Mental and emotional manipulation from my Mother
Hi there. You've come to a safe and supportive place to share, so welcome.
I'm really sorry that your mum has said those things to you. Mental illness is difficult, but that's no excuse for saying those things. You're obviously very independent and motivated to have moved and gone to university, so well done to you. I hope uni study is going well for you 🙂
What do you say/do when your mum says hurtful things to you? Are you able to have a conversation with her about how those things make you feel?
You're definitely not selfish for pursuing your own interests and moving forward with your life, and you're not worthless either. I hope you know those things to not be true.
Please pop back and chat when you're up to it. Kind thoughts, Katy
