The closer it got to Mother’s Day the more people posted. I know I did. My DH’s behaviours became worse as the day drew nearer as he anticipated seeing his mother’s face in three years even if it was by video call. The ensuing nonsense from his brother and mother really brought a lot of old feelings back. Luckily it went well but not before her dominance over her sons had been established
Who out there, like me hate and dread all these specific days like Mothers Day, birthdays and CHRISTMAS!!!!! and the unhappiness and chaos it brings with it
How many of us are looking after parents and others we really don’t like. Perhaps even hate? How many of us, like me have done this, even in the past and are having to also endure the absolute negativity, hatred, manipulation and open combativeness from various family members who don’t do a thing to help?
Then there are the circling vultures waiting for the person to drop off the perch and already putting their plans into place to rip of other beneficiaries and through all this WE are expected to be calm and “nice” and NEVER lose our $hit
How do we do it?
