I have been in a situation where my parents have been taking advantage of me to enable their mental health and disfunction issues…But lately I know that I need to set boundaries and live my own life but they have such manipulation and control over me.
My mom can certainly be manipulative, and I hate her for it. But I think that’s the trick. You probably really dislike your parents, and because of that anger and hate towards them, their words hurt more. Try to ease your feelings of anger, as the less meaning you give their harmful words, the less they’ll hurt. I wish you the best of luck.
