Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm pleased to try to help you today. I'm sorry to hear that you are having these problems with your daughter. It sounds like it has been very disturbing for you. As a mother, I can certainly understand your hurt feelings. We would do anything for our children, and it can be painful sometimes when we feel that they are being disrespectful or that they are rejecting us. However, as parents, we also need to remember that our children are separate people and they are entitled to spend their time with who they want to. Even though it is hurtful to you, I think it would be in your best interest (and in the best interest of your relationship with your daughter) if you work on accepting this and not make her feel guilty about it. I'm sure you would rather have her spend time with you because she wants to - not because she feels she has to in order to keep you from being upset. If you need to, consider getting back on your medication so that you can deal with these kinds of issues without getting so upset. You will be much more attractive to your daughter if you are feeling good and happy than if you are feeling needy and depressed. Best wishes, and please let me know if I can answer any further questions. Tamara
