Thats cold. This makes me appreciate the relationship I have with my parents more. I hope you and your mother end up being on better terms soon. Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day OP.

Well bah humbug to her, too. Some people don't understand that giving a gift is generous, and it really is the fact that they thought about you that counts.

You should try counselling with your mother, you don't want an absent relationship with a very influential person in your life.

You should try sucking a dick. Who gives a shit if you have a bad relationship with your mom if she's a total bitch.

If a person doesn't want to try as well, it's not on op to try twice as hard. You can't get help if they aren't willing. Better to just avoid then rather than let them stress you out and make your life hell.

Been there done that. You can try forever and hope mom comes around or you can get on with your life and hope mom comes around - either way nothing will change if the mom is not willing to make any effort.

Some people are just... poisonous. Mother or no, OP may very well lead a happier life without her. OP could spend his/her entire life fighting a pointless, heartbreaking battle if their mom is hateful enough to not even try to be pleasant. Influence can be good or bad and this FML leads me to believe OP is better without their mother's influence.

Your comment bothers me. Instead of pretending you like your gift, you should try appreciating the effort people put into choosing, buying, and wrapping the gift for you.

#29 That's exactly WHY you pretend to like it. Because you DO appreciate their effort and kind thoughts, even if it's something you don't like or probably won't use.

That's harsh, but hey, now you can return the gift and keep the money. If people aren't even going to pretend to be nice about the presents, forget getting them one next year.
