I could have written this post myself, only I’m the one who’s unemployed, and I’m younger than you.

I love that my mom and I are so close, but I too wish that I wasn’t so emotionally invested in her opinions…

I don’t have any advice for you, but I can totally relate.

maybe you should limit your lunches with her to once or twice a week (you can definitely find cheap things to bring to work for lunch). make an effort to talk to your fiance about what you would normally share with your mom everyday, and keep reminding yourself that her opinion is not the end-all be-all.

I used to be in the same boat, I miss it 🙁 There’s no law that says you can’t still be close to your mom just because you’re engaged/married. If it doesn’t bother your SO, then I wouldn’t worry about it. On another note, make sure you share all the sweet and positive stuff he does as well 🙂
