My mom's behavior

So I have a mom who's been verbally abusive towards me since I was 12 and has continued doing that for over half my life. Whenever I'm happy or days that would usually end happily, Christmas, my birthday, etc, she always jabs me with hurtful words or finds some way to end the day miserably. Sometimes she'll even insult me out of the blue. She encourages my depression.

Trust me after 39 years of dealing with a narcissistic mother like yours it never ends. Stay away as much as you can. It will eat you alive if spend too much time around her. It doesn't get better.

This is "normal" in the sense that it's a very common occurrence, but it's obviously not a good thing.

I'm sure you've tried to talk to her about this, correct? If she's not listening to how she makes you feel, then she may have NPD (not trying to diagnose, but a friend of mine's mother had it and my friend had to cut her out of her life. She's much happier now, although it was a hard thing to do.)

I hate to resort to suggesting people cut others close to them out of their lives, but in this sort of scenario... It's one of the only things that seems to improve one's mental state.

Is it okay if I ask how old you are? If you're old enough to move out, avoiding her would be a lot easier.

Your mothers behaviour towards you is all in your head, she is only doing whats best for you.

Try thinking very hard what you are doing to upset your mother so much that she must retaliate with hurtful words, then you will have your answer and be in a position to stop antagonising your poor mother into saying hurtful things towards you!

Once you have that under the knee, your relationship with your mother with flower into a beautiful thing!

LOVE and RESPECT = LOVE and RESPECT

Oh yeh? I'll kick your ass because it's for your own good. And, wipe that smile off of your face. Your teeth are ugly. They bother people.

If someone comes up to you on the street randomly with no provocation and says "fuck you" that isn't in your head. this is basically what OPs mother is doing and you think thats just in his head?

the OP was not on the street, the OP provoked his / her mother into a rage and deserves what he / she got! Children without respect for their elders should be kicked out on the street.

It doesnt matter is he provoked it or not. this behavior is abusive. theres a difference between discipline and abuse.
