    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...

    My Mom and Her Battle

    I miss my mother terribly. She tried as hard as she could to raise us but it was extremely hard for her to get over her past. (she had a horrible child hood) She took allot of it out on us. She hasn't seen any of her grandchildren in months and we live in the same town. She is...

    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...

    I Am Not Talking to My Mother

    My mom had a terrible childhood growing up.  She was the 3rd daughter and felt unwanted her entire life.  I am her only child and she abused me my entire life.  If things weren't her way, she would get nasty and very angry. My dad and I ignored her for so many...

    I Wish I Too, Had A Better Relationship With My Mother

    I could go on and on about my growing up with an abuse parent. I was born five years after my sister died. My mother gave me the same name…so every time she said my name she was always refereeing to her dead child. Five years later my brother was born. Needless to say, he...

    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...

    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...

    The Mom Who Cried Wolf

    I can't count the times I have tried to have a better relationship with my mother but no matter what it's just not worked. I want her to love me,care for me and want me and not just speak to me when she needs something. I've realized recently when I got to my early 20's that the...
