My mom makes me feel like i do everything wrong. And when I say sorry, she gets mad. When I DON'T say sorry, she gets mad. She also acts like I have no feelings and I have to be perfect. Any advice?

I see others telling you to talk to her. There is a slim chance that will help. Honestly though, people who find nothing but fault in others are just not happy with themselves. It is impossible to please them. If you do every thing perfectly, they will still complain because they can't. Try to remember that it is not you she ise unhappy with, it is herself. I know it is hard not to take the disapproval to heart, but try. Also when you are away from her, find friends and other relatives who are supportive of you.

I think you need to tell her just how you feel. I know it might seem impossible but I think that you can do it. Let her know just how you feel. If she doesn't want sit down to listen to you than talk to another older relative and explain to them what is going on and you need advice cause they just may be able to help you out.

I'm trying to figure out a way to answer your question but right now the only thing I want to do is stick my boot up your mother's butt!!! No mother should ever make their child feel that way. She should be ashamed of herself .

Sit down and have a heart to heart talk. Did she grow up with the same criticism ? There's a high probably that she did and history tends to repeat itself.

Explain things need to change and that you don't excell with that kind of tough love.

Go ahead in the future and imagine your children being criticized.  Tell her it really needs to stop here and now.
