I Can't Win With My Mom

She has her moments of being fun to be around, but she takes things to seriously. Like recently she walked past me and tickled me so I ran and tickled her back and we were joking around and then she started getting really pissed off and aggressive and saying that it's my fault. If she doesn't want to get picked on she shouldn't pick on me. She also is very negative about everything. She never wants to give anything a chance. I just really wish I could get along with her. Some of my friends have the best relationships with their moms and I'm jealous of it. I wish I could have my mom as a friend as well as a mother. It seems impossible for us to get along. I know it's not just her either but she needs to loosin up a bit. I don't know what to do on my part. I know I can't change her but if there is something that I can do for myself I need to know it.

I feel the same way you do. My mother and I can only get along when other people are looking in. We cannot spend 15 minutes in the same room together alone without her criticizing me and when I stand up for myself, she says she hates me and we do not talk for days. She pulls my sister in and she as well will not talk to me because my mother needs the attention. The only thing you can do is always be there for her if she needs you. But take care of yourself and grow in other relationships. Become closer to God and try and get your life straight and feel good about yourself :)
