Go Out And Live!My mother and I have issues. I love her because she is my mother and she does have redeeming qualities, but for the most part she annoys me and embarrasses me and she is very self-absorbed. It's not easy for me to spend time with her, and lately that's all she wants to do! She calls or texts me daily, suggesting we go out together. Sometimes I accept her offers, but it always ends in us arguing or me spending money I don't really have on her. She can be quite the manipulator.
Anyway, yes, I wish she had a life. Friends. Maybe a boyfriend. Hobbies. Something to occupy her time with people who love her company. She isn't a horrible person, though she has done horrible things in the past. She and I just aren't compatible. I wish it could be different but it can't- I'm introverted and bookish like my father, and she is loud and social. We just clash at every turn.
