Do (or did) you get along well with your mother?
My mom is a mentally ill alcoholic last week she left a message on my voice mail saying she was going to kill herself then she called the cops on herself and went to the hospital for a week and this is her normal so no I don't like my mom
My mother revealed to me that she smoked pot- and we have smoked together, which instantly broke out mother-daughter bond. Now I simply can't respect her at all due to constant hypocrisy... Shes also a typical German, as am i so we butt heads frequently. Still, I could NEVER hate my mother.
What's that supposed to mean?
I don't think I will ever get along with my mom. I hold too much resentment towards her and I don't respect her. I feel bad ab it but she's let me down too many times to keep caring. I wish I had an awesome relationship with my mom but I guess it wasn't in the cards! Oh well!
give her a chance. though it might not be her 'plan' for you to be gay, you're still her kid. let her know that seeing how strong of a mom she is has given you strength to be honest with her. good luck!!!!
My mom was the complete opposite of my dad. He is a Tea Party "Republican" and my mom was a Liberal Democrat. She died 4 years ago of ALS, and I miss her every day. She was a vibrant, strong, religious woman..She got me to love Hollywood musicals and movies in general.
Recently stopped talking to my mom. I wish it didn't have to be this way :(
Thx Annie. Narcissistic traits are definitely a core element of BPD, so I'll check out that book. Appreciate the referral.
I know I'm a complete b**** to her sometimes. And I hate myself for it. Even though we argue, I always know she's right. I'm young, stupid, and have no clue what I'm talking about. She gives me so much and I treat her like crap. She's still there for me and loves me. I have the best mom ever.
That would make sense but i can understand how many dont get alone but grow up fine
Not really she doted on my brother. He even felt bad for her obvious preference. When I had my own children I felt bad for all she missed out on not enjoying her daughter.
Ultimately, Mom did the best she could with what she had. Was it the best? Nope. Was it the worst? No. We get along because I've matured, and I have realized that the past doesn't really matter anymore. Very freeing.
My mom and I extremely close. Love her so much<3
Read the book "A Child Called It".
She died but she still 'has' an alcohol problem?
I'm so sorry you had to go through that. It's not your fault she made bad decisions!
Between the two, I got along with my mother the least, but I'd say for the majority of the time, we got along.
Sounds like my mom. Too overbearing and protective.
I have the best mom in the world!
As a spoiled teenager who thought I knew everything about everything, my mom and I butt heads a lot. Now that I am grown, we see each other a bit differently. We are like best friends now. Wish we would've been this close when I was a kid.
I love my in-laws! Talk to them almost daily. My own mother has to be taken in doses.
No i think he's referring to the psychopath who killed his mom, then killed a bunch of kids at the school she worked at.
You think your moms a milf? You must have moved to oregon from the deep south huh?
We get along. She's a bit overbearing and paranoid about safety but she's my mom so I deal with it. Love that lady.
Best friends! MIL... Now thats a different story, ha!
Nope. My mother is an alcoholic child abuser and I don't need her in my life right now.
Thanks blue. The book I read (though it may not fit as many people's situations) Children of the Self-Absorbed. It focuses on how to deal with a narcissistic parent, though the methods in it fit with various personality disorders.
Now. But it took us until I turned 32 to have a good relationship.
Yes. She was a fantastic mom and my best friend. I miss her every single day but I know that she's making Heaven a better place by being there. Love you mom!
Yes I did, and I miss her very very much!
Love her more than anything! She has never smoked, cursed, or drank. She's my hero! Love you mommy!!!
I believe Pietsch is saying that only a psychopath wouldn't get along with his/her mother. Probably a fair statement, unless ma is the psychopath.
Ouch! What a hurtful thing to say.
I adore my mother. But if you're looking for any pity, walk the other direction! She's a tough cookie. And she works so hard to support my brother and I / it inspires me.
Love my mama! Under 5' and 100 lbs. soakin' wet. Heard her utter a curse word maybe twice, EVER. (Even then, she quickly caught and 'corrected' herself!) Has never put a cigarette to her lips. Have seen her consume alcohol (Wine/Champagne) maybe a half-dozen times. To me, she's rather Saintly!
We had a great relationship. Stay at home mom who Pretty much ran the house. Funny, easy to get along with and a great cook. Gone for some time now I still miss her.
Very good relationship with both parents. As parents go, they are AWESOME!
But you forget that not everybody has in-laws…
I had the greatest Mom in the world. A 4'10" giant! We were always close and talked everyday up to the day she died. An amazing, accomplished, happy, funny, fiercely protective and caring woman.
We hated eachother when I was a teen. Now we're good friends, but certainly not best friends.
How does that make u a psychopath?
Of course. I'm not a psychopath.
It depends on how you look at it. My grandparents adopted me. I usually get along with my grandma. My biological mother is a different story. If it weren't for my grandmother, I probably wouldn't see her much. Our personalities clash way too much.
I love her because she's my mother; but, I do not like or respect her or have anything to do with her.....My Mama (step-mother) is wonderful. I'd go to h*ll and back for her.
I am not as close to my mom as I used to be. She has a mental illness that took a serious turn for the worse when I moved out. I love her, and always will but it's kinda more like love from a distance. It has to be that way for me to keep my sanity.
Now if the question was "do you get along with your Mother In Law" the answer might be different......
