Wait… it’s my life, not yours.

So after everything that’s happened the past few days, it’s understandable that my mum wants to be here for me and support me. At first I thought it was lovely that she cared so much. She wanted to know everything that had happened and kept asking how things were and whether he’d spoken to me.

But, now it feels like we’ve got the same conversation on repeat; we discuss the issues about the guy I was seeing. However,  now I’m getting over it, she keeps bringing it up and talking about it and seems more concerned than I do. She told me I’ll find someone else. Great, exactly what I want to hear. But now she’s telling me what I can and can’t do, and who I can talk to.

I told her that I’d been talking to a friend I hadn’t spoken to in a while. I spoke to him for the first time in a long time last night. He has always just been my friend, and I’m not sure whether it will amount to anything else, but at the moment I don’t care because I want to be single for a while. He spoke to me again tonight because we both agreed that we cannot lose touch again.

However,  when I mentioned that he’d spoken again, she immediately jumped to conclusions that I was going to be something more with this guy. I tried telling her that he is JUST a friend. I go to an all girls school, so it is nice to talk to guys from time to time.

I do not talk to him differently. I do NOT flirt or hint about anything. I just talk. Like I would with my friends from school.

Why is it so hard for my mum to understand that I am only friends with this guy?

I’ve come to the conclusion that although I want to tell her a lot of things about my life, I obviously can’t talk about guy friends anymore, as she jumps to conclusions and lectures me.

Any advice is appreciated.
