mother body shammed me then i did it back.
so me and my mother were arguing in the car, my mother is overly jealous, and tends to always have negative to say about my relationship with my boyfriend
it has been going on for months and it really upsets me. especially if it’s not true.
during that argument my mom slides in the argument talking about how skinny i am, when the argument wasn’t even about my weight nor my body. it should’ve never been said, by her. i then said it back on how fat she was as well. and now she’s upset lol.
i don’t know if i’m in the wrong here. but my dad is now forcing me to apologize to my mother when she was the one who started it with me.
my dad never holds anything she does accountable. he thinks it’s okay for a parent to disrespect a child, but they want the child to not stand up for themselves. they just want to walk all over us.
Body shaming in general is wrong and two wrongs don’t make a right… with that said your parents are highly hypocritical and need a rude awakening. It’s not right for her(your mother, a grown adult) to needlessly pick fights and shame you and your dad needs to hold her accountable for what she said. He should be trying to coerce you both into apologizing and treat each other with respect not reinforcing her bad behavior.
