• Do you like Dostoevski?
  • Act like the things she says doesn't bother you. Keep smiling and being nice and pleasant towards her when she hands out the comments that push your buttons. It will not only make her look bad if she is doing this on purpose, she will give up when she knows she can't get to you. :)
  • Take a book along and wear headphones and listen to music quite a bit when you start feeling stressed. Also, when she brings up negative things, try bring out the positive things. I have people like your guy's mom in my life too and it is so frustrating. Does she cut you down too?
