please know that most people do not view their parent's as a source of fear and terror but a source of unconditional love

I find this thought mindblowing and very helpful.

Our mothers ARE NOT NORMAL SO NORMAL SOCIAL EXPECTATIONS DO NOT APPLY. So true.

I am glad the post helped you, I love the comment about normal social expectations do not apply. I often use that as a reminder to myself when my NM starts to try to hoover me in. She is slick in how she goes about it and she knows what situations to use this in.....but your right the rules don't and can't apply to my NM, this is so because she constantly changes, bends, and twists the rules and uses my normal human desire to follow the rules to exploit me. Wishing you all the best  ;)
