Over recent years my siblings and I have come to realise that our Mother is a compulsive liar. It’s not her fault, she’s the product of parents who couldn’t express love or help her build any self-esteem. She is totally incapable of change and any attempt to address is met with what we term “the wall”. I am so grateful for my siblings (and therapy) because they bear witness, it’s very difficult for anyone else to understand how difficult it is to deal with.
