My mother hates that I look like my dad and it’s depressing me

Dear Kate,
I’m 17 years old young boy and living with my mom. Everyday I’m depressed and frustrated until some of the time I use a razor and cut myself.
My mom constantly curses me and tell me she hates me cause I look like my father too much.
Now it’s becoming worse that make me feel to kill myself please help me to get over the frustration.

Depressed
Dear Depressed,
No matter how much pain you’re experiencing right now, you’re not alone. As a matter of fact, some of the finest, most admired, needed, and talented people have been where you are now.
Many of us have thought about taking our own lives when we’ve felt overwhelmed by depression and devoid of all hope.
But the pain of depression can be treated and hope can be renewed.
No matter what your situation, there are people who need you, places where you can make a difference, and experiences that can remind you that life is worth living.
You need to speak to your mother about what her actions are doing to you. If you feel afraid or embarrassed write her a letter. Leave it on her bed. 
If your mother is any good mother at all she will listen to you and find a way to change her behavior towards you.
If that doesn’t work then speak with your teacher who can refer you to a professional.
 It takes real courage to face death and step back from the brink. You can use that courage to face life, to learn coping skills for overcoming depression, and for finding the strength to keep going.
KATE

  2. Sad this scenario is more common than people realize. “You just like your father” I know of a case where a mother let someone else raise her son because he reminded her too much of his father. Why should a child have to pay for the “regrets” of adults? Madness!!

  3. Dear Son,
    Please remember that you were never given a choice when, to whom or where to be born. The choice you have now is what to do now that you are here. Whenever your mom equates you/your looks to that of your dad, forgive her. If it is he is no longer in the picture, talk to someone who is able to relate. If he is in the picture, ask him to speak with her about her reaction.
    Life is no bed of roses. Take time to see the beauty in everything.

  4. I wonder who she would like you to look like- someone you’re not related to?? At least you have the right Father,some dont.. She is heartless to tell you she hates you for looking like a man she obviously once loved,although I do not think she hates you at all,instead she may have been hurt by your father and its just painful to see his reminder daily.You’re 17years old and have your entire life ahead of you,please do not let that one disappointment in life cause you to take your life. You must have some family member you can speak to and do not forget you always have JESUS.She must have been behaving this way to you for sometime now,if you endured then you can now.Focus on your education and and your future before you know it,you will be an Adult and able to stand on your own. Life is too precious and there are many who would give anything to be in your shoe instead of been in some institution hooked up to machines.Depression is real,if you constantly feels depressed regardless of why you think you do,seek professional help.Speak to your teacher and let them help you get the help you need.. God bless you,and I wish you all the best for the future.
