My mom and I barely speak together anymore (since 5th grade).
She had gotten addicted to a phone app for singing. Now the majority of our conversations is about music.
My taste in music is different from her’s. We clash a lot. Whenever she listens to my music, she complains. She calls it ‘crazy’ music.
Most of the time, I try to ignore this. I usually let her listen to her music without complaining. But it drives me crazy sometimes.
My music means a lot to me. It cheers me up and helps me whenever I’m down. So I’ve tried to give her the meanings of my songs, but she said, “I can’t take this anymore!” Basically exclaiming my music was crap. She wasn’t willing to listen to it.
Now, her singing app. Sometimes she wants me to collab with her, but I refuse unless its one of the songs I listen to. She then makes some snide remarks about me being the person in the wrong who won’t suck up and do something with her.
It drives me crazy. My head hurts and my heart feels like it’s sinking. I’m probably the one who’s wrong since I’m so stubborn. But at the same time, I never really wanted to sing because my voice is terrible.
Last time I sang with her. She wanted to use autotune on my voice which made me really upset and depressed. Like I wasn’t good enough for her and she was only using me for likes and follows.
Now, I’m the one who’s always initiating interactions with her. She spends most of her time sleeping or on her phone. Everyday feels worse.
