my mother keeps on making me promises, then doesn’t keep her word for it. it really hurts me, and i make it obvious, but she keeps on doing the same thing. she wants me to tell her stuff that’s going on with me mentally, but damages the relationship and acting like nothing happened. am i just overthinking it..?

    No you're not overthinking. I've experienced similar situations where people have been unempathetic and continue to be unapologetic for their hurtful behaviors. Have you tried to express to your mom how it makes you feel when she breaks promises and then keeps doing the same behaviors? Pointing out specific situations and starting a discussion with her could be a way to then set better boundaries for your relationship moving forward
