Do you have a good relationship with your mother?

Growing up I have always felt my mom favored my brother over me. And even as a grown adult, I still feel that way.

  • I had a pretty good relationship with my mom growing up. We had the usual fight all teenage girls have with their moms, but all in all pretty good. After I moved out, got married and had kids we became more equals and I learned how hard it is to be a mom and grew to appreciate everything she had done for me and my sisters. Mom died 5 years ago tomorrow, and the only regret I have about our relationship is that I wish I had actually told her what she meant to me as a mom and a friend and what a positive role model and example she was. Ladies, if you have the chance to do that (and it applies) let your mom's know how loved they are, you'll never regret saying it, but you will regret not saying it.

  • No...I like my dad more than her and he was in my life sporadically....I felt like she chose my brother, sister, and her husband over me...she wasn't there for me after I got raped when I was 11 (she basically told me that it was my fault), we lived in different relatives' houses (most of the time, I was molested), we had problems keeping the utilities on (which is why we were in the relatives' houses)....she doesn't take care of herself or my brother (who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy)....he gets an SSI check every month but she needs someone to buy him a winter coat...she just makes me so angry....I just don't want anything to do with her, really...and I know it's unhealthy to have these ill feelings but I don't know what to do...

  • No, I have an awesome relationship with my Mom, I always have had that with her. To this day, when something good or bad happens, she is the first one I call. Theres nothing I wouldn't do for her. She raised 4 children alone, me and 3 brothers, and I have soooooo much respect for that little lady!!!
