I was discussing with my Mum today about my hopefully up coming engagment, that I’m so totally obviously and rightfully excited about! I was explaining to her that he’s dropped some not so obvious hints about proposing THIS weekend!
My excitement quickly turned to dismay when she again said “How many times are we going to discuss this? I mean, you don’t even know if he’s going to do it this weekend!” This REALLY upset me! It’s not even like we’ve talked about this for a while. As a matter of fact, I’ve stopped sharing many details with her over the last few months because she’s said this sort of thing to me before. This is why I joined this site, you girls are WONDERFUL! I wish I could get the love and support from my Mum that I’ve found here!!
I feel like she doesn’t want to hear details and I’m afriad if I mention something to her, I can’t revisit the subject again. I tell her these things because I want her advise, support and for her to join in my excitement. I feel lucky to have her around to discuss these details, and I don’t take that for granted for one minute! (My SO lost his Mother 7 years ago)
I just don’t understand, she really likes him and I know she’s happy for us. My Sis got married last May, maybe that’s taken away some of the excitement away for her. This post was not ment to be a personal ”pitty trip” but I’m just feeling rather alone because of her repeated reaction. I’m at the point where I’ve decided not to share anything else with her.
Anybody else going though this? Or have any thoughts on the matter?
