here's what happened, i was at the bathroom when my mom suddenly opened my door even without knocking. do you think its right? even if this is her house, though shes not living here anymore because she's settled in UK. shes only visiting her house but i just felt how arrogant she become especially now she's earning high and a british citizen, she doesnt know how to respect me. doesnt even bother to knock. i didnt talked to her anymore because she will get mad, i just pushed the door back when she tried to open it saying she needs a bathroom desperately but because she annoyed i let her wait for a bit longer. for some parents here, do you treat youre children like that considering its youre house where she is? no respect for privacy, i dont know why i have a mom like this.

Almost reminds me of a friend in almost exactly the same situation as you. She would simply hold her tongue because she doesn't want to bite the hand that's feeding her. Her sister's attitude has even gotten worse because of her current status as a Canadian citizen, always looking down on a little helpless Filipina such as her. She's made bad decisions in the past, hence, her dependence on her sister abroad. That seemed to have given the Canadian sister the right to walk all over her younger sister but this really shouldn't be the case. Respect should be given regardless of social status but unfortunately, some people are full of themselves and some people allow the abuse. Next time, lock the door. And if I were you, I will try to better myself so I can get out of this co-dependent relationship which is their control over me.

@Strawberry18 Just stay humble, and keep making goals for yourself. But you should have boundaries as well. When they've crossed that boundary, you must speak out. Just because they are supporting you, doesn't earn them the right to treat you like trash.

theyre always waiting for me to wash their plates/cutleries/glasses for them, and give me a bad look if i didnt cooked their food in the morning. they pay for me and my daughers expenses/foods here so i still do the chores/foods for them in the morning in return then they do a few for the rest of the days. its just this incident not knocking on the door really pissed me inside. they did a lot of annoying things to me.
