their Mothers. Moms can be tuff. We expect them to be a certain way - supportive and loving at the least- and they often disappoint us. It's hard to remember that they are only human and most of them are doing the best the can with the knowledge they were given.
A wise person helped me get over some of the issues with my Mom, this is what she said "Why every time you call do you expect a different Mom to answer the phone? You're going to get the same one, accept it." and I did, and now everything great:) K... so that's crap, but we've come a long way. She's actually one of my best friends today. I love her and accept her for who she is,which is huge growth. Now that's all I have to say about that, as my Mom is my editor. But you all can feel free to vent about your if you want:)
I don't know why the relationship between Mothers and daughters is such a strained one. It just is on both parts I think. But I do know this, my relationship with my Mom (everyone actually) got a lot better when I accepted her for who she is instead of who I wanted her to be. I love you Mom!
