To tell my sister that she's got issues and that even though I love her dearly, she drives me crazy constantly asking me about every detail of my life and then feeling the need to give me unwanted opinions.

i often want to tell my boyfriend's mother that she is completely wrong 95% of the time, and needs to stop sitting around waiting for the rest of us to do things for her (she's in her late 40's, she's not elderly or handicapped). i'd like to tell her that she's manipulative, controlling, and needs to take responsibility for her life instead of expecting her son to constantly filter out the bumps for her. grrrrrrrrrrrr . . . .

To tell my mother to stop commenting on my weight and apperance until she get's hers under control!


i also wish i could tell my mother that years of her comments about my weight was part of what led me to an eating disorder. I have always been skinny she just doesn't see it!

OOOOh, 1:04 poster, are you my long-lost sister?

Seriously, she's not talking about you. She thinks SHE is fat (or ugly, or whatever) and it's her internal dialogue slipping out with your name on it. My mom suffers from the same thing.

I want to tell my boyfriend that making love 3 times a year just isn't healthy.

I want to tell my sister to stop judging me on the decisions I make. She doesn't understand that we're not the same person and while she has no problem moving to a new city across the country and immediately finding friends and fitting in, I have not been so lucky. That my decision to move back home is not "giving up" but just a decision I've made for my life. And she does not get to judge me or make me feel guilty for things I know to be right for me.

i want to tell one of my best friends that getting married isn't a good reason for giving your dog away when he is 8 years old and extremely attached to you. and it's also not a good reason to abandon your 4 year old cat at your old house, even though you stop by to feed him twice a week, you selfish bastard!

wow - a lot of us have mother issues.

I love my mother dearly and she's one of my best friends, but she bugs the hell out of me sometimes, too. She offers child-rearing advice when I don't ask for it. She's also close-minded about LOTS of things - - but she's right, so why should she understand anyone else's point of view, right?

I guess the question is - why AREN'T we saying these things...? I don't say anything to my mother because I don't want to hurt her feelings. It's easier for me just to let what she says go in one ear and out the other. She's not a mean-spirited person, so I know she says what she says with the best of intentions. She's getting old, and I know she won't change, so it's easier just to let her be the way she is.

I am about to cry for the dog that is being given away. What an A-hole. That is one of the meanest things I have ever heard.

update on the dog story- he was adopted by a very caring and attentive family with 2 young children and has actually been doing very well. i'd still like to say what i wrote to my friend, though. thanks for your concern.

A dog being given away is one of the meanest things you have ever heard??? Have you been living under a rock? Child pornography and abuse, rape, spousal abuse, now that's mean.

I want to tell my mom to learn to be happy with what you have and just enjoy your life. I'm so sick of hearing how everyone has better stuff thans hers and how can everyone afford this or that and she can't. She spends so much time being jealous of others she has no time to just be happy.

I want to tell my parents and my one friend that yes, I haven't been with my boyfriend long, but I know that he's the one for me... if you can tell that someone isn't right for you in a short period of time... why is it so hard to believe that you can tell when someone IS right for you in a short period of time?

Hey 2:53, Yes I live under a rock, how did you know? I have never heard of those other terrible things in the world, good thing there are people like you to educate me. Thanks.

to 3:21pm poster

I met my husband-to-be in an online chat room (not a dating website - just a general chat room). That was Sunday. On Monday, we talked online again and then on the phone. We met in person on Wednesday. I knew THAT NIGHT that I was going to marry him. We were married a year and a half later!
We've now been married for 6 years, we have 4 beautiful children, and I can't imagine my life without him! We are still as happy together (happier, actually) than when we first met!

Here's the key: discuss EVERYTHING - all major and minor issues - before you get married. Be honest and know where you stand with each other. You don't have to agree on everything, but you need to go into a marriage with all your cards on the table.

Good luck! : )

out of all of the things I'd like to say but can't....

I'd love to find a way to tell myself that I need to relax, be myself, and stop expecting perfection 100% of the time.

If I can find the right words and method to get that through my thick skull I think the rest of life's little speedbumps'll blow over just dandily.

I'd like to tell my mom that if she would just listen, and let go of being right, she would actually have a relationship with her daughter, something she wants so badly but that she can't seem to understand how to get.

I want to tell my BF's Mom and sister that they need to GET A LIFE and stop putting our relationship and how we live under a microscope. If only they would, they would see they each have 2 other sons who are or are going to be raised as macho chauvanist pigs, thank God my BF escaped those lessons!
They would also see that they are overweight and unhealthy, and that the soap operas they watch all day and night and the gossiping they do of everyone else is just a reflection of their own misery!
o, I, wish!

I would tell my mom that her having BAD asthma and smoking is GREALTY decreasing hwe likelehood of living to see my kids when i finally have them (im 26 yrs old now).

I love my mother and dont want to see her in a casket, so i tell her everytime she lights up in front of me that shes going todie before she sees her grandkids. Its one of my worst fears and she knows it. She almost never smokes around me now ;)
She set a wuit date (AGAIN) for the near furture ;)

9:35 poster-my daughter, age 5, told my mother to her face that smoking is going to kill her and that she wants her grandma to see her grow up. That was a changing moment and my mom quit. I guess I could never get through to her but a 5 year old could.

9:47 poster.. you're lucky. I was 5 when I told my grandmother the same thing. She didn't listen, and she just passed away because of it last year. I really miss her.

I would LOVE to be able to really tell my husband how I feel about his mother living with us. She is a nice lady and isn't the nasty m-i-l, but I still hate the fact that I don't have our house to myself and that I really just want us to be alone. No matter how I word it, it always sounds selfish and like I just want to kick her out on the street. Oh well, someday I will figure out a nice way to let him know...I would love to have her gone before we have kids though...there is not enough room for all of us! He needs to cut the apron strings and so does she!
