parents will make you feel worse than anybody smh… Don’t internalize it. What she said is her issue not yours. You are doing the best you can for you at this moment in time
I’m keenly aware no one is beating down my door, but at minimum I’d expect her to say “I’m proud of how strong you are and I see you are willing to be alone instead of taking something that’s not right for you.”
That last conversation with my mother really hurt my feelings. Seriously? So after everything I’ve been working through the last two years I’m supposed to accept anything rather than having nothing? I’m really dumbfounded and now I’m sitting second guessing whether or not I’m asking too much.
Me: I'm lonely.
Mom: Maybe you should lower your standards.
Mom: What? At least you'll have somebody.
Me: I have to go.
Who wants to go to The Roots Picnic with me?
