ANSWERS: 38
  • Yep, for the most part...she just has a problem with cutting me off a bit...it's not like I can yell at her :P
  • My mom is awesome. We occasionally have our problems, but I always loved her growing up for being such a hard working, caring person. I probably didn't show her enough appreciation.
  • My relationship with my Mother was usually pretty good. She often misunderstood me, because she was very insecure, but full of love. She's been gone 23 years now. In fact, I'm older than she ever was.
  • Its Okay I guess...She's a bit too nosey when it comes to my personal life. She always has been. It drives me insane.
  • My relationship with my mother is strained at best. And she is clueless that it is so. Which makes it worse. No self-awareness in that woman what so ever. To sum it up best, I'll paste an answer I gave to a previous question. (which was about how you would have raised yourself differently) I would have: *Listened without judgement *offered emotional support without conditions *allowed my children to define themselves, instead of trying to force my definitions upon them *spent time enjoying them, instead of treating them like a burden *given affection more freely *viewed them as individuals- not just my daughter or my son, because children are more than just images of their parents: they are their own people with their own hopes and dreams *I would not burden them with my own regrets and disappointments
  • I love my mother but I've never felt like I wanted to confide in her, not through any fault on her part. We get along fine, but as mothers do she has a tendency to drive me crazy :)
  • I would say my relationship with my mother is fair. She is not happy with many of my life choices and she likes to tell me about it. Which is really ridiculous, because I cant change my past. The only thing I have control over is the present and the future. But as I get older I have learned to tune out the negative bits and focus on the positive things she has to say to me.
  • yes, my relationship with my mother is one which causes much envy
  • Yes. I'm lucky.
  • Me and my mom are good for the most part.
  • it's going through changes right now. not unhappy, but waiting to be older cuz goodness knows right now neither of us are satisfied
  • Of all my relationships (friends, family, partners, etc), I have the closest one with my mother. We are more like friends, than mother and daughter (now that I am an "adult") and I couldn't imagine it any other way. I respect her more than anyone in the world.
  • Wonderful. My mother and I were of same kind. We used to argue endlessly on many matters. But deep down we both were attached so much with love and affection. She was a Great Lady.
  • Oh yes ,very much ! I feel satisfied with myself and at ease today ,with the support of my mother :-)
  • What relationship? And yes I am satisfied with that. I used to have a relationship with her. A painful one.
  • My relationship with my mother and my thoughts on God are two things I don't like to talk about on AB. It's so very personal to me. I know this might not help a whole lot but maybe a little.
  • my mother and i are like best friends...she knows practically everything about me and my life and my love life (minus the not being a virgin anymore tid-bit, but i'll tell her that later down the line when things are more solid with my lovely) but yes, i am happy with my relationship with her
  • We were pretty open and honesty with eachother as I grew up, and now we're like best friends! I love that lady and am happy to take after her.
  • I have a great relationship with my Mother.
  • As long as mum and i never live together again things between us will be grand i rekon! Things have improved so much since i moved to the other side of the world!
  • With my mother its sometimes that i like and want to hang out with her but most of the time ill talk to her for 5 minutes and already be annoyed with her.
  • I love my mom so much..but, we aren't as close as we used to be. Things could be better...
  • Yes. I'm good friends with my Mom now.
  • my mum died ver quickly from cancer last year , its only now that shes gone that i realise how great she was and how much i took our realtionship for granted , u only have one mum and i would advise everyone to never take for granted the time you have with your mum , i miss my mum loads
  • My mom beat the everloving hell out of me throughout my childhood simply because she could. She loved it so much she did it all the time. If I didn't give her some minor infraction on which to base her wrath, why, no problem. She just made one up. My mother sits in section 8 housing because she won't work, she's been in at least one battered women's shelter due to an abusive hubby (great example of karma, don't you think?) and she has no idea she even has grandchildren. I am happy she doesn't know her grandchildren exist (for their sake) and I am satisfied that she is no longer in my life.
  • Yes, I'm happy and satisfied and so is my Mother. I did hurt her feelings this morning though. But I quickly apologized to her. We had many talks over the years about my Dad. He is quite a challenge for us at times and I think that is one of the many reasons for our closeness.
  • distant and uneventful
  • I have no relationship and no contact with my mother. If I were to describe her I would say a cross between the mother in the movie The Manchurian Candidate and the one in Carrie. I remember seeing Carrie for the first time when I was young and thinking, she seems nice to me! In comparison she was. For the second question yes, I have grown happy and satisfied, especially in the last few years.
  • Very, very quiet. I'm kind of indifferent about it all.
  • I LOVE MY MOM !
  • I have had no relationship with my mother for 3.5 years. She is very judgemental and complains all the time about everything. I got divorced and found a wonderful man and all she did was find fault with him and his daughters. I could not take anymore so I stopped seeing her. I am not happy about deserting my 83 year old mother yet I need to live my own life.
  • I'll tell you about my mother..
  • It is alright, though it is never boring or just too good, for one good argument every now and then keeps things fresh!
  • I love my mom, she's one of my best friends. We get along great.
  • I had a great relationship with my mom. She was my best friend and my all time buddy, we had ssome great times together. I couldn't have asked for a better mom.
  • I wish it had been better. I miss her bunches.
  • It is happy. I think we respect each other. We are so different in personality. I am quiet and calm. She misunderstands me a lot. I am the youngest of three. That could have something to do with it. I live with her while finishing college. The relationship causes me a lot of pain..
