Stupid, STUPID people - May 25th 2009, 05:55 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

This is mainly a rant. If you think youíre stupid, please donít read. The prefix is there for a reason.

I have always been rather intelligent. I feel proud that I'm cleverer than most. Something that really irks me is that no one can challenge my intellect. But I've learned to be content with not wanting to live, so I get by.

However.

My mother is the stupidest persun I have ever met. I mean, ever. I don't know how I managed to absorb the proper genetics from my father on that one, but I'm thankful. Worse still, she's loud and aggressive so she makes stupid remarks and orders me to do stupid things like the gelatinous, mindless fungus she is.

For example, if I suggest something that might lower our expenses, she yells. If I ask a question, she doesn't understand it and yells. I have seriously prayed for her death, that's how much I hate her persunality.

I'm fine with stupid people (mostly), so long as they recognize they're stupid and stay the fuck out of the way. WHY! are stupid people allowed to hold positions of power?

How the hell do I deal with her? Iíve tried standing up to her, alas it does not work. Usually my esteemed mother resorts to sophisticated measures like yelling, and if Iím lucky, physical violence. At least if she favors the latter, she stops trying to sound intelligible.

Iíve tried ignoring her, she just becomes a total bitch cunt twat stupid FUCK! And Iíve half-heartedly tried to obey her commands, all attempts ending in a smiley critic from my mother and me slitting my own wrists, just to escape my conscience telling me Iím being a push-over prat mother-fucking sellout.

Thank you, any help appreciated. For some reason, this was very hard to write. Iím in a rage, so if it doesnít make perfect sense, bite me and my apologies.

Hey there,
I'm glad you ranted. I know it's not always easy but it is helpful to get things out. And it did make sense--you were concise even though you were in a rage! Have you tried talking with your mom? It seems like ignoring her is one extreme and totally obeying her is another extreme. What about talking with her honestly, letting her know that you really want to stop upsetting her and ask her what you can do to make that happen? And/or letting her know that you feel as though whatever you do is wrong.

I'm not sure if this will end in an argument or not but it sounds like you are arguing so much anyway that it could be worth it? Again, I'm not sure, because I don't know the situation other than what you wrote but maybe talking with her would be an option. The other thing is, do you have another family member (sibling, aunt, uncle, cousin, grandparent, etc.) that you could talk to? Someone who knows your mom also might be able to give you some advice.

Hang in there, keep us posted, and write anytime, okay? Take good care of you-
Jen

Thank you for your post. I've calmed down, and though I did not last evening, I have tried talking to her....

As I have said, STUUUUUUUPED!

That's mean and it pains me to say that, but it's true. Being the sensitive twat I am, I try and phrase it nicely while she goes on and on and on and on and on and on about my flaws. Even in MY therapy sessions, in which all of these professionals seem to find appropriate. Carking dogs! that's nettlesome. I am intimately familiar with my own flaws, mother, go swallow some gasoline.

To wot, yes. Yes I have tried talking to her.

Oh, and another thing that bothers me, and perhaps some other people have this trouble too. Our generation is so rigidly controlled. Can't leave the house. Can't talk to certain kids because they come from troubled homes. Can't do anything I want unless it's on HER bloody schedule. But you notice...

WE'RE ALL EMOTIONALLY NEGLECTED! How could someone implement such a divine and freezing approach to child-rearing? Sorry, slightly angered again.

I know how you feel about having stupid parents... My dad is an alcoholic and he's pretty dumb... When he's drunk it's worse. He never has anything intelligent to say. When you ask him a simple question you can literally see the wheels turning in his head-- quite slowly I might add. However, this is not about me!

Unfortunatly, she is yourmom and you have to deal with them until with leave the nest...

I'm 100% sure that my post didn't help... But I tried...
