she wants me to open up to her, but when I do she acts cold. she is so vindictive.
She does not know how to respond thus she goes cold and uncaring I am sorry she is not able to be supportive for you
I always had a similar issue with my mother. She thought we were the best of friends, but in reality I could never tell her anything because she just couldn't - or wouldn't - deal with it and would change the subject.
I have recently had to stop speaking to her because of her manipulative behaviour. It hurts me a lot that she won't try to change her behaviour and would rather lose her daughter, but I just couldn't cope with it anymore.
I really hope you can speak to your mother about this and have the relationship you want with her.
She sounds as if sge wants to listen but doesnt know quite how to express herself.
Maybe trying again but slowly introduce what it is that concerns you, but by bit.
Hoestly I am just tired of trying to deal with her and this one sided family.
