The woman found herself caught between her mother and ex-husband. She had recently divorced her ex-husband due to the deterioration of their relationship and his mistreatment of her. 

“Our relationship was not good at the end for anyone involved and the numerous ways that he had mistreated me,” she said.

Despite the challenges they had faced together, the woman believed her ex-husband to be narcissistic and explained that their relationship had become incredibly toxic. 

However, since the divorce, the woman and her ex-husband have been getting along better than they did when they were married.

The woman’s mother had also been a source of toxicity in her life. She had a judgmental attitude and tended to point out the woman’s failures. 

“Out of 40+ years, I can’t remember her cheering me on for much. She has also always treated me differently than my siblings/other family members,” she said.

As the woman and her ex-husband tried to maintain a civil and friendly relationship for the sake of their child, they found themselves navigating this new, challenging dynamic. They engaged in some light flirting and would still hug each other.

Other people around the woman noticed her newfound happiness. “My coworkers and several other family members have noticed and commented on how I seem happier and less stressed,” she said.

However, her mother disapproved of her closeness to her ex-husband, claiming it gave him false hope for a potential reunion. The woman expressed her frustration, stating, “He and I have already talked about this, and we communicate well now that we are split. He seems upset that she said that, and I am as well.”

“We do not want a relationship where our child’s parents hate each other, dislike each other, or have a hard time interacting with each other on any level,” she explained, which made her even more annoyed by her mother’s comment.

She and her ex-husband were friends before their relationship, and she was still adjusting to living without him always around. “I don’t want to give off the wrong ideas to anyone, but I like our relationship how it is now,” she said.

She asked the internet for advice

One user replied, “Based on what you’ve reported here, I have one piece of advice. GET YOUR MOM OUT OF YOUR LIFE COMPLETELY!”

Another user said, “On the note of the ex, he doesn’t really seem truly narcissistic if things have improved. Narcissists would tend to ramp up manipulative tactics and try to turn people against you.”
