I use to feel bad but not anymore. Took a long time to realize some people don't deserve my time or emotions. For my inlaws. Shame on your narcissism. Learn to behave like an adult. My husband can't even stand you. Terribly sad how you all treat him. Your only brother,your only son. Time to apologize and be an adult.
my habit. this is my survival. this is how i became the best possible mother i could be to my own children. everything that i witnessed through out my entire life from my great grandmother, grandmother, and mother was twisted, evil, controlling, pure nastiness. each and every one of these women treated their own daughters with horrible hate. narcissistic mothers destroy their own families. i walked away. i am the black sheep. i am recovering. no contact. love those who love you.
You are allowed to terminate your relationship with toxic family members. You are allowed to walk away from people who hurt you. You are allowed to be angry & selfish & unforgiving & don't owe anyone an explanation for taking care of you.
