My mom has challenged me every step of the way since I have stopped my relationship with my abusive dad. I have made changes in my life to become a better person, mother and wife. I have been told "you changed!", "you're selfish, all you are caring about is yourself" , "you live in a bubble", "I cant believe what I am hearing" , "your husband should've stood up and talked with your dad". This separation from my abusive dad is about a year now. Only two weeks ago these were comments made to me. It's either over the phone or she comes to my home. I have been in therapy this entire time. She is making our relationship very difficult for me. It's hard for me to call her, or to make any sort of plans when my heart isnt in it. I used to really enjoy her company ..now I am filled with anxiety when my phone/doorbell rings. And yes I have talked with her about how this has effected our relationship and how we should move forward. Same result. Any thoughts on this would be helpful.
