Nick, 19, says he has no relationship with his mother, Angie, and he blames it on his stepdad Jerry. The teen says that after he and Jerry got into a physical altercation when Nick was 14, his mother took Jerry’s side and he felt like he had no one to turn to.
“I then knew that I had no mom to go to, no stepdad to go to. I was on my own at that point,” Nick says. “I want my mom to realize that she’s hurt me. I feel like I’m the black sheep of the family.”
In the video above, Nick breaks down as tells his mother that he desperately wants to have a relationship with her.
“You think I don’t appreciate what you do. You think I just don’t care that I’m this person that has no feelings at all for you, that just wants you to fall in a hole or that just wants you to die, and I love you more than anything, and I want a relationship with you. I would die for a relationship with you,” Nick says to his mother with tears in his eyes. “I miss my best friend, Mom. I want you back.”
Nick continues, “I’m tired of always having to go through [Jerry] to see you. I’m tired of going through life alone. I never had you to go to. I know I don’t make it easy. I know I say stuff I shouldn’t. I’m sorry. I love you, Mom.”
