This woman is done with the drama that her mother brings to her family. She tried hard to help her alcoholic mom but now she needs to focus on keeping her son safe and that means staying away from Grandma!
It is a shame that some family disputes and issues result in people never speaking again. However, it can happen.-
You Can’t Choose Your Family
There is wisdom in the saying we can choose our friends but not our families. Although we love our families, sometimes some relationships are not supposed to be.
She’s Cut Her Mom From Her Life
TikToker Samantha shares a ‘story time video’ on why she is no longer speaking to her mother. In the video, she shares a personal story, with very private details, about the last time they spoke and why this situation has caused her to put an end to their relationship.
Close With Her In-Laws
Samantha created the video in response to her viewers asking why she is involved with her partner’s family but not her own. She said there will be multiple videos to discuss this matter as there is a lot of information.
Some Things Stay Private!
Yet, the majority is within this one video. Plus, she will not disclose her siblings’ names or stories as this is not her information to share.
She Wishes Things Were Different
Firstly, Samantha seems a very respectful woman, luring her audience in and making them understand her story is legitimate and equally moving as she is a kind person who probably never wanted the relationship with her mother to end.
Her Mom Was an Alcoholic
She starts by sharing that her mother became an alcoholic around 12 years ago. She started by drinking wine and wine coolers but this consumption quickly escalated into drinking Jameson, a strong whisky.
When she last spoke to her mother, she would consume around a handle of Jameson every two days.
She Tried Everything!
Samantha shares that her family tried “everything under the sun” to get their mother to stop drinking, but it was never enough.
While they were all trying to help treat her alcoholism, the mother would try to cause drama between the siblings in any way possible.
Distracted By Drama
The mother would make up stories or prefer one sibling’s company on one day and then prefer someone else another day, all due to stories she made up in her head.
Her Mom Wouldn’t Let Them Be Happy
Samantha doesn’t wish to share examples of issues her mother created because it involves her siblings. But, you can just imagine what kind of stories would arise when the mother saw everyone was happy to try and break them apart.
Mama Had a Temper!
She goes on to state that her mother loved to create drama for no reason and when she did this, she would fly off the handle and not be easy to control.
Therapy Was Recommended
Samantha suggests that her mother needed therapy and other outside help to get her alcoholism and drama issues under control. Her mother experienced personal trauma, as did her siblings, but they always refused help.
Hence, the mother never overcame her issues and instead, hindered her mental health to the point where she wanted to bring others down with her.
She Became a Jealous Grandmother
Samantha moves on to share the reason her and her mother’s relationship had to come to an end. After she had her son, her partner’s family was very active in his life.
They would plead to spend time with their grandson and as a result of this time they spent together, her mother would get jealous.
Just Two Rules to Break…
When Samantha would allow her mother to spend time with her grandson, she made two simple rules. These were to not smoke in the house and to not drink and drive with the child. These are simple and easy-to-respect rules, however, her mother did not follow through.
Simply Unsustainable and Unsafe
These boundaries were broken and the relationship came to an end. If the mother cannot respect the child, how can the daughter respect her mother?
Her Son is Better Off
It is a shame when family members act this way, but it is for the good of Samantha’s son to end her relationship with her mother until she changes her attitude.
