  • Just Sad

    I'm seventeen. My Mom and I do not get along. She blames me for her issues since she got pregnant with me and had to marry my Dad. She also constantly tells me that none of my family likes me and that I'm worthless. She tells her friends that I emotionally abuse her but I have friends who like me and say that I'm never even that mean. I don't swear at her, I haven't said "I hate you" since I was little, and I do what she says and never complain, even when she moved out a couple of months ago I held my tongue. Even when she cheated on my Dad and accused him of controlling her. My Dad let her go on a date with another man, he wasn't angry and didn't even try to stop her. She says she doesn't want me here but then says I can't leave. She says I'll never be anything. I don't know what to do because I want to run away but I feel guilty

It sounds like your mother blames you for things that were really her own choices. It sounds like the problems in your parents' relationship have really effected you. It is understandable that you are having a difficult time dealing with this situation. It sounds like your mother says very hurtful things to you and blames you for things that are not your fault.
