Have some respect! - February 26th 2009, 11:07 PM

My mother just walked out of the room while we were having a conversation, I mean, there was a pause between words. But she always pauses before making her self religious speeches.
But, to walk out AND THEN not even respond when I called her back. UGh, and she wanders why I don't respect her as much? Its things like that. She feels she can treat me how she wants to and still get the same amount of respect from me.
I don't know what to do anymore, I've talked to her about this, but she just ignores me and its really pissing me off.

"For is it not death nor dying that I fear. But lack of life and purpose."
Love what is mortal; hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, let it go.

Hey Dasha,

I think you should continue to talk to your mom about this. She needs to know that respect goes both ways. It's something you give to receive. It would be best to confront her about this when you are not in the middle of an argument. Make sure it's a time when her head is clear and she's not frustrated. That will make talking to her and getting her to listen much easier.

I'm not sure what else you could do other than talk to her. Just know that you should at least be civil to her. I understand that you don't feel you respect her right now, but you should at least try to be civil to each other. Again, respect does go both ways. But being civil isn't the same as being respectful. She is your mother and she does deserve you at least talking to her.

I hope this goes better between you two.


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?
