    Never Put My Finger On This

    Isn't the father supposed to be the one leaving to go to the bar because it's more important than their own children? Not my mom... She's cool at times, but mostly she calls me up to nitch for the stupidest **** sometimes -_-' It's all ****** when she gets a little tipsy...

    Its Hard To Explain. She's Too Immature

    I wasn't raised by my mother, not beyond my first few years of life at least. My father and grandmother were the ones that raised me, and I'm glad they fought to get me. I loved going to see my mom as a kid, I thought she was the coolest. We should stay up late watching TV and...

    I Love My Mom But I Am Trying To Learn How To Like Her

    I know I love my mom but I have recently come to rediscover that I do not like her. When I was little I was always closer to her than to my dad but he abandoned us and she was all I had as a parent. So it became reverse in my mind. I thought I was closer to her and more distant...

    Can't Wait To Leave.

    I feel bad for saying I don't like her, but I really don't. She's lazy, she always makes me clean the house entirely by myself. She doesn't know how to manage her money and counts on ME to pay her weekly. She shelters me (and my brother) way too much. I mean, I'm 20 years old and...

    Guilt I Feel For Not Liking My Mom

    It is so hard dealing with my mom.  I moved out when I was 17, have raised 3 sons mainly as a single mother, and am now my mothers caretaker.  My mom is not a bad person and actually gave me a decent life.  I think she had her hands full dealing with my 4 older brothers and...

    She lived with us for eight months

    and moved out while we were on vacation. Now that she isn't here, she doesn't call me or answer my calls. I am the forgotten child.

    Love My Mother But Don't Like Her

    That's it, a genuine statement from within your truth. I like it. It's great to be able to distinguish liking from loving.

    My Dad Is The One I Have The Problem With

    I guess that I really let my dad down. I spent most of my life trying to be the best son he could ever want, while inside I knew I was a girl. I tried to make the feminin side of me go away, by being as tough, and macho as I could, but it never went away. So in 1995 I started...

    My mother has a lot of narcissistic attributes.

    I have done everything in life trying not to be like her. She is cold, manipulative, emotionally abusive and growing up physically. The only time she is nice which is fake is when she wants something or trying to get information so she can spread rumors around. One of my...

    As the title states I love and respect my Mother as she has the right to my love as my Mother. She "was" a very strong and loving Mother growing up until I became a young teen or so. She always pushed herself to work and provide as much as she could. She and I never had too...

    Why Is She So Miserable And Why Does She Want Everyone Else To Be Also

    My mother is fubar beyond belief. She has always been a control freak. Growing up you think your parents are normal and everyone else is like them. Then you go out on your own and realize how screwed up your folks are. All the time growing up you watch and think you are learning...

    My mother doesn't respect my opinion,

    and takes everything I say as an attack. She spends all her time drinking with her ******* friend who has no respect for anyone including me, but gets mad when I tell her I don't want to be around him. I can't stand the way she treats other people and if I wasn't her son I...

    I have the best mother one could ever hope for.

    My mom was always there for me and extremely supportive. Without her, I would not be where I am today, would not have succeeded in school, at my profession, probably life in general. She taught me to not give up, to be caring, to accept others as they are. All that, yet I don't...

    I really want the best in life for my mother.  She was raised in the 40's and 50's in an extremely religious family (church 3 times a week, no school dances - I can't imagine missing those in the 50's!)   Her father was very strict and distant (hard to imagine my...

    I've Lost My Respect For Her

    I love her for the sacrifices she made for me, for the love she showered me with when I was a child and for the hard work she put into raising me. I don't like her for the emotional abuse she's put me through, for the heartless words she'd spoken to me when she gets angry, for...

    My mother had always wanted a daughter, and she got her wish when I was born. I was pretty much a living doll for her to dress up and show off. I soon learned I wasn't what she wanted. She wanted a prissy, dainty, gorgeous girl. I wasn't a tomboy, but I was artistic, loud...

    I love terms of endearment when used by people who are being genuine. But when someone just uses it online when they don't know who I am I find it to be fake and meaningless.
