When I was 15 my mother and I went through a really rough phase.
For the entire year we argued and just weren't getting along. At all!!!
It was strange for us because we're practically the same person, esp now, but then I don't even know what the problem was. She just couldn't relate to me at all. I was going through a lot...I think everything just contributed to that rough time.
My mother is an OCD clean freak. If I leave a magazine on the coffee table for a minute to go brab my lip balm or lotion my hands, when I come back it will be back on the bookshelf by the time I return
She is hard to please, she's not satisfied with the level of house work anyone does but her, and she nags all the time about things not being done properly.
I try not to be like that....but now that I'm in that position, I too am a clean freak and feel like my house work is the only one that gets the house clean
She's a Gemini, so I had to quickly learn that she is just naturally hot and cold. She doesn't hold grudges for long. One min she's mad, the next minute she's hugging you or sharing her food with you.
We have a great relationship, and our bond is very strong. We're basically twins. Seriously. I feel that maybe we are mentally and emotionally connected. I know when she is going to call me, and we often call each other at the same time to say what just happened to us, and oftentimes, it's the same thing that happened to us both!!
