I Love My Mom, But

Mothers can be aggravating, annoying, & well Mothering.... What do they do to annoy you? Share & Be Heard 337 People

    My mother and father cared about money a lot.

    They were always very stingy about it and while they could feed us, we were poorly fed. I became very weak and I did not know better Nutrition. Further and further, I fell into depression until it was endless. I was sick all the time, as well, but my mom said it was all in my...

    I don't remember my mother ever being a

    receptive of approachable presence. I've always envied relationships where the mom and daughter were as close as best friends. They would go shopping together and text each other all day. As far as my relationship with my mother goes; it's basically obsolete. As I flourished...

    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...

    I hate her for criticizing me instead of

    encouraging me and making me feel better. Sometimes it's depressing. 😒 she never cared that much for me.

    She blabs everything I say to everyone we know.

    I know she means well, but I've stopped confiding in her - I know whatever I say will be repeated ten minutes later to my siblings, and my grandma, and Mom's neighbors, and it'll be brought up in church and added to the prayer list in the bulletin... I love my mother so much...

    My Dear Mother

    I love my mom, but she never stood up for me. She didn't do anything about it when my babysitter's son molested me and she didn't do anything about it when the neighbor touched me inappropriately because she didn't want to hurt his wife's feelings. I guess his wife's feelings...

    An Incredible Woman

    She has a bleeding heart for the suffering of the innocent and an open-mind. She is extremely generous and adores the ground my daughter walks on. I love her very much,however! She drives me crazy with her lack of understanding and under-estimating me.

    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?
