Looking for those over 50 to please answer. The constant nitpicky criticism is emotionally draining & exhausting. Condescending, rude, hyper-critical means I can't have a normal conversation with Ma because she has no insight and just gets incredibly defensive. She is still the only mother I have and I would like to have some relationship with her.

These are all great answers!!! Thank you all!
Excellent words of insight and fabulous advice! ((Thank you for sharing)) I'm so glad (can I say proud without sounding weird/creepy?) that you not only saw the truth, but found a way to regain your sense of Self, respect and dignity.
Thank you, I Am Rosa. You are very kind and the word "proud" is not creepy at all. I appreciate your thoughtfulness very much.
Thank you for great caring answer!
