My mom gets into a habit where whenever I tell her something bothers me or how it affects me she immediately claims I’m guilt tripping her.
I tell her “I don’t like it when people raise there voice at or around me,
it causes me to have an anxiety attack and I would appreciate it if you would avoid doing that please” (yes this is how I talk to people in these kinds of conversations I try to pick
my words carefully) and she immediately goes to “well there’s no need to guilt trips me”
I can’t seem to get through to her that there is a difference with telling someone how I feel or how something affects me vs guilt tripping someone.
It’s so exhausting
