'm either going or I'm going to lose my phone. I'm not going. And she can't make me, so I'm probably going to lose...

    I Love You But You Are Making Some Really Stupid Decisions...

         I want to start off by saying that I love my mom. She is an amazing woman. At this point in time she is making some really bad decisions right now that are having a really bad effect on me. she believes that she is free to go out to bars and sleep with other men. This is...

    ...I've been having this thought a lot lately

    but I sometimes wish my mom wasn't my mom. I love her with all my heart but she feels more like a distant relative instead of my mother. She doesn't talk to me. Because of that I don't talk to her. Whenever I'm going through something I try to talk to her but she just doesn't...

    she doesn't love me - she

    once said "I am your mother so I'll always love you... but I do not like you" - broke my heart in two & I never quite recovered from that

    She complains and complains

    and complains some more. She complains that "nobody helps her" which is a lie. Why would we help her when she's always doing it herself? And then when we offer she tells is not to. Contradicting herself 😒 And then she tells us to stop using dishes and eating so much , so we...

    My mother has a very lighthearted way of giving

    advice. It might be the result of raising four boys (mainly on her own after my dad died) so she often talks to us like a pal. I know she means well, but it sounds funny coming from her. Lately, after I bummed up my knee, on the same leg as my bum ankle, her advice to me, was...

    I wish my mom actually cared about me.

    All she does is yell at me and criticize me. I try talking to her and she ignores me. Tells me I'm slow. Tells me I'm stupid (not those words but definitely implies it). Doesn't show any interest in what I want to do with my life, only what SHE wants for me. I'm so sick of...

    Is it unladylike to hang out in a local

    downtown coffee shop? My mother says that it is after I told her I met a very nice person there and spent a few hours downtown. She equated it to a barfly and said it was inappropriate. This is old-fashioned thinking, I believe, but maybe she is right?

    She keeps talking about me behind my back.

    I just found out she's been doing it again - she gossiped about me to my aunt and uncle. Now I'm planning to skip Thanksgiving dinner; I'm horrified she shared my personal business again. I'm so sad to miss the holiday meal - it's my favorite holiday of the year.
