I decided i will be going to my mothers house tomorrow to fi


I decided i will be going to my mothers house tomorrow to finally get the rest of my belongings. My mother along with my brother who are both abusive will be there. I am a little afraid because i do not want confrontation as my brother is staying in my old room. I felt like getting the rest of my belongings will one of the final steps to cutting connection with them all and their narcissistic ways. I am feeling super anxious about going. Thankfully my partner is coming with me. Any other advice in how to act while i go over ?

@Lr23 I’m glad you got your belongings n held your composure! That’s very tough thing to do n I’m sorry can’t see your grandma anymore.. do you think you could meet her alone out of house sometimes?

@preciousgirl @foundlove Thank you!! it was really hard but I am proud I held everything in. It wasnt till I got home that I cried a little. it did suck but I made it through! felt a little guilty crying because I felt like my brother had gotten to me so I felt weak. but I'm ok! I am super glad I have no ties to that house anymore. I took what was mine and left. left tons of other stuff I don't use and are meaningless but I had no time to clean it out. don't care if it gets tossed either. my gramma is 88 years old so its really hard for her to travel places alone. I can always ask her home attendant to bring her downstairs and I can take my gramma to my house for a day. BUT that will also cause a stir for my gramma when she gets back home but maybe ill take that chance. also taking her to a restaurant will be risky and not an option as she hasn't gotten vaccinated and in my state u are required to be vaccinated to eat indoors. Eventually I will end up just picking her up and bring her to my home for a quick bite here.

@Lr23 you are human so to cry after experiencing such horrendous behaviour does not make you weak. I hope that in time you will be able to see how strong you really are!!

So glad you will be able to have your grandma over at your house - that sounds fab.
