That's part of the problem he has never dealt with his issues from his upbringing so fails to see what he does as something wrong.
All the pain and manipulation from his childhood he is a broken man that won't try to fix himself but to protect himself from rejection by pushing others away with his actions.
Its a sad story but I need to move on and protect my son.
Most of my family have drifted apart or into little groups that snipe at the others, so I don't think it will be all that hard to miss them, over time have had two sisters I hardly know and two brothers I hardly know and two that I do but am somewhat ashamed of one as he is so sexist
My mother seems to want to care but it just seems so fake and unnatural....as she has never been interested in me all that much before, but now that I am comfortable will being affectionate with my partners family (hugging when saying hello and goodbye) that she tries to force me to hug her too!?
It actually makes me unwilling to want to hug my partners family now and I hate it when my mother tries to hug me.
