Mom is mad that I am not following her manual


Hi LCS,

My mom stated she feels stressed about a situation involving one of my siblings. When she talked to me about it and I didn’t share her opinion, she became angry at me (her words) and stated that “she feels that I don’t care.” I am fine with her holding this thought since I am not seeking her approval. However, I am not sure how to interact with her moving forward. My thought is she has a manual for me and is upset that I am not following the manual. I believe I am asking the LCS on how to set an appropriate boundary for this type of situation. I am fine holding space for her during this period and I do feel that it is unfortunate that she appears to be suffering because of her thoughts. However, I am not going to “join in” with her rumination on this matter (my thoughts).

Thanks in advance for your wisdom!
