As a person, i am somewhat introverted and expect privacy and others to have a sense of boundary. My mil, is the kind that wants everyone in the house to talk only to her all the time. If my husband and I are in the kitchen, she makes an entry every 1 minute to pretend to take something in the kitchen. Sometimes, she just opens a cupboard and closes and goes. Same when we are in the living room or any common area. This extremely nosy nature is getting me crazy. She is also jealous and resentful. Even though she is older by 30 years to me, she wants to be me. She knows that I resent it since I keep retreating into our room most of the time out of frustration. Either she cannot help it our does not want to co-operate and does it deliberately. I have tried to ignore it, but it's been a decade and i cannot accept it. My company has moved to full wfh and in the last 2 years i have gone crazy having to put up with her invading my privacy to evesdrop. I resent her for it since i don't ever get a break from her and mostly live inside my room to stay sane. How can I live like this for the rest of my life? My husband is the only child and she is stuck here with me 24x7x365 in a single floor apartment.its like she can't stand others talking to me leaving her out. If I see inherent goodness, i can adjust. But if people are deliberately coming in to interfere knowing they are distrubing, it bothers me. In our house, everyone used to give each other space. Here she is widowed and has no hobby and is in our hair all the time. Pls Help me cope. I try distractions and hobbies, they all work for a few days only.
