My Mom Hasn't Spoken To Me For A Year Because I Betrayed Her

  • Published on Mar 15, 2019

    This is Sam. He doesn’t feel that great about the story he’s going to tell you right now, or more precisely about the way events took a turn after he did what he did. It happened around a year ago when he was 13, and he probably should have made a different decision. Anyway, this is how it happened.
    Sam began to feel like his mom didn’t saw him as her little boy anymore after his twin baby sisters were born. She began expecting a lot of help from him all the time, starting with babysitting, and assisting her with house work. Of course, it’s normal to help your parents, but his mom didn’t let him do the stuff he used to do or was supposed to do at his age at all, like playing video games or hanging out with friends. She kept saying that he was a future grown-up man and that he had to start being supportive right now. Luckily, his dad thought the exact opposite. He would help Sam with the work that his mom gave him to do, and always tried to spend some extra time with him, asking him how he was doing. And he would say that mom was simply tired looking after two small babies at the same time, and promised that soon things would change.
    Things did indeed, when Sam’s mom took him and his sisters to her parents’ house in a town next to the city on summer vacation. He had spent almost no time with his grandparents, so he was happy to be able to go see them. His grandpa took him on fishing trips - he was an awesome fisherman, while his grandma would help his mom with the babies. After a couple of days there, his mother had almost gone back to being like she was before the twins were born. She was friendlier and nicer, and no longer forbade him from using his time however he wanted to use it. Everything was almost perfect except for one thing - his dad didn't come. He would wait for him every night, but his mom said that he had a lot of work to do. One day, it felt like she was starting to treat him like an adult again. She seemed to distance herself from Sam emotionally, and looked nervous. He was wondering what had happened, but nobody explained anything to him. Then one day he overheard his mom talking to his dad on the phone, saying she wasn’t coming back, and that all three of the children were going stay with her. She put the phone down and saw him staring at her with his eyes full of tears. She knew that this time she wasn’t going to be able to escape the conversation.
    Sam couldn’t believe his mom had done this to him and to their family. He was mad at her because she decided to take him away from his dad without even asking what he thought about all of it. She didn’t even let them say goodbye to each other. He was mad at his little sisters because if it wasn't for them, his mom wouldn’t have become so nervous and tired, and their family would probably have been ok. He was even mad at himself for being so stupid and not calling his dad on his own to ask whether he would come to see them. How was he supposed to start life again, without his school that he’d gotten used to, without his friends, without virtually anything he had back at home? Sam honestly doesn’t know why people say that the sad truth is better than a happy lie. His life was about to crash down all around him. Living there after their talk turned out to be torture. His mom kept insisting that he help her, but now he was offended by her more than ever, so he refused to do anything. He had become unintentionally rude with her and every interaction ended in a terrible fight, but he couldn’t help it, he was a lost cause. He remembers how once, he told her that no matter how hard her own life was, she was the only one to blame for the divorce. This made her cry. And all this time she wouldn’t let him call his dad, so he finally just grabbed the phone, dialed his number, and told him how unbearable his mom had become. As always, his dad tried to calm Sam down and support him, saying that he loved him and missed him, and that he wanted to be there next to him to give him a hug. And this forced him to make a tough decision.
    One night, when everybody in the house had fallen asleep, he packed up his belongings, went downstairs and called his dad, and asked him to pick him up at the bus stop nearby. At first he tried to convince him to wait until the morning, when he could come and discuss everything with him and his mom, but Sam said that he was literally about to leave the house, so he'd better hurry up. He waited for him for about an hour. But when he saw his dad, worried but happy that he had finally got to see him, his troubles seemed to disappear. The only thing he left for his mom was a text saying that he wanted to live with his father...

    Sam still hasn’t been able to make sense of his mom’s behavior, but he hopes that one day when the phone rings and he picks it up, he’ll hear his mother’s voice at the other end. Give a Like to this story and tell Sam what you would have done in his place in the comments. Maybe together we can find a way to figure everything out.

      Sam, please listen to me.
      You are Innocent. You did Nothing wrong!
      You have nothing to feel guilty about.
      Your mother is the adult. She is responsible. You did NOT betray her. You are innocent. Hopefully one day she will realize this.
      It might be hard to believe now, but You made the right decision. You did.
      Had you stayed , you would not have been able to Properly grow up into your own person.
      She was Deliberately Emotionally blackmailing , you not allowing you to have honest child reactions. When adults due this to children it inevitably gets worse.
      You became enraged over an injustice
      She deceived you, and was using you as an instrument, a tool, to hurt someone else. That's a terrible way to treat Children. She feels robbed that you took that away, but can't accept that you didn't so it to hurt her; you did it because you are human being worthy of love and dignity for yourself. When she realizes this, your relationship will repair. Even as a child you are owed some respect.
      It sounds like her own parents give her this Respect. So should she to you.
      You are brave.

    Sometimes mom's have a hard time taking care of themselves let alone children. She still loves you and your sisters. She might be depressed and needs help in communicating her feelings better. I know this personally for I had to become a single mother of three kids almost overnight. At the time 1 boy 9 and two 3 yrs old. Yes twins. I was working up to 72 hours a week. I became suicidal but only thought about it. I started pushing my children away. The way I did this is by demanding things of my oldest. Know that he was able to do this. Eventually arguments began to happen. If I had a chance to go back and start over I would.
    Keep trying to communicate with her eventually she will see clearly again and you will get the mother you remember in your pass.

    Is sad that parents rarely let the children decide with which parent they want to live and the law many times obligate the kids live with their mom, I have seen kids crying because they want to live with their father but the police don't let them!!!
    Same with some kids that want to kive with their mom and not with their dad...

    While I know that raising one kid let alone two or three kids is tough, I do agree that kids should help out their parents or in the least be given some responsibility, but at the same time, the parents shouldn't rely on their oldest kids to raise and take care of the younger ones. The older kids need some chill time as the parents do. In this video, I feel that the mom is pretty much in the wrong (I sympathize with her for needing help in raising kids and being overwhelmed). She pretty much put the responsibility of raising her twin daughters on the shoulders on a 13-year-old boy, without so much as an explanation as to what was going on between her and her husband, and expected the son to respect her and just blindly follow her orders. And I know teens can be rebellious and a little moody but usually they're easier to handle when their parents show they trust them and are honest with them. Yeah this boy's mom trusted him to be responsible and help out with his sisters and household chores but she didn't trust him enough to tell him that they were gonna leave his dad and she didn't give him a choice in the matter (most places will give preteen and teenagers the ability to choose who they want to stay with).

    So I don't blame the boy for getting upset and overwhelmed and hurt. He was practically forced to leave his dad, friends, and life behind to stay with his grandparents (who I'm sure he loved dearly).

    I couldn't help but find it a little hypocritical that his mother was almost pushing him to be an adult after his sisters were born, but kept him from the truth so he wouldn't have the option to make his own serious decision regarding who he wanted to stay with.

    Honestly I don’t think we have enough information from the story to determine anything we are just as lost as this kid is we have no idea why they got divorced Mom definitely should’ve told them that they were leaving dad and honestly I’m surprised that she was surprised by the suns reaction but she definitely needs to be the adult except the responsibility for what happened between her and her son regardless ofThe divorce and do what she can to make it right since technically she betrayed him not the other way around

    That story happened almost exactly the same to me. I was thirteen when it first happened, It wasn’t my decision on who I was going to live with and my mom loves to yell at the top at her lungs for something like the trash, and the constant yelling ate at me until I was done. I said to her “ I’m done, I want to live with dad”. And my dad picked me up a day later. It’s been a year since that happened and I can still talk with my mom.

    I’ve never had to deal with being straight up taken away from my male guardian, but one time I was tricked into staying the whole day in the city away from him by my female guardian. She was mad at him about something, still not sure what. She wouldn’t let me talk to him on the phone, even though he called probably 50 times (or it felt like it.) For all she knew, he could have been kidnapped, but it was justified because she “was the adult who worked hard all the time.” I love her with all my heart and have gotten over it, so please don’t say anything bad about her, but in the moment.... Ooh. I didn’t care if I got in a crash or not, I was ready to jump up there and knock everyone in that car *out.*
    And the craziest thing? I told him as soon as I got home, and he didn’t care. Greatest person I know.
