Either mom wants you to visit and you keep dragging your feet or you have committed to a visit with mom and you find yourself feeling anxious as the time draws near.
The thing is, you don’t know exactly what happens to make you feel so bad during a visit. You just know you are dreading it.
The traps are laid and you know you will get ensnared in one if you aren’t very careful. To avoid another disastrous visit requires careful planning.
You need to know what is happening right underneath the surface that makes you feel so powerless.
The guilt. The judgment. The powerlessness.
How do you counteract these feelings?
It isn't enough just to say, " Set healthy boundaries." You need to prepare your mindset, to anticipate the pitfalls of a visit with your difficult mother.
You may not be able to change her but you can come away feeling proud of yourself.
Let me help you.
