You are experiencing a type of neglect. Your emotional needs aren't being met, which is leaving you feeling rejected, meaning you are also dealing with emotional abuse. Please consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

It is neglect - emotional neglect.
by: Anonymous

I think the biggest problem is is your mom probably doesn't even realize she's doing it, an outside source may be able to help. School counselor or something.

Without knowing your mom I guess that she probably had the same typre relationship with a parent & simply doesn't know how to connect. This is so sad for you both. Sad for her because she's missing out & sad for you because it hurts.

If you had a talk with her & a counselor, do you think she'd get angry & verbally abusive or do you think she'd grow quiet, thoughtful & then try her best? You know your mom best.

Good luck to you & REALLY good job in knowing this isn't right - this means you havethe power to stop this cycle with your own children someday.

I didnt think that was abuse until now too.
by: Dan1

After I read your story and the comment Darlene gave you, I now realize that I too was neglected aswell by my mother. I never knew for sure though bcus for some reason I didn't think that was a sort of child abuse. Now that I think about it, Neglect does hurt. I'm kinda like you too. My mom and I are somewhat disconnected. We been this way since I was 16 (I'm 21 now). My mom never really payed any attention to anything I did since she got with her BF. I hated her BF with a passion bcus of the bad things he'd do.I would always report the bad things my moms BF would do but my mom wouldn't believe me. She would deny it or try to make somthing up to make it seem that her BF was doing a good thing.After awhile I would start get in his face when ever I hear him raise his voice to my mom or little sibling, the sad thing is that my mom looked at me as the bad guy when I try to defend her.Since then I never said anything to her about her BF bcus I realized that I'm just wasting my time.I stopped talking to her and only talked when we NEEDED to talk. When I started college she never supported me. She is very selfish.not once have i ever heard her say she was proud of me. Like I said we never talked. I should of wrote this as my 4rth story on this site but I wasnt sure if it was abuse. I might consider it now that I know. Thnx a lot for sharing your story.

NPD?

I'm no professional, but it sounds like your mother could have Narcissistic Personality Disorder. You can read up on it or watch videos on youtube about it. My mother behaves similar to what you're saying.
