    Yikes!

    Why all the ill will?

    I think a lot of you might be in "punishment mode". Mom didn't do this or that when I was growing up so now as an adult I'm going to punish you with my lack of companionship.

    Internet psychology is not your strong suit.

    After the beatings and emotional torment along with constantly letting me know that I'm not as good as my brother simply avoiding her on mother's day seems quite tame. I've often thought about being the "better person" and mending fences but I don't feel the need or obligation. She believes she is "mother if the year" so she can be happy with her delusions and my brother. I'm not "punishing" her.....I just choose to no longer punish myself by subjecting myself to her issues. :toptip:
