    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 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 see people who make posts about how much they

    love their mom and that their mom is always there for them and understands them but sadly at times that is not the case for me. I do love my mom but at times I just really hate her... I suffer from depression and everytime I tell her about it she just tells me to think positive...

    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...

    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...

    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...
