Why won't my mom listen to me when addressing an issue?
Me and my mom fight about the something over and over again . But when I try to sit and talk about it she rolls her eyes at me like I'm worthless then says she doesn't want to talk about it . Then she expresses her point of view and runs away for a couple hours .
It sounds like you and your mom are stuck in a cycle. The way you have been communicating is like a bad habit and it can take time to break any habit. Good for you by trying to approach your mom in a different way by trying to sit down and talk things over! If you continue to use this approach, you will feel better about yourself and you may see changes in your mom's behaviors as well.
You say you are fighting about the same issue over and over. Is is possible that what you are wanting from you mom is something she won't discuss any longer because she has already told you "no"? If this is the case then you should stop begging your mom to change her mind. You can ask her why she feels the way she does but you need to respect her decision.

ask her if she has time to talk and if she does have her sit down on the couch or something and then tell her to please listen and not to interrupt and then she can say her opinion. then go on and say what you need to and don't let he butt in.
I have the same problems too. My mom acts like she is so important. She always puts me down and makes me feel like crap. I used to wonder why she had me then I would blame myself for being a mistake. You are not alone. You can choose to prove her wrong that way,or,you can just let her be right. The only thing that matters is that your happy. I should take my own advice because I am very upset right now. You sound like you have it bad-I don't know. When I was little my mom left me at my aunts and never came back. I called the police to find her. The whole process I was either being abused or sexually touched. I didn't know what to do-I still don't! Eventually though, when your mom wants attention, she will talk to you. You could say something like, " What's the point, you don't listen anyways." That would make her want to hear more- SOME moms. If you look upset she will soon see your pain. It's weird, every time I leave the house I have a smile on my face. People ask me why am I so happy but they are so blind that they can't see the pain that lies behind my eyes. The tears that are ready to form. Take your time. Your friendship will slowly evolve with your mom one way or another. Family isn't always blood. It's the people in life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.
