Any adult kids out there that feel emotionally damaged from parents using 'guilt trip',manipulations on them?

you have no idea. Don't get me wrong, I love my mother dearly but I have dealt with self esteem issues, self doubt issues, relationship problems and even depression problems the majority of my life because of it. See my mother is very passive aggressive and she's a very sensitive person. I mean she's had a hard life so when someone does something that she doesn't agree with or doesn't like she victimizes herself and then comes the "wo is me" guilt trips. For example if I were to want to go to a friend's house but she doesn't want me to go for no reason other than she wants me to stay home or something, her response would be something like "okay just do what you want" and she'll walk off and cry. I am 23 and I really didn't figure out what was going on until about a few years ago when I admitted myself into therapy for sever depression. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying my mother is the one and only main cause of the depression, I'm just saying she's the root of it because everything I was dealing with, what I discussed in therapy, subconsciously I kept bringing up all the guilt trips my mom put on me. See I figured out that I never really felt like I had my own free will. I always felt like my emotions and decisions revolved around my mother. I blamed myself for feeling certain emotions, when I look back I realized how much I said to myself, if I make this decision, how is it going to affect mom? And trust me when you enter college with a mindset like that, a mindset where you don't accept yourself, always trying to reject your own feelings, always feeling like you're living for someone else and not yourself, ruining relationships because you learned that being passive aggressive and putting guilt trips on people will make them love you (when no the hell it doesn't)....and worse off when you have no idea what's going on with your own emotions or why you're so subconsciously angry at everything....you can imagine why the depression took it's toll on me. I mean don't get me wrong I love my mother dearly and things are getting better. I've learned to love myself and make decisions for myself and set boundaries with her but it's still a little difficult. I think the hardest thing is to not put 100% blame on your parents. I mean no body's perfect and I'm sure they mean no harm by their actions, but that's a difficult battle to fight knowing all the damage they unknowingly caused for you...I just try to say to myself that she did the best she could. and find the strength to accept her for who she is without it affecting me.
