I know I wasn't great but don't feel I was as bad as she feels I was. I think she needs to grow up and move on emotionally. She thinks I'm controlling, which I can be but she's living in my home so
Have you two thought about doing counseling to help solve the issues together? You two have to make peace with the past and learn to know one another as adults not mom/daughter. The whole dynamic has to change if you both want a better relationship.
