Giving others the power to control how I feel


I feel resentful and bitter towards my parents . They wronged me in some aspects and were controlling of my life. They arranged my marriage and I wasn’t allowed to have a say. This behaviour was still prevalent in my culture but not that common. I am not living with them since I got married 15 years ago. I don’t want to have contact with them. Is it possible that I don’t give them power over how I feel?
