good day dear fellow mylotters, i really do not know why my mother does not appreciate my presence anymore here at home. that, she does not even treat me as her eldest daughter. that, there are times, she just ignoring me, as if i am not exist. and that really makes me feel hurt. and because of this, i really feel depressed everyday. that, there are times, i don't know what to do anymore. most of the times, i want to leave and move out from our home. thinking, my mom will gonna miss me again and look for me one day. i am just lifting everything to God. hoping that God will grant me the right answers on my question. praying that He will show me the purpose why I am here.

Hi airasheila! I know it's not easy to be neglected, especially by our loved ones. In your case, just try to broaden your understanding. Your mom might be handling some problems nowadays that's why she's acting that way or whatever reason there is, just continue to show your love and care to her. I know God will answer you prayers in due time. Cheer up! :-)

To let God take over your life is a very good decision you have made with your situation, airasheila. I do admire with what you have done. PRAYING to GOD is the best solution to every questions we have that no one knows what the answer could possibly be. You should always remember too that each of us is created by God with a reasonable purpose. Your mother might not be able to acknowledge your purpose of existence yet you are given by God the ability to discover it and use it to the maximum advantage, for His glory. Pray also for you mother. That she be given by God the good health, with peace and love in her heart, and longer life so she can have time to ponder and acknowledge your presence in her life...that you are as important as how she valued her life too.

Wow!! I can remember many of these days myself. I actually now since my Mom passed on 4 yrs. ago only have contact with one sister even out of 5 kids. But it can be sad when your family does not really want you around and treat you like this. It makes you wonder how they can ever be like, or feel like this, and don't they know that this will often destroy how a person feels about themselves, and sometimes you as well. I will be Praying for God to touch this situation, and find you something better for your life, as this is not the Best place to be in your life. At least thru it all you are continuing to Praise God and lift him up in all the down times, and he will bring you out.

Oh my, it must have been so hard for you. Maybe it is better to talk to her, ask her why she is acting like that, ask her if you offended her on some ways. If she will not talk to you, then I guess it is time for you to move out from your home ( if you are in the right age already). It is really hard if someone you love ignore you like that. I hope everything will be alright soon.

I am sure that you still have a purpose here on earth, I hope you find it. And I am also sure that you mm has a reason as t why she is acting that way- you should just ask her directly so you would know- and let her know how you feel.. I hope you feel better and your relationship will heal.

I hope all the good words you hear in this discussion makes the burden lighter in your situation. I can relate to that for I am also struggling today. I know God hears and answers prayers and He will always protect us. Trust Him and do what you think is right for doing the right thing multiplies, more good results will come in for we cannot correct things if we use wrong solutions. Trust Him and trust yourself. Nothing can be solved in a conversation. Perhaps you can talk to your mom and ask her why she changed, why she is ignoring you. Don't be afraid of confrontation, for that is what I will do later on. Be objective, think before you say anything, be humble for she is your mother and she is older. Listen to her as she speaks and show some respect. God wants us to be happy, He gave us freewill, so use to do good. Peace be with you. I love you all. Best, Angelo

Hi airasheila... I am really sorry to hear your situation. Its must really depressed to be ignored by your mom. Are you still really clueless what happen?. I think if I were you I just hug my mom and I said I really sorry if I hurt her badly, and said I am clueless what I did wrong to her. What ever happen she still your mom and she will forgive you just need courage to made the first move. Just made sure when you that's its just you and your mom there.

airsheila hi did you ever try to sit down with your mom and ask her why she is so cold towards you?tell her you feel like she does not appreciate you as maybe she just does not know how to approach you anymore. you do need to talk to her as child to mother.Gpd is always there for us but you also need to tell her how you feel when she ignores you. do you have fights? do you ignore her when she asks you to do something,ask her if she is upset with you and why? god helps us who help ourselves so do talk to her as she is your mom.

Hi airasheila! I admire your courage and wisdom to lift everything to God when facing this kind of problem. You might feel depressed and confused at this time but it is an assurance that God will never leave you whatever this you are going through. It really hurts to be ignored by someone you love especially your mom. If you find the courage, you can talk to her. Have a heart-to-heart talk with her and ask her why she is ignoring you. Maybe you have done something that she didn't like that you are not aware of. Awareness if very important and if you keep the communication line open between you and your mom, then this will clear things out. It is clear that there is a problem and you cannot solve it if you don't know what it is. You have to know what is causing your mom to ignore you. Pray a lot and don't lose hope. A mom is always a mom, she may be tough on the outside but she always love her children and wants only the best for them. Keep your hopes up and never waver in faith.

God - never gave up
yes only god can help us in every aspect of life ,the ups and downs and every single thing he only can help us and guide us.Should trust in god and ask for his blessings. It is only that she wants to get detachment its only making u to live with out her presence.So she is doing that.It is not that she does not love u anymore it is that she wants to make u more strong enough to live alone in this world.
