My mum never understands me! Anyone else?

    • Thread Starter

    I live alone with my mum and not a month has gone by where we don't argue. She tells me that she feels like we're growing a part and that I can be so cold towards her even though I'm always the one starting conversations. I talk to her about my writing but she calls my ideas 'stupid' I talk to her about my music which she doesn't hesitate to tell me she hates. I started watching Once upon a time with her which she now finds boring. I can never win with her! She has also called me many mean words in the past 'stupid, little ungrateful *****' being one of the many phrases. She tells everyone that I do nothing all day (which isn't true) and when I get upset she gets really angry! When i try to explain I'm not being rude to her she says i'm answering back and that she doesn't like my tone! It's almost like she loves to see me cry! When I try and hold back the tears she keeps pushing and pushing with the mean phrases like 'my family hates me' until I am crying. I don't know what to do and I'm too young to move out yet. It's sooooo frustrating!

    Anyone feel the same way?
