Unhappy My Grandma is convinced I don't love her - February 19th 2009, 02:34 AM

Here's the thing: I harbor a LOT of resentment towards her because she has a talent for making my father very upset, and he is the most important person in the world to me. She is also massively annoying, interrupts me while i'm talking to people and is pretty much a complete asshole. I don't like it when she goes places with me and my dad because she just ruins everything. Me and him can't talk at all when she's around. I guess she's kind of right about me not loving her, but I wish she wouldn't start crying over it. I've tried discussing my actions with her, but she just doesn't listen to anything I say and keeps repeating, "YOU'RE HATEFUL! YOU'RE EVIL!" over and over again. I truly wish I didn't have to deal with her being over-emotional.

I'm currently living with her and my dad.

I've tried telling her that she makes my dad upset, and she responds that I make him upset more than she does. She thrives on family drama.

How do I make her less over-emotional about my actions? Or, how do I find her less awful?

... Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Hi Annabel Lee,

This sounds pretty difficult. I have a similar situation with my own grandmother, except she doesn't live with my family.

Unfortunately, I don't think that there's a way to make her less over-emotional. She may be frustrating, but natures are difficult to change, especially when the person has grown into them.

I think it would be a good idea to talk about this with your dad. It sounds like you've done what you could talking to your grandmother. Find out exactly what your dad thinks about the situation and see if he would be able to talk to her. She may listen if it's your dad who is saying it to her. Or you could just plan some time alone with your dad. Have some 'father/daughter' time. Just explain to your grandmother that you would like to spend some time with just you and your dad. Have your dad there too to support you.

I think it's important that you don't get farther apart from your dad because of this. Keep him close and keep talking to him when you can. Set some time aside for just you and him and then the time with your grandmother will probably become more bearable.

I really hope this works out for you.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

you can spend little time with her and talking with her lovable and social things. then she realise her son love her. you can trying the best for her. if she emotional then dn't tell her any sad news.
