I live with my elderly mom, and she is and always has been very critical. I have a few friends who come over and when they leave, she always has something to say about them. They are too fat, or too much of a know-it-all, or whatever. I did say to her this morning, "Well you have never liked any of my or my siblings friends". She said nothing to my comment. She doesn't have very many friends of her own, and always had been a loner. It is also difficult to put up with her criticism. Nothing is ever good enough, nor will it ever be. Do you have any suggestions for me?
