Re: Am I crazy or is this emotional abuse?
Hey Phoenix, thanks for your kind messages. Also, I am sorry for my slow replies, I did not get any alerts concerning this thread and so thought no one had replied to it. Yours and everyone's replies have been a great comfort to me during a distressing time, I am happy to say I have managed to begin putting more boundaries in place and have emotionally distanced myself from my mother and her behavior over the past week has been reasonable , even lovely for the most part and I am finding myself asking "is she really that bad?" "Maybe it is all me". I'm not sure, I can forgive but I can't let myself forget.
