Growing up my grandma has always put me down for anything..
My grandma hurts my feelings so bad that i get mad to the point where I start to cry :'(
Today, we just into a bad argument cause she has my little 6 y/o cousin telling me, "that's why you should get up & quit being lazy." I found that disrespectful on her part, cause I'm not a kid, I'm bout to be 22 y/o, my 6 y/o cousin should not be talking to me like that!!! I talked to my dad told him the situation, he told me just to ignore my gma. I just want my boyfriend/hubby to get back home so we can get away from her. I love my parents, my little brother, & his girlfriend but i cant stand my gma. I believe i lost respect for her awhile back cause she would always put me down. My dad always stood for me but even though I'm grown, i can only say so much to her.....
I FEEL LIKE ONE DAY IM GOING TO SNAP!!!!!

You don't. I would not have tolerated her telling a 6 year old to tell you that. In front of Grandma I would have told your cousin 'That is a very rude way to talk to people. If you talk to people like that they aren't going to want to be around you anymore.'

I would be cutting Grandma out of my life as soon as possible... especially if this has been an ongoing issue w/ her.
