Why Can't I Be Happy For My Mum - December 28th 2009, 05:10 PM

I went to university 3 months ago and since then my mum has been out and about, joining clubs and meeting new people, and I was really happy about that. I was worried she'd just be sat in on her own (she's divorced and I'm a lonely child.) But now she's got a new boyfriend who she doesn't stop talking about.

I've come home for Christmas and this new guy is practially living here, he's taking us out for meals and coming over for tea, my mum thinks he's brilliant.

But I just feel weird about it all ... I've come back from uni to find a complete stranger practically living in my house ... the first thing my mum said when I got back is "Me and Mick won't be able to have the nice big blanket on the bed now, because you need it for yours." I guess I feel ... unwanted? In the way? I dunno, I guess I'm used to having my mum all to myself. I feel bad for that.

I wish I could be happier about all this. I want to be happy for her, but my house doesn't feel like my home anymore ... a stranger living here, my room is different, we go out everwhere with this guy and I feel like I can't stay at home and chill anymore, I feel like I'm being told what to do and that I have to worship this guy like my mum does ... I wanna be happy for her, because she IS happy ... but why can't I?

Sometimes it's better to forget how you feel
and remember what you deserve

S. M ... still in my heart, forever

you miss being on your own with your mom.
maybe you can get some alone time with her.

Also you shouldnt feel like you have to be with them when they plan things, let them be, if you feel like sitting at home, just do that!!

i think if you hinted to your mom that you wanted some time with her, not because you dislike 'Mick' or because you are jealous, but because you miss her, i think she would understand.

Good luck!

The Darker the NIGHT,
The brighter the dawn.
The longer the darkness lingers,
The more beautiful the light will come.

Try talking to her and tell her how you feel just as you have told us here.
