I’m worn out and I really don’t know what I’m supposed to do. I’ll call her Vesna for anonymity.
First off, she’s grossly immature, or seems it to me. Sometimes I feel like I’m dealing with a 14 year old rather than someone almost twice my age. If she can’t get her own way, she throws a wobbler and sulks. Any attempt to try and correct her or point out an alternate point is met with resistance and hostility.
She also has an attitude of ‘well I believe/think it so it’s gospel’. I feel like I’m having the same conversations time after time because she just can’t get it into her head that alternate opinions exist. There’s even been times when she’s outright tried to force said opinions on me.
With this, she seems to think she has to be the star of the show. Anything which doesn’t have her centre stage is turned so it is about her. This is particularly apparent when I first became interested in Catholicism and Orthodoxy, as all she seemed to be concerned about was her own opinions and what any decisions I make would mean for her. At no point did she even show the remotest interest in my feelings, ask me about it or even remotely engage with me.
So what do I do now? I feel like a broken record…
