    Not Living It Up

    I've come to realise the damage is unrepairable.

    She is who she is now. A narcissist can't be changed. I only make her worse than she is being who I am.

    If I had the money and acceptance,

    I'd be a goth prince(ess) Sadly, I don't have money...or acceptance. I don't think i'll ever really get to express myself because of her. Ugh. Oh well, maybe someday!

    Adivce On A Corrupted Mother-daughter Relationship

    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 mother was always there

    for me financially growing up, but now since I'm on my own and she doesn't financially support me anymore I want the love she never gave me, but sadly she can't offer that.

    Our relationship is so toxic.

    I don't think she sees that we Both contribute to it. She thinks she's a bad mom, but not for the right reason. I want us to have a better relationship... but there's a big part of me that doesn't even want to try. I don't really know why. Part of it's likely laziness. The I'm...

    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...

    It's Too Late Now

    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 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...

    Yeah well, I've probably messed

    that up beyond repair. I'm such an idiot. I've just treated her like trash and hurt her and I wish I wouldn't of and now I'm afraid that all of my past mistakes (and present ones) have me lost her for good. And if that's true then I only have myself to blame 😔

    Excuses For My Out-of-control Temper

    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...

    My mom shows very little affection towards me.

    I've always tried to ignore it but it wouldn't hurt to hear the words "I love you" with meaning once in awhile
