The issue for me is "daughter guilt". My mom lives with me. Does not socialize. She is sweet as can be, but she doesn't talk beyond the weather or food. Why do I feel guilty and angry? I am recently widowed and I feel that if she doesn't have a "life" then I don't. I do get away once in a while and leave her meals and have others check in on her...I hate this guilt. I miss the days when I would go to HER house once a week, go to lunch, shopping and back to HER house for tea, kiss her good bye and go home.
