Dear mama ...

Sometimes the things you say to me get to me .You may think I'm dramatic acting as if I am a actress but I am a human being . I'm only 15 and I have real feelings  just like you .


Your a beautiful woman . That is something I can't take away from you . I love your smile , personality ,your looks and your kindness. I love everything about you . But the things you say to me when your upset make me feel less of myself.

calling me a skank does nothing but hurt my feelings.
Calling me a bitch does nothing but make feel less of my self....

And when my slit my wrist trying to find relief in self harm I think about all that hurtful things you said  to me.....

I understand that you get upset with the fact that I'm not what you want me to be .. but I'm a human being just like you who has feelings just like everyone else ....

I get it my attitude may not be the Best But I still am young . Killing my self esteem while I'm young does nothing but lead me to want to hurt my self in the end..

Not only am i 15 and a human being but I'm your daughter as a mother there are things you should not say . As a daughter I look up to u and I love you ...

When I get older and I have a child I will never make my child feel as worthless as you made me feel. I will not be a reason my child wants to end there life . Why ? Because I am there mother and there are limits to how I treat my child even when I am upset with there decisions.....

If you care and love me so
Much why say all those hurtful things to me ?

The things you say sticks to me because your the woman who birthed me into this world but your the one making me feel as though I was a mistake to be here ..

Yes you give me everything i could ask for and I thank you for that I appreciate everything you do and have done for me but the feeling for worthlessness overrides all of that ...again I am a human with feelings. You damaged me before any boy can .

    Mother/daughter relationships are very special, but can be super stressful sometimes. It's a strong relationship that can be full of both joy and pain. Name calling hurts. I always pray healing for those that mark their beautiful, unique flesh. My own little love would give anything to remove her own old wounds. Keep writing.

    Things your mother said knock holes in the wall of love . They can never be taken back and the damage done is forever . Too much damage and the wall will collapse and there will be no wall (no love) at all . And then both will be strangers to each other .
