i think everyone in theor life time might of gone against something there mom / dad said ... and regreted it later - leaving thoughts in your mind .... but loving her will make up for all the times you had to sit & think ... just tell her once in awhile that you do love her .. she appreciate it

no.never.my mother was more close to my sister then me. i feel she never ever really cared me when compared to my sister. and after my marriage cos i my husband of my choice and not hers our relation further worsened to the extent of hello, how are you? have you had food, ok well then bye bye and that's it. even during my pregnancy not he day of my delivery neither while cuddling or rearing my infant son for two months, i could not open my self up to her. after my son became two months old, i left my parents house for my home . since i was dealing everything all by myself i thought i can as well deal it from my home instead of staying at my parents place and giving a false notion to hte society that my mother and father are taking very very good care of me whereas i was taking care of myself and my baby son, including cooking, giving my baby bathe, etc. but i had always watned to have a strong bond with her but she was the other way with me.

Oh yes I do have!!!! I can share anything and everything with her. We get intuitions about each other. Very strong intuitions especially when either of us is in trouble. As a young kid she taught me great values, imbibed fighter spirit. But as age has passed by I have become her mother. Tell her those things that are essential in todays world !!! Its an amazing relation

No. I know I don't as a matter of fact. My mother and I have NEVER seen eye to eye. She hates everything I do pretty much. I grew up with a mom who pretty much told me I was stupid and would never amount to anything my whole life. I was depressed a lot when I was living with her. Once I moved out I felt better, less useless. However, things have changed lately, she seems a lot nicer. I think it's because I gave birth but still. I suppose it's better late than never. I call her once a week to give her an update on my life. She visits every so often to see us and the baby. So it's a bond, not a bond I would like to have with my mother, but a bond none the less.

Yes, my mum and I are very very close, always have been, I guess it's because she was always there for me growing up when my father couldn't have cared less, mum was always the person I turned to if I was upset, in trouble, needed support, love, etc, so the bond over the years got stronger and stronger, she is also my best friend and someone I feel comfortable in confiding in and telling my secrets. She has done so much for me and even provided a roof over my head when I had to get out of a nasty relationship, that kind of bond is very special and can never be broken.
