It's Always My Fault...

Ever since I was a very small girl, my mother has somehow managed to suggest that I had so many failings and each and every one of them was my fault......I wasn't pretty enough/clever enough/smart enough...and fifty odd years later anything she can find fault with...she is 93...she will and does....for some odd reason it's my fault if my beloved husband hasn't sent her the photos he promised/there is a postal strike/bad weather....always the same complaint...."I really think you should have done something dear"   as if I am personally responsible for the fact that snow is blanketing most of the UK...I know...we all have mothers...and fathers for that matter, getting on in years and becoming a bit unreasonable...but it doesn't make it any easier..x

She doesn't sound like a mother, i don't blame your husband for not writing her. I think you should cut her off, she seems really negative and you don't need that negativity in your life.
