    Was My Mother A Narcissistic Mother? My mother is not an extreme narcissist and she is a good person and a good mother. However, as a young adult I am trying to sort out some of the insecurities I got from her. She would feud with family a lot. It was like either you were in or you were out. The feuds would last about 6 months to a year and then always end with the other side conceding. Only once did my mother offer an apology that I can think of.

    During these feuds (always between her and her siblings) I would be told bad things about the person she would be mad at. I would be in trouble if I ran into the aunt-uncle she was mad at. As I got to be about 15 and no longer joined her in gossiping about her family she got defensive and would act like I was betraying her by being nice to the other people.

    When her father died 2 years ago after a series of strokes she was mad I was with him when he died and not her (she was upset but her sister who she had just argued with was there for the afternoon and I stayed with the aunt and grandmother for the afternoon). We didn’t think he would die that day, hospice had projected about a week. So my mother made it all about her and grant it her Dad had just died, but so had her 5 siblings’ father and her mother’s husband.

    My mother was also highly embarrassed if I was misbehaving in public and I was ADHD as a kid so often wild and not the easiest. My father would only correct me at times, my mother would whenever in public.

    Why Do I Keep Crying? I think maybe I have a bit of depression or something. I often feel very down and sensitive.

    Yesterday I cried because I felt it was in a unfair situation. I made a little mistake of sneezing and touching something. My brother is a bit of a germ freak and very petty with this stuff. He got really angry and decided to name and shame me in front of parents. My parents were like “wtf”, but shouted at me anyway to make my brother happy. I apologised but my brother just kept going on at me. I went to my room and burst out crying.

    And today, I was out for dinner celebrating Mother’s Day, all my family were there including cousins etc. My cousins were constantly talking about how amazing their lives were, enjoying their jobs, living in their flats and houses and driving cars.
    I’ve never had those chances due to not being able to find a job that I’m good at. (I’ve been having problems with unemployment because of a specific learning difficulty).
    I just felt a little overwhelmed and almost started to cry, but managed to hold the tears.

    And I cried again because; I went to unlock the door and grabbed the keys. However I didn’t see the craft knife on top so it made a pretty loud noise when it dropped on the floor. My family got a little annoyed with the noise and asked me what have I dropped. I told them but ended up repeating myself 5 times because my gran couldn’t hear. She turned around and shouted to other members of the family, “Can’t bloody hear that girl”.
    I just seem to be really sensitive at the minute. And after an hour to myself I feel pretty pathetic and stupid.

    I’ve been dealing with a lot of difficult stuff at the minute and constantly feel inadequate.

  • I’m So Frustrated With Work. Could Anyone Give Me Advice? Since January I’ve been training for a promotion, and know how to do everything that comes with this promotion. I was happy because I was FINALLY being given recognition and felt my hard work has paid off. Lately I feel like I’m being taken advantage of. My boss says thank you whenever I come in to cover for people, but he seems annoyed that I always come in. I do managerial stuff for him but he never says thank you. He promised me I’d be given 30 hours a week, then hires two new people so I’m down to 25. My supervisor asked him if I could lead her shift on Mother’s Day since she got the day off (and specifically asked that I do it). He instead asks the 17-year-old shift leader to do it, but she doesn’t know how to do the drawers so I’ll have to do them even though she’s in charge of me. Another girl is in training, but her name was bolded on the schedule (managment people’s names are bolded), she has a steady 36 hours AND she’s employee of the month when she always wants to leave early, has nothing done and has two jobs.

    I feel so used and like no one appreciates me. I’ve worked my butt off and feel like no one cares that I go above and beyond everyday. I just want my promotion so people will respect me more. Even without a huge raise I’d be happy. Only my hours and another girl’s were cut to make room for the two new people by the way.

    Could someone give me advice?

    What Do You Think Of A 9 Year-old Having A Navel Piercing? I’m 16 years old and I work as a nanny for one of my mom’s friends who is a single mom with a 9 year-old daughter and works two jobs in order to provide for her and her child. A little over a week ago while I was doing chores around her house and looking after her daughter, the little girl noticed I had a belly button ring and then showed me that she had one too. She says her mom did it herself for the girl’s 9th birthday.

    I brought it up to the mom the next day and she told me she did it for her because her daughter always liked her mom’s belly button ring and wanted one herself so she did it for her birthday. One of the mother’s two jobs is as a professional tattoo artist and body piercer so I know she knows about taking care of it and all that. She even told me that she cleans her daughter’s belly button herself every morning and night so it will never get infected.

    I asked the mom if she was sure that a navel piercing at her daughter’s age was appropriate and she said “Why not? She’s gonna end up get one anyway.” At first I was shocked about it and even told my mom, asking if it was illegal. My mom said although she would never let me have one at that age, there was nothing wrong with it and that I was overreacting.

    I guess I was a little out of line with my reaction but I’m over it now and still work for that woman and her daughter and whenever I see the little girl’s navel ring, I don’t give it any thought. What do you think about it?
    @WesleyP: Actually, it isn’t illegal at all.
    @Anika: I’m only curious to see what other people think. And the answers I’ve been getting say differently that no one cares…
    @Star80: I only asked this here because no one answered in the Grade-Schooler section! If you have a problem with the question then you don’t have to answer it. For what it’s worth, thank you for answering anyway but no one’s making you answer.
    @Emily: They didn’t go anywhere, the mom pierced her daughter’s belly button herself in their home.
    @Paul: I don’t understand what you mean by the circumstances I have outlined. Because the girl got a belly button ring at 9, she’ll most likely end up pregnant by the time she’s 15? I can see why a little girl having a belly button ring would be questionable but don’t exaggerate, that’s just silly.

    What Do I Do? Ok so I like going shopping by myself, I just like to take my time choosing what to buy etc I hate people coming with me.
    On Friday me and my best friend went shopping together to get stuff for Mother’s Day and now I told her that I’m going shopping tomorrow and she said that she could come to.

    Like I thought that Friday was just a one off, and now she’s deciding to come with me all the time. How can I kindly tell her that I prefer shopping alone without hurting her feelings?
