My mom and friends... - July 20th 2011, 06:04 PM

I have a thread all about ranting about my mom, but I decided I would get mor replies here for this particular question.

To make it simple my mom hates friends. She says "They only slow you down" and they "Are never there when you need them." and "Friends are a waste of time"

Today a friend from out of town is in town. He's too polite to invite himself over, so I asked my mother if he could. Her answer "Your friends could phone if they wanted to come over. Friends suck."

Everytime I see someone I know on facebook "Like" "Friends are like family you get to choose" I die a little bit. I cannot imagine being that close to someone because I never see any "Friends" very often, and I often feel like they are just people I talk to online.

I mean it's not like I go to school (Or have the choice to) I'm homeschooled and cannot see kids regularly, and my mother refuses to drive me anywhere or even leave people come here if they get their own ride.

Anyone I make friends with she doesn't approve of anyway. I had two friends who's parents were divorced. They were "Freaks". One kid's dad had a government job in the police force he wasn't allowed to talk about. He was "Weird". I have a friend who visits his grandmother every summer (The one who normally lives out of town) (He did have issues with his mother because she had to leave him at his grandmother for two years so she could get a job and house) and claimed he was "Trouble". I had a friend who lived in a regular neighbourhood with regular friends and was totally normal. My mom said he was "Boring".

She claims "If you want friends, find some who will phone you for a change." and pretty much just said "No."

Should I keep asking and trying to reason? Are friends just a waste of time?

That's really odd that your mom is like that. Have you talked to her and asked her why she thinks of friends that way? Maybe it could be because she had a bad experience with some friends at some point and doesn't want you to get hurt.

Sing.Bake.Repeat: Who hasn't had a bad experience with friends? I know in highschool some people she thought were her friends were mean to her.

Other than that I don't get her reasoning. To be hoenst I feel that all her complaints are bigotry rather than some real reason.
