I am in conflict with my mum. Basically, she feels disowned by relatives and because of this, she does not want me to have anything more to do with them. I admit that I do not get on with all of my relatives and some of them have not wanted to know me, but there are one or two who do and I like them, but these ones who do, do not openly want contact with my mum and she feels that out of respect, I should tell them that since they do not seem to want to have contact with her then I have to cut contact with them.

I do not want to do this, but it is an ongoing battle with my mum and me and she is persuading me to tell them and reluctantly I have said I would do so, but have been avoiding the inevitable because I don't really want to do it. My mum said to me that if these relatives were any good at all, they would not only have contact with me, but with her as well.

What does anyone else think?
