She's always giving her opinion on how to live, how she would like my house to be?, or at times is a bit dominant controlling. She says inappropriate things to my partners sister, who lives not far, be it right or wrong, then makes matters worse for myself. She fell out with my brother's wife few years ago under similar circumstances, and i thought she would of learnt something obviously not. She said to me if i fall out with him, well so be it, like she cannot keep her mouth shut. I feel like i cannot tell her anything regarding my r/ship now, for fear of it getting back?. Clearly its making matters worse, and causing me a lot of stress to the point my anxiety effects my eating and life and mental health. I get thoughts like shes doing this on purpose, how can one be so stupid?, im not a baby. Just so opinionated and cant she see she is causing more damage than good? any advice would be helpful, i feel like she is bridging a gap between myself and partner, right or wrong and i am forced to take sides. Thanks in Advance.
