really wears me out at times!
the problem is they have to listen to people's problems?
also knowing when to advise and when its best just to comfort and soothe.
sensitivity is also vital
and i am always there for my friends! I just had to let off steam!
but its (one thing) that friends are for
mothers are for confiding
and she doesn't know the all important when to advise and when to comfort
(she admits this all herself, im not being a horrible daughter)
also somethings you can't talk to your mother about.
annoyed me a bit earlier as our mum is having treatment for breast cancer and my sis came in crying about the mess some workman fitting her kitchen has made and she said she nearly had a panic attack over some dirt on the carpet. its very trivial in comparison
this is a bit hypocritical of me mind you as there is no bigger whinger than me!
