    It's Too Late Now

    I never really knew who my mom was. We lived in a fairly nice house with a big yard in virginia, and when it snowed, we could go skiing down the hill in my yard. When i was little, my mom and dad had pretty intense fights all the time that got violent sometimes. my dad was the...

    I Wish I Could Have An Actual Relationship With My Mom

    I wish that my mom would accept me for who I am. I'm not a bad person, and other people seem to like me, but she never has. I'm never what she wanted me to be I guess . my whole life she has always pointed out my flaws any chance she gets and has told me multiple times that she's...

    I Wish I Had A Relationship With My Mom

    Ever since I was a child I feel like my mother has been waiting for me to mess up. For me to make a mistake so she can yell and scream. My mom had me when she was 16 and had my brother four years later. From then on I always felt like the black sheep. She forced me to do things...

    The Good, the Bad and the I Yi Yi ...

    Today while walking, I had a sort of flashback to one night when my mom and I sat in my room listening to a bunch of Depeche Mode songs (still my favorite band). I think I was 15 or a bit younger. She was curious - not the kind of curious in a mom way but the musician in her was...

    Excuses For My Out-of-control Temper

    I guess for me, mom will always be there. So I tend to blow up at her for no good reason ....Simply because I can do it, and she will still love me, regardless. I feel it is an awful thing that I do, but sometimes I can't control it. (Deep inside, I know this is an excuse...
