The 4 Stages of Fighting with Your Mom

As a betch, you’ve probs been fighting with your mom since she woke you from your nap in her womb. I mean, think back to middle school. With all the shit you pulled, it’s amazing that she did not throw your 13 year old ass out of the house for being such a sassy bitch. Even so, all those teenage years helped us perfect the mother-daughter fighting cycle. Here are the four stages of fighting with your mom.

1. The set off

Fights with our moms rarely start over anything important.

Example 1: Your mom forgot/didn’t do something she was supposed to because she’s old as fuck/doesn’t give a shit.

You: Why did you buy Coke Zero? I asked you to buy Diet Coke.

Mom: Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot.

You: God, mom, you always do this!!

Example 2: Your mom, knowing the sneaky bitch that you are tries calling you out onyour shit. The best way to deal with this is to blame someone else or turn it around on her without answering the question.

Mom: I was looking at the credit card billandwondering who spent $500 at Bliss Spa this month.

You: Why don’t you fucking ask Jamie! You always blame me first! Now I’m going to have to talk to my therapist about how your blatant favoritism is ruining my life and you’re going to have to foot the bill!

Example 3: Your mom attempts to make you get your shit together.

In the rare case a fight does start over something important, it will be because your mom asked any variation of the what are you doing with your life? question. I don’t know mom, what are you doing with yours!? In her defense, betches can be so afraid of this question that we often assume she’s asking it even when she’s, like, not.

Mom: Hi, Honey, what are your plans for this afternoon?

You: Leave me alone. Why do you always put so much pressure on me!? GOD!

2. Rehashing things from the past

The rehashing stage almost always starts with the phrase This is so typical! or you always do this!! Then it’s on. Prepare to be reminded of every fight you two have had since like, 2nd grade. The time you got caught sneaking out in high school, the time your mom forgot to pick you up from dance class, and the drinking ticket you got freshman year are all topics that will be brought up during this stage of the mother-daughter fight. It’s no longer on my record, Mom! Let it go!! The best way to annoy your mom during this phase of the fight is to try and make her feel like she’s the maniac while putting a large emphasis on the end of yourwords. Mom you need to relaxxxxxxx you’re driving everyone around you insaneeeee.

Note: The more emphasis you place on the end of the word chilllllllllllll the more likely your mom will be to look into how to get you out of your dad’s will.

3. Separation

You storm off to your room, to your car, to the mall, wherever. Just make sure you make a dramatic exit. Once by yourself, and maybe after you’ve popped a Xanax, you’ll realize how much of a raging bitch you were. Time to suck it up and apologize, betch. If the fight was really bad, you can always just blame it on your PMS. Note that if you’re going to apologize it’s important to overdo it. Make sure to tell your mom how much you love her and appreciate everything she does for you. Be sure to top it all off with a mention that she looks like, soooo thin lately. There’s no point in apologizing for no fucking reason. This will ensure you get a bonding trip to Saks and a mani/pedi. The make up shopping spree is to fights with your mom what makeup sex is to fights with your boyfriend.

4. Ending it

Unless you’re one of those psychos who fights with their mom for like years, mother-daughter fights usually only last a couple of hours. The beautiful thing is, while a bestie might hold a grudge if you, like, call her a psycho bitch, your mom will ultimately forgive you since she loves you. Plus youliterally came out of her so she’s eventually going to forget that you totalled her car.She’s also spent way too much time raising you to stop talking to you now. Once the sorrys are said, everything is overthat is, until the next time she has the nerve toschedule brunch with your grandma on a Sunday at 11 amor like, ask you to get a job. Sure your mom isn’t a regular mom she’s a cool mom but that doesn’t mean you can’t occasionally tell her to GTFO of your room, no matter how much time and money she’s spent decorating it.

6 Things That Got Better In The 6 Months Following My Breakup

I read somewhere that to get over a breakup, it takes about half the duration of time your relationship lasted.

My most recent relationship ended after a little over a year, so for me, I am quickly approaching that mark. But our unofficial relationship dates back years. So do I get more time?

How long does it actually take to get over someone?

According to Drake, it takes forever because ~you never really stop loving someone~. You either never did, or always will.

Am I over my relationship? Have I TRULY moved on? I cant really answer that.

But it has been half a year since Ive been in it, and Id like to reflect on some of the changes that have happened in this time.

1. Overall Mood

I missed this Marissa, said an old college friend of mine when she came to visit me during my breakup. I thought, Um what does that even mean? Ive always been this Marissa.

Or had I?

Relationships change you. Sometimes for the better, but unfortunately, sometimes for the worse.

My ex is not a horrible human who abused me or tried to make me something I was not. I dont wish bad upon him because, well, he is someone I still love very much.

When I look back on our relationship, however, I realize he changed me in ways that werent so good for me.

I am a pretty outgoing, happy person overall, but I never felt good enough for my boyfriend. He often made me doubt myself, instead of lifting me up.

Spoiler alert: this is the complete opposite of what a boyfriend should be doing.

I constantly questioned his intentions, but this was beyond trust issues. What I mean by this is I was always asking, Does he really love me? Why hasnt he texted me today? Am I good enough for him?

I had been in a previous relationship where I had no doubt of my partners feelings because we were very open with each other.

My most recent boyfriend, however, never had been in a serious relationship. This hurt us a lot.

I felt like I couldnt talk to him about how I was feeling, literally ever. I wasnt myself. I was always sad, and always trying to hide that sadness. I knew it, and so did those closest to me.

When we broke up, a slight weight was lifted off my shoulders.

I missed him; I was sad; I cried (a lot). I still feel these things at times, but guess what? I am good enough.

I dont doubt myself or feel obligated to prove my worth to anyone. Im always just doin me (love you, Drizzy).

And I place the blame on me (partially) for letting myself be with a person who made me feel anything less than amazing, for not speaking up every time I should of and for letting someone elses actions hindermy own.


2. Self-Confidence

I hate to say the word dumped because I knew the end of the relationship was coming. He just had the guts to pull the trigger first.

However, getting dumped actually BOOSTED my confidence. I never wanted to admit it, but my boyfriend essentially made me more self-conscious than beautiful and loved.

I cant remember the nicest thing he ever said to me. Quite frankly, he was a man of few kind words. I received the good morning, beautiful text messages whenever he knew he fuckedup.

He never praised my appearance, outfits or body.

One night around the holidays, I attended a work event of his. Its important to note that I am the polar opposite of a girly girl. And I may not be a size 0, Instagram model, trendy chick, but I think of myself as attractive (not to mention, awesome AF) young woman.

I had received one of those in-store Sephora makeovers as a gift for Christmas. I thought this was a great way to get someone else to do the work, and my guy would be able to show me off to all his co-workers.

When he saw me that night, the first thing he blurted out was WHOA thats a bit much. Bruh

In all, my ex just wasnt good at making me feel good.

I dont know ifit was his lack of finding the right words and the right moment, or if he just really didnt think much of me,but I dont care anymore.

When I became single, I started going on dates, flirting at bars and feeling like my old, cool, college self (just way less promiscuous and way more mature, thankfully).

And even though I wasnt genuinely interested in literally any of these new guys, the newfound attention helped me get back on my horse and remember that Im a bomb ass catch.


3. My Body And Fitness Commitment

No, I didnt drop 20 poundsto spite my ex and show him what hes missing.

Yes, there was a short period of time where I had no appetite because of the horrible sadness and grief, and I dropped weight quickly. But that also ended quickly because, well, food is amazing and pizza exists.

However, binge eating while watching Netflix on a Friday night in just isnt as much fun (or socially acceptable, unfortunately) to do alone.

So with a decrease in midnight snacking and eating out, mixed with an increase in cooking for myself and actually sleeping enough at night, I did loose a little bit of weight.

Instead of skipping the gym to hang with bae, I had much more free time to focus on me.I put working out back on top of my list of daily priorities.

Currently, Im training for a half marathon. I run at least 5 miles a day.

This all definitely aided my newfound self-confidence, except the best part is that it isnt to get him back. Its because I look AND feel better.


4. Friendships

When youre in a relationship, its very easy to loose sight of your priorities.

You want to spend all of your time with this person. You forget there are other people whocare about you, and whom you care about, as well.

I like to think I did a pretty decent job at balancing my friends and my boyfriend, but when it came down to it, I was guilty of more often than not picking him over them. It was comfortable, safe and easy to spend all of my time with him.

Lucky for me, I hadnt damaged my friendshipstoo much while in my relationship. When the relationship ended, I always wanted to be doing something to distract myself.

I wanted to go out more, meet new people and just have fun. I was always making plans with friends, texting them more and overall, I was being a better friend.

It was only after becoming single again that my eyes were opened to how truly damaging a significant other can be to friendships if you arent careful.

I was thankful that my friends were there for me because, when it comes down to it, hoes before bros. Always.


5. My Strength

I forgot to mention the part where my boyfriend left me while we were living in a city four hours away from my hometown, closest friends and family.

I had no idea how I was going to survive in that place alone. I could count on one hand how many people I felt like I could rely on where I lived. I had no choice but to get my shit together.

I didnt have time to feel sorry for myself. I didnt let my world crumble just because he was no longer in it.

The quote you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have is a bit dramatic for my situation, but it applies.

Because when the time came to be strong, it really wasnt so hard.

It might havehelped that while we were together, I was already conditioned into barely being able to rely on him emotionally.

Yeah, I was lonely at times. I suffered many anxiety and panic attacks, butI handled it. I put my big girl pants on, and I survived.


6. My expectations for future relationships

People come into your life as a lesson or a blessin. And I have definitely learned my lesson.

Settling is actually bullshit.

Why ever settle for someone average, when you could be getting extraordinary?

I really dont know what I was thinking. I would never get back into a relationship like the one I was in under those circumstances.

So, why did I hold onto a person who was doing me more harm than good for so long? Probably (definitely) because he was truly my best friend.

In fact, we were best friends for years before we dated. But I will make new friends, and I will meet new lovers.

Maybe we wont have the same stupid sense of humor or taste in music. Maybe no one will ever be as compatible for me as my ex once was. But at least they wont make me feel belittled.

Maybe they will actually be proud to call me theirs; maybe theyll surprise me with flowers here and there and be a loving romantic. Who knows, but Im hoping I find out soon.

I guess themoral of my story is that whether or not you have moved on from a past relationship, and despite how much time has passed, I bet you something good has come from this time you have been apart.

You just need to figure out what that is, and use it.
