My mom lately has been just so bad on my confidence level. Yesterday, she told me how the way I dress is embarassing to her. So this morning when I came downstairs in a cute outfit, she told me it looked good but was probably too hot to wear it. So I said to her, “Oh sorry, I was trying to look nice so I wouldn’t embarass you.” she told me to “stop that”, and I knew I probably had made her feel bad, but I didn’t care. the night that she made all those remarks about me, I wouldn’t talk to her. I almost went back. It was a scary thing. I had to fill out an impulse control log, something I hadn’t done in a long time. I resisted, but I don’t ever want to feel that weak again. I don’t really know what’s happening, and she’s just getting worse towards me. It’s almost unbearable. Just today, I was talking about how I could become a tutor at school but I don’t do well in math, and I wouldn’t be able to explain it well to someone else. She accused me of being negative and saying that I never had a positive side to anything…but she doesn’t realize that She’s making me this way! I really can’t wait to get out of here. I feel like I’m suffocating. And I can’t stand it.
