Does anyone else have this problem, or am I just evil??? I am just so fed up with my daughter's recent behavior that I am finding it extremely hard to be nice to her, even when she is being nice to me. She often asks me if I hate her. Ugghh, knife right through my heart!!! I love her so much but cant for the life of me bring myself to show her. I cant express the empathy and heartbreak I feel for her, instead I walk around completely miserable and often times very cold and standoffish. Today she actually cleaned the "nasty bathroom" and all I could say was "good job", not even enthusiastically at that!! She just left the house and I told her I loved her in a nonchalant sort of way. Now of course, I will sit and wallow in my guilt. Why can't I live in the moment, why is it that I am so caught up in my own feelings of resentment and frustration that I can't accept the good moments when they do occur, even if they are far and few between? She could never know how much I do love her and how much I worry about her. I'm being incredibly selfish, only thinking about my own feelings. I hate myself for that!!! Everyday I tell myself that I will make the effort to see some good in her, make an effort to enjoy her even if it is just for 10 minutes. As she is walking about the house I feel the love and want so much to be able to just hug her with meaning, I want so much to be able to verbally express what my heart feels, but that always gets buried by the frustration I am so used to feeling. Am I alone, or does anyone here understand where I am coming from? Has anyone gone through this too???
