- Wedding: October 2010
I love my Mom, as any daughter would. Sometimes though my Mom can be a little extreme. My Mother comes off being really religious. Sometimes though she is just overbearing. Lately, it seems to really be irritating. Don’t get me wrong. I’m christian, and so perhaps some would say I should throw stones. But I can’t take it anymore! Mom is the type of person, where usually she is making everything about her, and if it’s not she makes it about herself. Even at my wedding shower, when we were all going around and introducing ourselves, my Mom felt the need to tell everyone that she prayed for the longest time that I would meet a wonderful man, like my fiance. Which I doubt because, mind you I’m only 21. So today, I finally could not take it anymore. She is always writing on Facebook about bible this, God that, were all damned…. yet she point blank attacks my Aunt (who is expecting and due the week of my wedding) on her Facebook wall. I told my Mom that she needs to stop trying to cause family drama. My Mom is the only one in our whole family who never is apart of any family things. She doesn’t even show up for holidays or Birthdays..nothing! I told her that this is suppose to be a happy time in my life, and that I can’t stand to put up with the drama. I also told her that if this is how she is going to be at my wedding then I can’t deal with it, so she shouldn’t come if she is going to be immature. I don’t know if that was the right thing to do or not..but I’m giving myself an ulcer over constantly being upset by her. I don’t know how to handle this. My fiance told me just to leave it alone and not to talk to her for a while. But we only have two months till our wedding. Any ideas?
