Maybe this person did inherit their mothers candor, and maybe that's one of the reasons. People don't like honesty at least when it's critical honesty, maybe this person is just as honest as her parent and that will definitely gain you a few unhappy people if not an outright enemy. Lol
Exactly, and any mother can do that and still give advice on how to change what's wrong with out and out seeing me let me give you a dozen things that sucks about you! As a mother I couldnt do that crap. OP I'm sorry that your mother let you down emotionally when you needed her the most today. Good luck.FUL
Take it as an opportunity to grow if you think any of them are true. Sometimes the truth hurts, but ignorance is never bliss.

I'm from a very small town, no one likes anyone. When you're older, you'll find your place and people who like you. Sucks that your mom is one of those people that you'll need to be getting away from to find your people. Sorry, op.
I do agree. There's a way to be honest about this with your child and this was not it. A mother is supposed to give constructive criticism not an out and out list of the reasons her child sucks. And it also makes me wonder if her child sucks to the point where she can get her a list of a dozen things to change then her mother deserves a list of a dozen things showing how she failed her child. Otherwise they would never have had this conversation. Keep your chin up 0p, people are ignorant and if they don't like you walk away and find someone who does. And if even though your mother did this the wrong way you can see what she's saying and agree with parts of it then work on that ok? I hope that your day improves. ;-)
It doesn't matter what anybody else thinks of you as long as you are comfortable with who you are.
I disagree to this one (but not totally because sometimes people are really just full of sh-t). A person can be confident with him/herself and still be a bad person. Sometimes a person's own perspective can act as a filter which lets a person highlight the good things about him/herself while neglecting to notice the bad ones. The point is that sometimes other people's perspective can act as an eye-opener to things we never notice in our own.
