My relationship with my Mother has been strained for some time. Just wondering/brainstorming ideas that could create some new generating moments. Times for the future.Kind of some good tips to insure the past remain in the past and the present and future be welcomed.

My mom and I haven't really ever gotten along very well either. She had me at a young age and blamed me for ruining her life for a long time, so our relationship has always been unfriendly. Recently I moved out and we've started talking occasionally and meeting for lunch or something. We only talk about upcoming events and such so that we avoid the bitterness of the past. We also joined a game night group where we play a game called bunco once a month. It's nice because we see each other in a friendly environment and spend time with each other and friends so nothing bad ever comes of it. These things have worked for me so maybe if you try them they will work for you :)

Go for an outing with you mom. Let it be you and your mom alone. Try to spend the whole day with her and just do anything that you both want to do. That will give you both great pleasure. Just dont talk anything that had happened. Talk something about your and her future plans and what you are doing now. Talk sweet nothings, that will definitely rekindle your relationship with her. All the best.
