I don’t want a relationship with this woman

My mother is a borderline narcissist.  She also has a blood borne disease that she’s been preaching for 10 years will kill her soon.  She has recently tried to re enter my life through my aunt.  I don’t want a relationship with this woman because I know dipping my toe back in will give her power to hurt me again and also my daughter…  I don’t want to forget her cruelties…  As far as forgiving goes, I have but have accepted that she can move on with her life and I, with mine.  Even if it means the rest of my family shuns me for refusing to go to her I’m fine.  Do you think I’m making the right decision?

  1. YES!

    Great to hear from someone who has learned from it all and moved on. Carry on protecting yourself and your daughter.

  2. I cut ties with my bio family (mother and brother) for 13 years to protect myself and my children. As an adult, my youngest wanted the family together for one of her birthdays-which was about 2 years ago. It was awkward, still is, but our relationship is different now because I’m different. Do what you feel is best, but work on your wounds. You will be better for it.
