    We get on generally, or so I thought, but then my mum comes out with a comment from nowhere that changes everything.

    For instance, she just offered me a concilliatory remark (for a comment that even she realised was so far past the mark it was ridiculuosly painful, and considering she has told me getting pregnant with me was the worst thing that could ever happened to her, this is pretty impressive). It was as follows: maybe you're a good person when you are not around me, possibly. Or you may have changed a lot in the past year and I just don't see it.

    I have volunteered abroad, worked for chariteesand generally fundraised. I don't smoke and have stayed a virgin because I don't believe in sex before love. I am not perfect or anything, I can't say I have never lied (like reasons I was off sick type thing) but I can say that I have never consciously hurt another person.

    But guess what. It doesn't count because I am not a Christian.

    Tonight she made me feel actually disgusted with myself. /thread hijack

    You know you're the best person you can be, and you should be proud of yourself If she can't appreciate what a lucky mum she is, then pooh to her: she's the one who has some serious problems. Keep on being yourself, and don't let her get you down too much - if you still live with her, I'd say get the hell out as soon as you can: it's your life, and you don't need people like that bringing you down :console:
