    Recently I've found myself to be getting stressed by such silly things which I partly attibute to living at home where the atmosphere is so uptight. I love going round my friend's houses because they're parents are so chilled out, and they are able to discuss boyfriends, alcohol and almost anything with no embarrasment. When I'm out I should expect at least 10 missed called from my mum. When I get home there is almost always a big grilling about something or other.

    So, how chilled out are you? Your family? Do your parents stress about the silly things? Or could they not care less about rules and regulations?

    I'm probably one of the most chilled out people you'll ever meet. I'm calm in stressful situations, deal with tough decisions without getting stressed, chill other people out when things get on top of them etc etc... but my mum makes me want to put my head through a window

    She smashed plates and through sunday dinner in th bin just because I made gravy different to how she would do it.

    She lied to me and then had a screaming fit at me when I didn't stick up for her.

    She twists arguments, gossips about me to family and causes arguments between family members.

    When I need advice/a hug/info, she turns it round and makes out I'm stupid/a *****/pathetic.

    It's got to the point where I don't actually dare to be sitting down when she walks in from work, I switch my laptop off every time she comes near my room and I try to get out the house as much as possible because I know that if I don't she will lose it with me.

    So with my mum, no, I'm never EVER chilled out.

    I actually wanted to make a thread about this asking for advice but I can't think of anything I could do to help the situation so decided against it.

    Sorry if I hijacked a bit, just felt the need to explain...

    Lol same here!

    I just like to be spontaneous now and then but my mum just isn't....

    Even cooking a meal in the kitchen is accompanied by nagging and screaming and drama.

    I just want a free relaxed household!

    OMG exactly the same here. No joke, I am great around other people but she makes me so depressed. She is very pessimistic and moody and it is so hard to deal with her. I think your mum is depressed. Is she single or with your dad? My mum is down about lots of things, but then I know people who have been through much worse who remain positive and happy. Sometimes it feels like I am the mum, not her.

    Haha, my household has never been chilled. No one gets along and it's impossible to communicate without shouting and getting stressed. Completely dysfunctional.

    I pretty chilled out
    But my mum isn't - she just worries about me when I'm out (mainly just when I'm in town in the dancing - because of drunk men :P so to avoid her worrying and thus phoning/texting me many times :P: - I just need to text her every once in a while so she knows where I am and that I'm safe
    Which I don't mind tbh even though it's annoying It's nice that she care and if something ever did happen (hairy wood) at least that way she would know where I was beforehand

    Socially I'm very chilled; academically not. It's rather sad.
