My Mother. - April 21st 2009, 04:50 AM

I think this is in the right section, its about family. I dont know what to do anymore, my mother treats me like a piece of crap. She is always telling me im fat and im ugly and she screams at me for stupid things. We havent talked to each other without fighting in 10 years, and im 16. I cry myself to sleep every night because she tells me im worthless and stupid. And she is always drinking and doing drugs. I hate it at home, I want to move out so badly. I feel like its my fault that she hates me, she loves my brother and never yells at him. And she always tells him how handsome he is and how amazing at everything he is. I dont know what I did to deserve this. I should just get out of her life and everyone elses lives, it would make them so much happier. Idk what to do.

Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

Always? Always.

Hi KP,

You have every right to be upset about this, and I'm glad you're coming here to talk about it.

You didn't do anything to deserve how your mother is treating you. Nothing at all. If there is anyone with a problem here, it is your mother, so don't for a second let what she is saying get to you. You are a wonderful, kind, and beautiful person, and your mom isn't treating you properly at all.

Sometimes people get stressed out and take their angers out on other people. It's not a good thing, but it happens. Your mom might be really stressed out and might be saying these things to make herself feel better. Or maybe she's jealous of you. She could resent not having the life you have.

Either way, she's not creating a positive environment for you, and what she's saying would get anyone down. Having someone that emotionally abusive around doesn't help at all, and you deserve to feel good about yourself!

What I would suggest is to talk to a school counselor about it and get their opinion of what steps to take next. I think right now you have two options, you can bear through it and do your best to ignore what she's saying to you, or you can look into finding another place to stay. Maybe there's a relative that would be willing to take you in, or a foster home.

Stay strong, no matter what you do. You're a good person
If you want to talk some more, just let me know.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

you know you're old enough to move out. you shouldn't take your mother's crap anymore, so you can get a...oh what do they call it? basically you can divorce yourself from your mother and go live on your own. i suggest doing some research on what is considered child abuse and/or neglect and see if your mother fits any of these catagories. good luck!

I really want to find a different place to stay but im really scared to. Im afraid they are going to come after me, and if it was taken to court my mom would deny everything and get really upset about it and I would have to stay at home and it would make things even worse. so im really confused about everything right now

Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

Always? Always.
