She Owns the Family
I got a Christmas card from my mother.
I opened and read it out of my curiosity but it will be in the trash. I won't respond. I considered a sarcastic response, but then thought better of it. Don't break no contact!
Such odd things written in these cards. This one was your basic blase' Christmas card with a Santa Claus and some elves on it. I haven't gotten into deep theological discussions with my mother regarding what I believe about Christmas.
She does see the family as a total entity which she 'owns'.
"We hope you and ****** are doing well. We pray each day that you will come back to the family"
Like I left a cult or the mob behind.
The same family that even when I had been no contact, hadn't seen me in almost 6 years and planned the annual family get-together during a time of year I was totally housebound. The same family that treated me like I was invisible in the room. What is there to go back to?
It's funny really but that sentence shows her narcissistic sense of self in her being the MATRIARCH of "the family".
When Scapegoats Are Ostracized By An Entire Family
Mini-Me sent her pictures of her trophies [cough] children on a picture Christmas card.
None of the young members of the family are like me, they are all skinny and the most obedient non-rebelling teenagers on the face of the earth. It doesn't look like my luck with them will be any different.
