Armenia you can't change your mom views. If she is so depressing you have to find a way to block her out. My mom is the same way. Very depressing! And physically abusive! It took me a long time to figure out how to keep her opinions from controlling my life. She would always tell us (my siblings and I) that you're going to have a hard life. We would have to hear this almost everyday, and because she said this for years I think I believed it and my life was hard to deal with. Im just starting to get better I no longer talk to her because she still haven't changed but I got over wanting her to change who she was for me. I wish I knew then what I know now. I would have told her that Im sorry you had such a hard time when you were growing up. But I want to remain optimistic about my future and maybe things will be different for me. But if she the type of person thats violent you could invision a button with the word eject and when she starts in with the depressing statements mentally hit the reject button. Meditate after dealing with her! You will be fine and grow from this I did!
