When I told my therapist about the sexual abuse my aunt put not only me but her own son through, his kneejerk reaction was to tell me that he wished he could contact the state authorities about it but the state’s statute of limitations meant he could do nothing.

But when I told my mother about the sexual abuse my aunt put not only me but her own son through, she reponded by telling me that made her feel sad for my aunt who was clearly very unhappy, because hurt people hurt people.

I do not think I will ever get over how angry I am about my mother’s callousness.

Yeah, I get you . . . told a counselor about my dad's violent abuse, and she asked my what I had done to deserve it.

I told her, "I was born".

She didn't buy it.

I cancelled all further sessions.

That she frames her attitude as one of concerned caring makes it especially hard to deal with.
Would be interesting to hear a psychologist assess that as part of a pattern of endless passive-aggressive behavior.

But for a mother to constantly project such a thing on her own son, yikes. It amounts to being in an "emotional flat spin" with only one real option. Eject! Eject! Eject!

She seems to take delight in crushing a person, and that person is you. Hopefully you have other good people to confide in.
