I’m 21 years old, and I have hated my mother for as long as I can remember. Everything she says, everything she does, even the way she walks, coughs, eats, and breathes irritates me to the point where I feel like shattering a window.
I get that burning feeling in my chest like I just have to break something (and I often do) whenever she’s in the same room as me. She makes me physically sick to my stomach. The thing is, to my other family members and to friends, she’s not that bad.
She’s strict, but not cruel. She says what she means, without worrying about peoples’ feelings, but lots of people tend to be that way, and people don’t hate them for it. Especially not their own family members.
I don’t know what my problem is, or why I feel this way. All I know is that I hate her. And I know it’s not fair or right, and that it doesn’t make any sense, but I can’t help it.
