Why is my mom so crazy?? - January 7th 2009, 07:23 PM

Sometimes I highly doubt how I even am related to my mom. I mean we get along most of the time but we have such contrasting views
And this wouldn't be a problem if she wasn't so determined to make me believe the same things as her. Like she is a HUGE catholic and I'm not sure if it's the religion for me. I want to explore other christian demoninations. She is homophobic and I'm bicurious. She hates people being superficial and greedy and I'm one of the most self centered materialist person (I'm not just talking myself down. This is my bad trait that. I'm nice but eh...I care about myself a lot. Working on it though)

But more to the point. She always tries to change me to believe in her veiws. She hates that I'm so self absorbed and badgers me about it. And when I try to talk to her about my religion beliefs...she freaks out and says things like "WELL THIS FAMILY IS CATHOLIC" i.e. I'm catholic or I'm out of the clan. And no way am I going to even try to talk about my sexuality.

I might just be venting but really is there a way I can tell her that I'm fifteen and she can't think for me anymore?? Seriously. I just don't know how to say it. ugh

Compromise is not a sign of weakness. It is the strength to withstand caving to an ultimatum.
Living with one takes great strength

Well,sometimes parents know better and you are 15,you will understand when you grow up and for the religion thing,it's up to you to chose and no one can decide that for you.I am a muslim andin Islam,we don't try to influance people to convert into our religion but we always say this when someone come and want to covert to Islam "Are you sure you want to be a muslim???You take your time and think it over".But for your mom trying to change you and make you care more about others,that is good.You have a good mom and I wish I have parents that care me as much as your mom do.My mom is nice and I love her but she just don't know how to show her love to me so appriciate your mom when you still can

Love Is A 4 Alphabet Word So Don't Just Say It,Show It Too

I think it is great that you have your own views, but it is also great that your mom has her own views. You can't change your mom, and apparently she does not realize she can not really change you. The best thing I think you could do is to go to her and say mom I respect your views and I understand why you have them but I have my own views and I would really appreciate if you would support me in figureing out what is right for me. You have had time to figure out what is right for you, so now I am just trying to find out for myself.

It may or may not work but it seems like it is worth a try.
