    My mother had always spoiled me

    as a child in terms of toys, technology, and things I wanted. But my mother is very emotionally unstable. She has been diagnosed with depression and takes numerous pills a day. Don't get me wrong, I know that depression can't be controlled but if you were around my mom for a day...

    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...

    Same Here...

    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...

    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...

    Undercurrent

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    It's becoming harder for me to write these stories which is a good thing because I think I'm learning to cope with my anger (yay for therapy working!) Anyways, my mother has made mistakes with me and it's hard for me to forgive her. She cheated on my dad. Well, still cheats...

    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...

    She was a wonderful mother.

    I will not lie and say she mistreated me,though she had every right to. My birth came as a result of her rape by a White man(she's Korean) and I was little more than a chain around her ankle. She married my stepfather(also Korean) before I was 2 years old and had two additional...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
