I understand what you mean feeling stepped on and like a kid again. I'm sorry you feel like this around your mum.

My therapist suggests that I remind myself who I am. I'm an adult, a mother with two children with a job. I can take care of myself and I can control situations as I see fit. I can leave a conversation and I can choose to do whatever I like.

In this position it is ridiculous to allow myself be controlled by my mother. When I let my mother revert me to my child state, it's very easy to fall in the belief that I am nothing.

Take care and lots of hugs.
