I’m just venting a little… I’ll get over it but…
I love my mom and she is my best friend, but sometimes I just want to cry. I know she says she is only offering an opinion… But it doesn’t always feel that way.
I feel like when I get really excited about something, she just poo-poos it immediately and then I’m not excited anymore. I’m frustrated and sad and stressed out. I feel like because she is paying for a lot that her opinion should matter in my decisions, but I see this getting to be a bigger and bigger problem.
Last night we saw a venue and I was so excited about it coming home. It’s about average for places I’ve seen and maybe even a little cheaper than most. This morning she says she thinks it’s too expensive and I should look for other places. I have been researching and researching and I can’t find these mythical places that have a $3000 minimum for food and $12 meals she claims every tells her all about. They don’t exist out here, and I feel like some place that has $12 meals… the food won’t be great… And FH and I? We’re foodies. We want good food!
How do you get over naysaying?
