We received the following message yesterday:
Hi, thank you for your blog post. I Connect with it so deeply. I am in my mid 30s and a mother to a 6 year old. My mother constantly undermines me, talks down to me and bullies me with passive aggression. She also makes me feel like I am ungrateful (I am adopted, I should say).
The problem is, I have cut her out of my life for the past year but my daughter asks for her daily and says how much she misses her. I let them see each other and my mother spoiled her and gave her everything and fed her whatever she wanted and was completely cold to me. Its like she wants my daughter on her side to go against me.
Its horrible. If I cut her off for my sake, my daughter is devastated. I feel so stuck!
Any advice you could give would really help.
All the best to you on your journey as well.
