Subject: I completely understand... - [Edit Post] 1 0
My mother is just terrible in that way. I 'get' that it is par for the course for a career teacher/principle, but our relationship has become off putting to me because of it.
My way of handling it has become very blunt... when she does it, I call her on it. If she gives me attitude, I let her know that I will exit the relationship until such a time as she relents that behavior.
Now, she isn't happy about this. But, she wants a relationship. I do, too... but under the terms that it isn't unpleasant for me.
The point I am getting is... I clearly and absolutely lay out the terms I will accept in order for her to have a relationship.
