I'm having a lot of issues with my daughter. She's angry and rather bitter at me for some mistakes I've made. One was, I had a drinking problem for a few years, and while I no longer do, she still throws it at me. In text, and on facebook. I've made mistakes. I admit it. I've messed up. I know it. But my kids ALWAYS had a home. Clean clothes, food and a safe place to live. Sounds like rationalizing doesn't it. But it's still true. Now, she's living with her father. Everything is my fault. Her attitude, her problems, even her depression. I don't know how to deal with her. What to say when she's lashing out. I'm trying. I love my daughter with all my heart, and would do almost anything to get us "square". If it was just between us I could deal with things. But she posts things on public forums, and on a shared account with her boyfriend. Everything is public. Every time she's pissy, every mean comment, every nasty thing. She posts it public. It hurts. It all hurts. What she says, public and private. I'm lost. I love my girl. I would never ever stop talking to her, stop trying. But I'm at a loss on how to get through to her.View Thread
