My mother needs to be right and feels threatened when something happens where she is not in control. If I try to explain, she shuts me down. If I don’t say anything, she pouts. I can’t talk to her about anything except what she eats and what she’s wearing today. Anything else makes her emotionally charged and angry. Being with her is a chore. Should I just not engage at all? How long can I stand that kind of one-sided relationship?
