My aunt is so possessive she wants me to drop friends to have me all to herself

DEAR DEIDRE: MY aunt, who I live with, is making me choose between her and my friends after I told her about some of their little failures.

We have always been close but recently she has started saying I don’t love her and have no self-respect.

She used to like my best friends but because I let slip that they sometimes drink a lot, she has decided they are horrible people and I should have nothing to do with them.

I’ve known my friends for 40 years and I can’t just drop them.

My aunt is possessive and wants me all to herself.

I’m a woman of 55. My aunt is 81 and has become really bossy as she gets older.

DEIDRE SAYS: There is room in your life for your aunt and your friends, so don’t allow her to control or manipulate you.

You don’t have to tell her anything about your private life – you are most definitely an adult, after all.

She will try every which way to get her own way but be firm. My support pack Standing Up For Yourself will help you to learn assertiveness techniques.
