내 엄마 땜에 진짜 못 살아 is an expression I learned from the movie 친정엄마. I find this expression really useful. Especially today!
I noticed that my mom is depressed lately and keeps thinking and blabbering about our financial problems. And I HATE it!
We are really very different. I’m the type who opts to stay quiet. I worry and I think a lot too. But I don’t show it to anyone, not talk about it. I opt to stay positive and just continue fighting. It’s very difficult for me to show my feelings to anyone. But my mom often sulk and pity herself. And more than that, she keeps talking and talking and talking about the same things.
And in a time like this when deadlines are knocking on my door and exams are looming above my head and I have so much to do, think about and write about it doesn’t really help! Times like this I wish I’m staying in a boarding house or dormitory instead.
아 진짜! 내 엄마 땜에 정말 못 살아!
Don’t get me wrong though. I love my mom so much. 내가 세상에서 제일 사랑하는 건 엄마예요. That’s why I so love the movie 친정엄마. I believe it really captures mother-daughter relationships. I love my mom, but sometimes she just gets on my nerves!
미안해 엄마… 사랑해, 정말 사랑해…
