what does this mean?

When someone says that person doesnt respect you... what does that mean? My mom does this a lot, when she feels my brother or husband or father says something wrong to me... she says they dont respect me. I feel really bad when she says this... like what is wrong with that they dont have respect for me... when in actuality they really do love me and just get upset for some reason but my mom has to make it into this all emcompassing theory of them not having respect for me. Or am I just being too sensitive about it?

Re: what does this mean?

For what it's worth, I think you're definitely taking the right attitude. Of course your relatives love and respect you, no matter what silly comments they may make! I can't understand why your mom is saying doesn't make any sense, and I can't see how it would make you feel anything but sad and confused. Maybe it's just her misguided way of showing loyalty and standing up for any event, she's the one with the wacky interpretation of things, not you, unless your relatives are being unusually cruel or critical. But I really wouldn't worry about it. Next time she brings it up, I'd suggest telling her that you'd like if she'd refrain from such comments in the future because you feel a lot of mutual love and respect between you and your other relatives. Hopefully that will put an end to it, because this doesn't sound like something worthy of her getting so worked up about unless I'm missing something big here. I'm sure your mom means well, but she needs to know that those comments are not doing any good and that they need to stop immediately. I hope that helps a little and that you can soon have this off your plate entirely, Soulster .

Re: what does this mean?

Thanks so much for your feedback. I totally agree with you in that I know she means well, I think in her own weird way, but I just dont know what to make of it. I mean, heck, its not like I am a prostitute or something which could qualify me into the lack of respect from others category I guess I am always the underdog, not so outspoken, reserved person, that could work on my self confidence a bit... so maybe she feels because of this I am not getting this supposedly deserved respect from others that I should had I not been myself ... the clincher was when she started telling me my own husband didnt respect me... and I know that is not true in any sense of the word... anyway, I feel much better today... again, thanks for your words.
