Re: Codep Mother - Help me set boundaries
I understand exactly where your coming from...and it's an awful place !!! I don't know how to fix it either...people say " you just have to tell her" ...well, much easier said than done, rite? But I do know that if you don't do it now it only gets harder...my mom is 88 an still lays the guilty on me....it makes me feel like a child. I can't hurt her now...imagine !!! I'd be the biggest a**hole in the world....I wish I had done something about it many many years ago......what if you try not excepting an invitation or offer from her and say .." I can't ma...you'll just hold it against me later...." Or something like that? I wish you luck....sorry I wasn't much help, but know your not alone !!!!
