Stay out of my life

Today, my mom tried to worm her way back into my life by manipulating my brother into doing the dirty work for her. I pretended to swallow the bullshit and invited her over, just so I could slam the door in her face. My brother says I went too far, like he somehow forgot what a shit mom she was. FML

I mean, I get wanting to extract some sort of "revenge" I guess, but I was a completely neglected child too, and I feel as though the best choice is to extract that person from your life completely. You may get some sort of short term satisfaction from doing something rude to them, but it doesn't solve anything what so ever. I had an abusive father, and there's not a damn thing in this world that could come up that would make me ever want to see him. If you really want to get back at her, I feel like cutting her off completely would have made more sense, not pulling some sort of passive aggressive stunt.

You did the right thing, OP. Try to communicate to your brother that he is being brainwashed by your mom. If he doesn't get the message or relapses, give him the same treatment.
