I ask this because my mother and father divorced at a very early age. But to get back at him, she led us to believe all of these awful things about him. That's not the only thing she never taught me how to budget as a kid or take care of finances . It was always about her, my money went straight into her bank account and me being a good daughter I never once did anything about it. She lived threw me, bought me clothes she thought I should wear and trust me her style is not mine. Now that I am older I fight back but she still tries to use my kids against me and my family all think I am the worst daughter in the world for treating her like I do. but I get majorly depressed and try not to show it because then I know she has power over me and I am trying not to give her that anymore. Even my kids recognize now how much my mother hurts me and they are only 7yr. old and 5 yrs. old . how do I get over this depression when we live in the same house?
