    Her entering your apartment, technically, was not illegal because you gave her a key. However, unless there was an understanding between you as to why she might come into your home, her behavior could be considered as violating your personal space. While her intentions may have been genuine, her choice has impacted on you and could suggest she likes to be in control or at least, have some control/impact over you. Given how this behavior has affected you, have a private conversation with this person and tell her how you have been impacted, how you feel her behavior was inappropriate and perhaps disrespectful. Ultimately, you can decide how much/how little interaction you will have with this person moving forward and if necessary, reset the boundaries between you so you are no further affected by any choices made. Additionally, sorry for your loss. Take care of you.

You are not responsible for other people and so if you truly want to focus on your own wellbeing, it is essential that you re-set the boundaries with everyone in your life.

Be open to realizing your choices up to now is detrimental to your emotional, mental and physical wellbeing, so if you want that to change, you must make different choices. Given your current fragile state, have a conversation with your GP and ask for a referral to a professional mental healthcare professional, so you can safely peel back the emotional layers and come to better understand yourself and why you carry this perceived burden to be everything to everyone else. The people in your life do not want you to change because - for them - they are complacent and comfortable with you being their 'go to ' person. They will not change, so you must if you want to find joy and peace in your own life. Talk with a trusted friend so you do not feel alone and see your GP as soon as you can. This is time to take care of you.

    There is no obligation for anyone to buy a gift, no matter the occasion. Gift giving - ideally - is done with good intention, loving sentiment and joy, and simply because the giver wants to show they care to the receiver. When obligation is part of the equation, the loving sentiment can turn sour or resentful. If you truly do not understand why your husband chooses not to give you gifts for special occasion, ask him to clarify his reasoning. Also, would you truly wish to receive a gift knowing it had been given to you out of obligation rather than with genuine sentiment?
