Funny intersection of thread topics

Recommended Posts

I have posted about my NPD mom. NPDs are notoriously bad gift givers, for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's because they just aren't empathetic and don't pay attention to what you would like, and sometimes the reasons are more manipulative. I also posted a funny article here about ridiculous plaques/wall art that say "live laugh love "and stuff like that (it was funny, with commentary about each stupid sign). I also posted it on Facebook, which my mother religiously reads.


Guess what my mom just gave me as a gift? You got it. A wall plaque (from Walmart) that says "be still."

"I'm gonna PROVE that she's wrong. I'm gonna get her some wall art and she's gonna LOVE it OR ELSE"


EXACTLY. Or "I'm gonna set up a situation where I can be offended (my gift isn't displayed in your home?!?!) so that you can feel guilty and grovel."


I'm also a bit suspicious of the "Be Still" exhortation. I'm sure it's linked to some failure to be peaceful in the midst of my busy life.  :001_rolleyes:
