Where is the Love?!


Where is the Love?!

Making ends meet as a single parent raising my daughters, and grandchildren

I raised my daughters by myself for over 20 years. I worked, volunteered, worked 2 jobs to make ends meet. It was a struggle and some hardships along the way, but by the grace of God I was able to persevere.

I helped with raising my grandchildren for the past 10 years and even though at times I wanted to run away, I pressed forward.

Now that my oldest daughter and 2 of my grandchildren move to East Chicago, IN area because of her boyfriend is a truck driver and he needed to be close to his job. That was fine, she needed to move on with her life and her kids.

And my youngest daughter will be getting married this next August and I am happy for her and her finance, but and her comes the BUT, I feel let out with her wedding day and I am not important to her.

That’s how I’m feeling right now, and that I don’t mean a thing to her and to my other daughter as well. I did so much for my family and grandchildren that I thought things would be different between me and my daughters. I guess it’s not and that makes me feel so unloved and used at the same time. You see I have been helping my oldest daughter with finances and that comes right out of my own pocket.

I get so upset at times and that’s why I feel used. My other daughter hasn’t even asked me to help her with her wedding, because she is having a few people at her church help instead. WHERE is the consideration???

I don’t get it and on top of that I don’t get to see my youngest grandson, who is my youngest daughter’s son, when I use to see him every Saturday. He’s 8 years old. I raised him ever since he was born. His father is not thinking about my feelings either.

Is there help for me, I just want to pack my bags and move to another state so I can have a life of my own…..

I am a bad daughter but I can’t help it

I’m a bad daughter I always argue with my mom. I lied to her often. I stole her makeup or money. I didn’t did my chores and I think I never even respect her as a mother.

One of my cousins has such a good relationship with her mom. If I met her with her mom she’ll hug her kiss her.

We simply talk about life together. I envy it. I want to have a great bond with my mom.

I know she loves me but my ego is just too big.

I want to apologize n I want to bond with my mom but I can’t.

I just don’t know how to express it..

My mom said that by end of this year she’ll be living by herself and she wants to divorce too. And I’m the reason why.

I want to improve our relationship but it’s too late maybe. I love her but I can’t express it. I need her but I can’t say it. I want to talk /discuss about life with her but I can’t even say anything..

I wish someone can help me with my problems….

Listening, Actually, Really, Listening


Sssst, quiet and listen…..

I remember when my daughter was around two being over the moon ecstatic that she was finally talking.  By the time she was three, I was contemplating duck tape,  praying for peace,  I have never been a person that could selectively listen, if someone was talking, I just always listened.  I’ve never learned how to block it out.  It draws my attention and I can’t ignore it.  Good or bad, I will never know.

Over the years I’ve been asked countless times how I have managed to form a close relationship with both my children.  My children are 19 and 16,  not really children anymore but,  both young adults I actually like and admire.

The one thing I have done with both my children from infancy on is let them talk.  Don’t interrupt to lecture or judge, just let them talk. Don’t solve the problem,  don’t correct the English,  don’t offer your experience…

Mother’s Day? I am sad

Mother’s Day? I am sad

I am so sad… My mother-daughter relationship is very low… We hardly get along. There are a few times she let me go out (but this always brings with it fights like ” why are u going out? u have to study! u re not as good as your sister is” and lately is gotten worse… she even said to me that she doesn t love me, well she got angry by a thing and that s” why she said that” * her explanation*, but as a mother you shouldn t be saying that…I felt like someone pulled my heart of my chest..

I am 16 years old, and believe me, I never told my mom if I was having a boyfriend or if I was having a fight with my best friend, nothing!.. They left town for 2 days and i called my boy best friend at my place, to catch up, to laugh like we used to because we haven t seen each other in a long time. But my mom find our that a boy came to my house and now she is never ever letting me home alone. She said that she expects the worst from me and that from now on she would not care about me and stuff like that. My girl best friend has the most wonderful mom i ve ever met, i always tell her everything, she knows when to be strict and when to laugh, when to give an advice.I feel like home in their house… But when it’s time to get home, I feel so sad, because I know that when I got home I will be yelled at and insulted… She doesn t appreciate me at all…

There is a lot to say, but I don t want to bore you…
