Anonymous asked: One morning, my mom looked at me and asked "Why are your lips so big?". Trust me, she wasn't teasing. For one, I'm black so it's common. Secondly, I look like her. I don't know why she says these things to me and wonders why I don't have confidence.
Moms sometimes forget the huge amount of power they have over their kids. If they even critique themselves in the mirror when their kids are growing up, it makes massively insecure children. You need to let her know she really hurt your feelings, and you take the things she says seriously. Don’t yell or throw a fit, just sit down and talk with her when you both have free time.
