    I've just had a massive fight with my mum - we fight regularly but it's left both of us really upset. Recently broke up with boyfriend after four years and my closest friends have all gone away for gap years so I can't contact any of them. I have nobody when I had everything. I don't know whether to just break down my barriers or to stay strong when I've kinda always been the person who doesn't care. I'm so confused. Please, any advice?

    Talk about it with your mum try and get to the bottom of the reason as to why you are fighting and work it out from there. Maybe show your mum how you are feeling and see if you can talk to her about how you are feeling, its alot to hold in by your own.

    Communication is the best thing, take the lead and go and apologise to your mum and have a chat.

    Go see her, say sorry, it's probably the best thing you can do.
    Go for a big hug, make her a drink, and then ask if you can talk about how you're feeling...
    Parents love you regardless of how horrible the fight is :jumphug:

    Take some time out.. Give your mum some space.. When you feel ready and when she feels ready you guys can hopefully resolve this.

    I'm so sorry that you've found yourself in this position OP, I've been there enough times to know how much it hurts. :console:
    I'd go with what everyone else is saying - go and have a go at making up with your mum. She must understand that we all need people sometimes, and regardless of your argument I think she'd be there for you.
    Also, could you email any of your friends who are out of the country?
    How about your ex too, are you still friends? If so you could just have a chat with him, just explain that you could use a shoulder.
    You're more than welcome to PM me, but I know that PMs don't replace real friends and support! Hugs though. :console: Good luck and look after yourself x
