My mom has the emotional maturity of an 8 year old. My 16 yr old cousin is a spoiled brat, and she called my mom a "scumbag" a couple of days ago when they were fighting.
Right now my mom is screaming and crying to my aunt on the phone in the other room, crying because my cousin hurt her feelings and "needs to apologize". She took my cousin being mean to her seriously. My cousin isn't a normal teenager, shes really insecure and fucked up, and belittles people to attempt to control them,and to compensate for past neglect.
But the point is, my mom is emotionally immature and unstable. She literally acts like a child...Im shaking my head and she is sobbing like a 4 year old in the next room.
She goes in another room because she is scared of me saying anything. I will tell her to not judge people and to not take it seriously, but she does. Sometimes i get annoyed and say something i shouldn't....i guess.
How does one go about dealing with this bullshit? I want to help her, but she is extremely resistant to change. Im a psychology student, but thats it, a student. I dont know anything...I give her advice, i give my dad advice, they dont listen or respect anything i say.
How can i get through to emotionally immature and unstable people???????????? Its so fucking annoying. Im ENTP.
