GIRL WANTS TO SEEK REFUGE FROM MOTHER WHO IS “TERRORIZING” HER

A girl shared how she is being terrorized by her mother who smashes things against the table and throws dangerous items at her, and she wants to seek refuge from her.

Here is the story:

“I am desperate, frustrated, and at my wits’ end. The relationship I have with my mother isn’t the best and I have no one to turn to. I share my problems with a close group of friends but there’s nothing they can do and I’m left to fend for myself at the end of the day.

I’ve done all that I can as a daughter to provide for my mom and even take care of the family by paying for daily expenses. I don’t earn a lot but I try my best to help whenever I can and by making sure that I don’t take a single cent from my parents.

Aside from monetary contributions, I do most of the household chores at home and I even buy my parents’ favourite snacks and food for them occasionally.

My father adores me and does all that he can to ensure that I eat well and sleep well, but my mother terrorises me day and night, to a point where I feel so anxious and annoyed whenever she’s home and I feel at ease when she’s out.

With the neverending pandemic, I’ve been stuck working from home, facing my mother every day and it’s horrible.

She loses her temper over the most minor problems like if I forget to switch off the bathroom lights, or if I don’t respond to her immediately when she calls my name. She can smash things against the table at any time of the day and even throw dangerous items at me whenever she’s angry and never apologise for her actions.

She thinks that she’s the queen of the household because none of us will disobey her. I’d feel better if she does this to everyone but unfortunately, I am the only victim.

She dotes on my brothers, treats them to everything they want to eat, buys gifts for them, cleans up after them, but never does anything for me.

I want to seek refuge elsewhere and live away from her, but I have no boyfriend or husband to rely on, nor do I have the money to rent a place of my own.

I feel so unwanted despite being the child who does everything she can to please her. I’ve seen so many child suicide cases and parents feeling remorseful and heartbroken for not being able to save their child and I often wonder if she’ll feel the same kind of sadness if I’m not around anymore.

Having no one to turn to and no place to go to. Is there really no way out?”
