I'm having a hard day today. I had a fight with my mother, and I hate fighting with her. It just feels absolutely horrible and is very depressing. I'm almost 30 years old, this shouldn't be happening anymore. I'm feeling very sad, and wish everything was different... Why can't we just have a simple, happy relationship? Do you ever have issues with your mother? (Photo free for public use from Pixabay.com)

I am 29 years old. Yep I fight Mom too. It's inevitable. It happens. We go back to normal as usual. But yeah Mom has this annoying habit of having the last word whether she is in the wrong or not. It's better to let her have that and end the fight or go on fighting. Since I am not a confrontational person. I just have my say and I am done....pretty much.

Trust me, I still bud heads with my mom as well. I'm almost 29 years old and we don't always agree. Although it's been a while since we've had an actual fight, but I still understand how you feel. My mom and I disagree on quite a few things, to say the least. Hopefully you and your mom can talk this through.

@MissNikki I am so sorry that you had a hard time due to the argument with your mum. I really don't think it matters what age you are or even how much you can love someone. Arguments still can happen between the best of friends, or with the closest family member. I hope things have been resolved now.

I pretty much cut my mother out of my life about 15 years ago. I'll still communicate with her sometimes, but it is superficial stuff like "how's the weather?" and stuff like that. She's made some life choices that I don't agree with or support, and it's slowly killing her, but I told her she could choose between family and her destructive lifestyle. She chose the lifestyle. I still love her, but I have cut her loose to deal with her own demons.
I'm so sorry to hear about that Jeff, but I do understand why you would do that. I have realized I need to keep some type of space between me and my mom. I have to try harder to realize when she and I have been spending too much time together ...
I had some fights with my mother when I was growing up .. and even as an adult, I had some words I wish I didn't say to her .. She's gone now and I wish I had a better relationship with her .. I wish she left me with beautiful memories to cherish now that she's gone ....

I think everyone goes through that with their parents at one point in time or another. Even us men when we decide to see someone and our mother doesn't like them it makes things harder because you want to keep the peace and sometimes they go at it and you are stuck in the middle trying not to take sides between your mother and your significant other/spouse. I was fairly lucky my mother and spouse got along for the most part and well my wife isn't afraid to speak up for herself. She tries to bite her tongue and isn't sensitive so she can take a lot but when she has had enough she will put my mother in her place.
