ME!! I love my mom to death but when it comes to having convos with her or getting advice or anything else for that matter she is not the one i depend on we havent really got along with one another for a really long time sometimes i think we both just tolerate each other for the sake of others like for me its for my kids for her its for her husband and its only gotten worse since she got remarried she is a completely different person i dont even know anymore :(
I think I know exactly how you feel. I feel attatchment to my mother because she's essentially all the family I have. However, she was a pretty shit mother. I have been pretty bitter with her in the past and only about a year ago has our relationship smoothed out. I don't go to her for advice in raising my own child. She's a good grandma, great with my son. I really think being a grandma suits her because there's no real responsibility and when she gets angry I can take over. I admit at times special occasions like mother's day are trying because there's all these cards expressing really deep feelings and sometimes all those old wounds get reopened lol. I know it's petty. But I feel really she has just always set me up for failure and. I would say that I love her though, mostly because she was all I had for a long time, not because of much of anything she's done.
