I’ve been with my girlfriend for the last nine months. She now wants to move in with me but I keep making excuses. She’s fine, in fact she’s better than fine, but I am secretly terrified that she will turn into my mother.
My mother was definitely a horrid parent. Forever putting me down, losing her temper over the least thing, constantly critical and lots more that I read on the my horrid parent website.
I’ve worked really hard to build up my confidence, be positive and enjoy my life. I’ve got a great career, lots of friends and when I go to their homes I see how family life can work very well.
BUT it’s a big step for me to live with someone and risk it all going wrong.
