Whew this may be a bit long but here goes nothing. I’m 28 years old with a 9 yr old son. Currently living @ home with my mom and a few others. My mom has been out of work for a few years now. Myself and another party in the household are splitting the bills. She still wants to act like she’s the authoritative figure and gives me no respect as an adult who contributes. She makes myself and others feel less than at times. My personal life is sometimes intercepted and I feel like I have no privacy. I’m now a women who needs her own space for herself and her child. However if I do leave, I know she won’t be able to afford paying half the bills so I dont want to do that to her out of respect and consideration. I know it would also be hard going out there on my own to raise a child as a single parent but I made a pretty decent career for myself. She helped me raise my son , since I was a young teen mother. So sometimes certain things are thrown in my face (what she did for me, how I’m unappreciative, etc) but I feel she uses that more because she knows she can’t provide the way she used to. Am I being selfish and ungrateful for wanting to flee for what I now feel is a toxic lifestyle? I’m super depressed, anxious etc and just don’t know what to do at this point. I’m scared to speak up sometimes because I know it will turn into a huge argument with her and I’m for the most part a peace maker. I have stood up for myself plenty of times but I’m learning to just let things be since she is my mother. She hasn’t been motivated to look for work, so everybody has just let her be. I think she has this mentality of I took care of you , so now it’s your turn to take care of me. Any thoughts ? Suggestions? Ideas? I feel so stuck and don’t know what to do with my life.
