Mother.. Need I say more. - September 22nd 2010, 08:28 AM

I just need to vent. if you have any tips on how to build confidence after your mother has shot you down your whole life, please feel free to comment.

I seriously could slap my mother (I call her that because anyone can give birth, but it takes balls so to speak to make a mum) I get my confidence up even slightly, and she shoots it down again. Makes it hard to go anywhere in life.

She has beaten me, abused me mentally, kicked me out of home countless times, although I was stupid enough to go back there, Told me I will fail because she has, she hates my boyfriend for no reason, despises everything I do, and anyone I get close to, and her most recent is accusing me of stealing someone else's lyrics for my band!

I have tried to be nice, I've tried to get along, but she just doesn't want to make an effort. I give up on her, and my family. I personally think cutting contact with them and getting on with my life would be the best thing to do.

I have no idea how I'm meant to get my confidence back after 18 years of having it shot down. but I guess I will have to make do - like every other thing I've had to do on my own, and there is a lot of them!

Same with me. I could hit my mom. Say lots of shit, She knows there is problems between us. But she denies it when we try to talk she just goes " Go fuck yourself " Im always the one that is diffrent because of her .. No shit really. Because of her my life is hard. If i compare her with some other dudes mom's .. They are currently in heaven. I feel you.

Man!!!! I. Was just about to post nearly yhe SAME EXACT thing!!! Every fucking day my mom calls me on my cellphone to tell me what I've done wrong. No joke. She says " I just want ypou to realize everything you do wrong"....I'm like are u fucking serious????? She's calling me to lower my self esteem basically.... Last night she called me a stupid bitch good for nothing....why? Because I knocked over a glass of iced tea. I said "I didn't do it on purpose...." And she said that I always have an excuse for something. My advice is to list good things about yourself.. Self talk... Do things for YOU don't try to do things to impress or make her happy she will neverappreciate it. She will just look for new things to complain about. Trust YOU, love YOU

Hey, sorry to hear your mothers aren't fantastic either, but if you do need to rant, feel free to do so ae. I dont know about you, but it makes me feel better to vent frustration.
