While DH and I were dating years ago, she always made negative comments and hurt my feelings, but DH used to say she constantly says things without thinking about them first. I'd begun to ignore those things just for my sanity.
Since LO was born, I've been trying very hard to please her even though I still resent her for negative comments in the past. I often write to her sincerely and close out with "love ya" and such and such.
I still feel like she and I will never be close enough as MIL and DIL as she has a daughter, and they're both extremely close as I am with my mom.
For DH's an LO's sake, I want to put things in the past and be happy but am not sure what else to do. I always feel like there's an ulterior motive when she asks me something or talks to me.
