My mum is mean (just need advices)?
I'm 17 years old and I'm a very good girl compared to most teens that goes out and do stuff. I actually don't have strict parents and I'm lucky that I don't however, my mum is really harsh on me. I can understand why though. I'm the middle child and my older brother who is 24 years old has no job, no license, no car.. basically nothing. All he does is stay home and play games, but his not a bad person if that's what you're thinking. I can't explain how much emotional pain I go through from my mum's harsh words along with other stress, but the things she say - it hurts more than anything. (like for example; I wanted to work in woolworths and hoyts cinemas but I got rejected by them. Ever since then she would just blame me for not being like other kids, how I'm never going to get a job and how I'm going to end up like my brother. I just got myself a job at a gift shop and started 2 days ago and I actually really enjoy working there. I was really happy that I could earn some money and make my parents proud. But then she went off telling my relatives that I only got lucky for getting that job. But these kind of thing happens every day. The lectures are always the same things; I hear it so often I can practically repeat every word she says in my head. Why is it so hard for my parents to learn to show love and support me rather than mock and doubt me like they are so sure of what my future is? I really need that in my life because I have never once felt that feeling before from anyone in my life. I know there is nothing I can do; I can't talk back nor can I sit her down and tell her how I feel (our family isn't like that). But I just want advices so I can remind and make myself feel better every time it happens.

There's little you can ever hope to do changing your parents behaviors. All you can do is look for the gold in what they say and do, chances are that they tell you things to help you. My father was a negative man too. Anything I would do usually met with "OK, next time do better". Even if I saved the world from... More
