I’m 16 and I’m on my summer holidays and my mother has a go at me for not getting a job and she compares me to other people and I don’t ever think I’ll think be comfortable with myself when she’s around it’s literally everyday idk what to do

Sometimes relationships with people can be abusive and hurtful especially if it's family because there is often no escape.
For me it's a major problem but I've learned to cope and ignore it.
Obviously that isn't the best solution but I've done it for just about 18 years and im off to uni.

Thats just my 2 cents.

My mother is exactly the same unfortunately there isn’t much escape with immediate family. I had to get a job for Easter holidays! Just grit your teeth and ignore it because there not much else u can do.

Sometimes they're only looking out for you and its for your benefit
I know its annoying but do you feel like you should be getting a job now?

Then explain that or justify why you shouldn't have a job now so she doesn't comment on it
