Beginning stoner phase. I remember that outfit SO clearly. I was annoyed that those jeans made me look fat. My cousin Susan is about 7 years older than me yet I'm taller than her! Heh. She's a MASSIVE Beatles fan too. Wish she'd post here!

OK!  So you were through with the homemade dresses.  Nice outfit and nice embroidered shirt.  I had one of those too, in black.

Nuh-uh!  You don't look fat.

I think I was about 13 or 14 there and you can't even see me cuz it's blurry!

I just sent my mom recent pics of myself and she goes: you look good considering...

It's no wonder I have image problems. I mean, who says stuff like that to people???

AAAHHHH!

Okay, just had to get that out. Now I can let it go.

Mothers, ugh. Mine is so passive-aggressive. "I'm not trying to get at you, honey, but if you lost some weight maybe you would get some dates."   :-\

I think you look pretty in the recent photos you've posted.

Well, Sondra, you should have no image problem. None at all!

Thanks. But whatever I look like or not, that's a crappy thing to say. And she knows how I feel about it already. Jeez. What drives them? I hate that she even still gets to me.

Maybe it's her own insecurity. I feel like mothers sometimes project their negative self-image onto their daughters.

Stuff like that is never helpful. What's it even have to do with anything? You're a beautiful person inside and out. And damn smart too. Shouldn't that be acknowledged??

Ha. No, she thinks her side of the family is perfect and I take after my dad's side of the family. And apparently we were all nuts. She's just got issues. I know this, yet still...yeesh. Seriously, some people should just never have kids. It's not just a thing you do because.

Well intelligence is a given in my family haha. But then so is cutting remarks.

It's funny how parents will tell you it's what's on the inside that counts when you're a kid, but they change their tune when you're going through your awkward phase.

You're a grown woman, though! You shouldn't let her bring you down. I mean really.

Being a grown woman has nothing to do with it. Not when the person refuses to change. Which again is why I'm out here miles away form her and the rest of the family. Seriously, I've worked a lot of it out, but certain comments still cut through me ya know? And stop talking about my age!

Well, it should be acknowledged.  I think that's just the way mothers are.  Even the best of them!  The mother-daughter relationship is special.  I see similarities with my mom and my sister.  She's pretty, intelligent, and has achieved her career and family ambitions.  A good mom wants the very best for their children.  Sometimes they have trouble expressing it.

I think most of today's parents are beyond this. They've realized what their words do to their kids. The parents at my school go out of their way to acknowledge the best in their kids. Sometimes they go a bit overboard, but it's better than the opposite. But then, I don't know what they're like at home cuz a lot of these kids are neurotic.

Sorry! You know I love you. And I understand how it feels when some comments just really affect you. I feel the same way about my weight. It seems no matter what, I can never make up for being overweight. You'd think getting into a prestigious university and making a ton of friends would mean something to my mom, but no.

I don't know what it is with family. It seems like they are always saying things to hurt you, thinking that it will make you a better person. But in the end, it only gives you low self-esteem or causes you to resent them.

As soon as I get old enough I'm moving far far away from my mother and extended family. Even though I live five hours away from my mother when I'm at uni, I still have relatives in the city! It's like an epidemic.

Very true, Sondra.  It's a generational thing with our parents.  I know exactly what you mean.
