It's time for me to make a serious thread.
My mom is...a bit hard to handle. She's bipolar and collapses under stress. This is especially tough on me because the things I need her for she is unable to do (for a period of time). I can lean on my family, but none of them live nearby, and I feel a bit imposing when I bother my friends about it every week. To tell you the truth, sometimes I just can't stand my mom and want to get as far away as possible and go live with my sister.
But to the point of this thread... My mom just happened to mention something today about the apple not falling far from the tree, and, to tell you the truth, I got really freaked out.
I was just wondering if you guys agree with the statement "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree." It seems like no one ever wants to become their parents, but they end up like them anyways. Tell me about your personal experience and, if you would, reassure me that I won't grow up to be like my mom.
Please do not flame me. I don't dislike (not quite hate) my mom because she's bipolar, I dislike her because a number of other things that I may or may not mention on this thread.
Please follow the rules
