I Wish My Mum Would Make Up Her Mind - December 29th 2009, 04:01 PM

My mum and me have always had a rocky relationship. My sister was the one who she preferred, and I was the one she took her anger out on. Okay, that might be a bit harsh, but it seemed that way.

My sister started University last year, and when she was away me and my mum got along just fine. However, as soon as my sister got home my mum started arguing with me over everything, and making mountains out of metaphorical molehills. Everything I did would be wrong. If I was on the PC I'd be "addicted to the internet", if I made an effort to be with my family I'd be "merely placating them" or "loitering". You get the idea.

The year before, when I told my parents that I was depressed nearly to the point of being suicidal, my mum actually shouted at me for being self-centred and thoughtless.

I'd like to think that I wouldn't mind this so much if it was consistent, but what really hurts is this:

After this happens, my mum always tells me she's sorry, and that it won't happen again, etc. And then the cycle repeats.

I feel really stupid for even posting this, because there are people out there who have problems so much bigger than mine, and thinking that makes me hate myself even more than before. I can just feel the bleak, oppressive fog of depression lowering over my mind already...

We all need some extra self confidence... so...

Don't feel stupid for any reason. Just because your problem isn't the same as another person's doesn't mean its not a problem. Talk to your mom and tell her what you told us here. If she continues to act this way, go on with your life and don't let such things get to you emotionally. Ignore them and go on with your life.
