‘My mother is a controlling, manipulative, narcissistic person'
Tell Me About It: I have lived abroad for 10 years and she still tries to manipulate me
It seems that her resentment leads to your resentment and all that is achieved is a lifetime of frustration and bitterness.
I’m 31-years-old and I have always had a difficult relationship with my mother. She is a controlling, manipulative, narcissistic person.
Growing up, her bad moods, aggressiveness and controlling behaviour made my teenager years very unhappy. She wanted to choose my friends, decide what kind of clothes I used, who I should date – she wanted to control all aspects of my life. While my father was able put up with this behaviour, I always resisted her in my own ways.
