I am trying to establish a close relationship with my mother because she’s always comparing me to those family friends whom have a close relationship with their mothers. But this is getting really hard because every time I tell her stuff, she gets angry at me. She’s angry at me for being honest with her. If this is what happens then I’d rather not share anything to her anymore. Honestly, I don’t trust that my mother can zip her mouth. She just can’t stop calling up her friends to gossip.
If she wants to become close with me, she must listen and not lecture me about my decisions. It’s my life. Even if she is part of my life, she is not me. She cannot tell me what I can and cannot do.
