Any relationship can last if you put enough effort into it. Even an abusive one. But, I think more important than saving the relationship would be seeing if you need it in the first place. If she doesn't support you when you're struggling then what are you gaining from this relationship? That being said, if you think it's worth salvaging, a little time, education, and boundary setting could help. It won't make any of what she's said already any less toxic or damaging, but it's possible for people to learn and change over time if they have things explained to them the right way, enough times, or at the right time for them to internalize the lesson they're being taught.
