I'm sad today. Yesterday was a family dinner for my sister's college graduation and, of course, daughter and I had a misunderstanding. It's so complication, with lots of years of water under bridge, and destrutive behaviors. And even though on the surface things are better, she sees things differently and often times, she says things that hurt and make me sad. I am even nervous around her, because I never know which way things are going to go. I am so discouraged, I feel like running away or giving up. I don't want to hurt anymore.

Yes, I love to work in my flower garden and am trying to have a rose garden, but sometimes successful, sometimes not.

I'm so sorry you're having a hard time with your daughter. How old is she? That may make a difference in your story. Sometimes kids just don't know how to deal with their anger or frustration over a situation, and they take it out on the person closest to them. That person is usually their mother. My daughter and I have struggles, too...she is 12. She takes things out on me, because she isn't comfortable talking to her dad about how angry she is with him. Maybe if you got the whole story out, you would feel better. This is a good place to vent, and lots of good people are here to help you work through it. Hang in there...

My daughter is 34 and the story is so long it would take forever to tell. But thanks for the reply. I guess I will just say, my family is pretty messed up, but we try to come together from time to time. I am hurting from so many years of anger and mistrust. I try hard to keep things to myself and try even harder to have a relationship with my daughter, but mostly I am just frustrated under the surface. And then I always feel that I have failed, failed her, and failed to be a good mother. Failed to keep her from messing up her life. Failed to be able to have a life myself. I know I've made lots of mistakes too. There is just so much baggage.
