Hopefully I don't get scolded too much for that title or what I'm about to say but at least I'm being honest. I'm a happy go lucky very affectionate person. Love mornings. Love my husband. Like my job, my home, love my friends and family. I see the positive in a negative more often than not and so thankful for everything I have (even though its not much).
My 15 year old daughter - for nearly the past two years... moody almost always. Disorganized, keeps a Filthy room, horrible grades, I don't care attitude, rude, nasty, temper and OMG is she lazy. Its all about her and what you can do for her - the more money you have the more she likes you. She's only mean and nasty with me and her biological father (with whom she sees bi-weekly). No one else see's that bad side of her personality - i know it sounds odd but its the truth. No problems with drugs, boys, smoking... just a really nasty self absorbed shower me with money attitude.
It hit me this morning. Maybe God put her in my life to keep me strong. She's the only negativity in my life and I think that's because God is trying to make me a stronger woman and to help me appreciate all the other wonderful things in my life just a bit more. I know some of you are thinking I'm a horrible mother for thinking this way, and that's fine... but I can't be alone.
If anyone has any helpful tips, not necessarily to turn her personality around (although I'm all ears) but more for me to stay true to myself and my personality without letting her dim my light I'd really appreciate it.
